A payment processing solution for electronic cigarette merchant accounts

Nov 05, 2013

There are so many variables in the electronic cigarette market. How old is the customer? Are they telling the truth when they say they are 18? Is this card holder the real one, or someone that stole it? Fraught with so many questions, there is only one alternative to it all.

Get yourself an electronic cigarette merchant account and wash all the worry away. Well, most of it anyway.


With a merchant account, you are protected from several levels of fraud and thievery. It won’t protect you from the liars out there telling you they are of age, but it will help with a stolen card being processed through your services. You receive reduced amounts of fraud because of their protections, as well as reduced liability. Your operating costs will be reduced and your marketing opportunities increase.

With a merchant account

You can set up a nice website online and leave your store open twenty-four hours a day. While you sleep, your products and services can be sold worldwide. While you are counting sheep, your income can be growing exponentially.

You might have to think of

Since there are legalities tied to a cigarette, no matter where you are, you may have to get creative on how to verify that the customer is of age to smoke. Most of your products are tied to an age preferential product and your servicer will love that you have a plan in place on how to deal with that.

It’s just good business

The only way you can grow is if you have a plan and you work on your plan. A business plan is just a good idea since you want to greet each day with numbers that were higher than the day before. If you don’t have any idea what to do, you need to seek advice from a small business administration. They can point you in the right direction.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.
