Owning a business that supplies the popular e-cigs is great business sense as the popularity increases. With recent studies that are pushing these as an alternative to smoking normal cigarettes, as an option to reduce the amount a person smokes. They contain less chemicals than a tobacco product, and the burning of the plant releases toxins into the body. In an e-cig, the nicotine and other chemicals are in liquid form before warming in the e-cig and inhaling in vapour form into the body.
Marketing this product as a way to quit smoking is just one option open to businesses selling these products, having the facilities to allow payments from clients is even more important. This is just one example where an e-cig merchant account would benefit your company.
It will allow for greater acceptance of payment and this can open up opportunities on the internet too. Allowing customers to pay using their credit and debit cards is vital; there is also technology available to allow customers to use their mobile phones for payment, too; for this technology to work you need to ensure that your payment terminal accepts contactless payments.
Studies are suggesting that the use of an e-cig is less damaging to the health of the person smoking and other people nearby. This is because the liquid held in the e-cig heats up and releases vapor, this isn’t smoke, making the product healthier for all.
Out of a possible 12 products that are commonly used, but are unhealthy, the e-cig ranked ninth by a professor of Georgetown University, who put alcohol at first position as the worst product.
It is important in any business; you consider the selling points you want to highlight of a potential product. With the current understanding of the chemicals contained in an e-cig there are questions as to the long-term health problems they can cause. Currently there is no long-term evidence to support either claim that the e-cig cause’s health-related issues. While there is a growing market for the product, allowing your business to bloom with the increase in sales and profits associated with selling the e-cig. Then it is going to allow, at least for the short-term, a possible business opportunity, which you should not miss.
