E-Cig Merchants, Rejoice! The First Certified Organic Vapes are Now Available

Jun 16, 2015

Electronic cigarette merchant accounts are going to be in even more high demand, since America’s first ever certified organic vapes are now available. Of course, the jury is still out on vape safety, but right now they do seem to be the best bet when someone wants to give up regular tobacco cigarettes, but still keep the “smoking” habit. Outside of cheap e-cig charges catching fire and exploding, no one really knows about its safety. However, a certified organic vape must be good – or at least better – right?

The company in the news is Vape Organics, and they are serious. They are owned by Trademark Cosmetics, which makes and markets organic cosmetics for various name brands. They know the organic industry, and even though the e-cig industry is still relatively new, the “certified organic” label is going to bring big business to health nuts who would rather not want anyone to know about their vape usage. The company already makes and markets a nicotine-free vape that is made of vegetable and organic extract, and their newest trademark involves certified organic vapes with nicotine. This is revolutionary, as it will be the first case of an organic liquid nicotine substance in the United States.

Back to electronic cigarette merchant accounts. Organic merchants may want to invest in the new organic e-cig market, and there is a good belief that a traditional merchant account provider will not cooperate. This is because e-cig merchants are considered “high risk”. There are many reasons for this, from the newness of the industry, to the high fraudulent charge percentages, to the FDA’s unwillingness to make up their minds on the product.  The FDA has went back and forth in regards to its safety and its influence on those under the age of 18. This has not stopped merchants, who need a merchant account. Thankfully, there are processors that have expertise in the industry, such as EMB. It is always a good idea for merchants to look at multiple merchant account providers, but remember that not all are created equal when it comes to dealing with e-cig merchants.

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.

EMB specializes in working with high-risk merchants. EMB works with many merchants, including but not limited to businesses in these industries: gambling and gaming, adult entertainment, nutraceuticals, vaping and e-cigarettes, electronics, tech support, travel, high-end furniture, weight loss programs, calling cards, e-books and software, and telecommunications.
