E-cigs, or electronic cigarettes are big business, both in-stores and online. While many states have age barriers, the sales have not been affected. Regardless if you are a new merchant or an existing merchant, it is the right time to get into electronic cigarette market. Sales are great, and since many TV doctors are touting them as the new tobacco cigarette replacement, sales look as though they will not slow anytime soon. The industry can be lucrative, but there is one huge obstacle in the way: finding an electronic cigarette merchant account.
Every merchant needs a merchant account, and for many industries, they are easy to find. With an electronic cigarette business, this is hardly the case. Many choose to forgo a merchant account because they cannot find an electronic cigarette merchant account. They choose to try a PayPal account, or to go all cash. While the latter option may work, the former is not. With a PayPal business account, you are likely to have your account flagged, or closed, for many reasons, such as too many transactions or too many fraudulent charges. You need to search for an electronic cigarette merchant account, but often it can be hard to know where to look, and what is legitimate. Rest assured, one is closer than you think.
