Payment Solutions For Every Business
Electronic cigarette merchant account solutions and vape-related payment processing has become scrutinized over the years due to federal and state regulation, especially when transactions are card-not present for eCommerce businesses for example. Electronic cigarette (e-Cig) and vape merchants have been in a rapidly growing industry that has had its ups and down. Starting out by processing when retail vape & e-cig shops first start popping up, Maverick has seen the industry go through changes firsthand.
With any growing industry comes eCommerce, which was the big growth step for e-cig and vape. With scrutiny from different regulatory agencies, traditional banks and payment processors have stayed clear of the industry. As eCommerce grew, so did the scrutiny, which was mainly due to the legal age restrictions coupled with “reputational” risk due to pushback from different governmental agencies. Working alongside the first in the industry, which includes retail and brick & mortar stores, wholesalers, and eCommerce businesses, Maverick understands the different complexities of the e-cig and vape industry.
Electronic Cigarette Merchant Account Types
Wholesalers – Processing for the largest wholesale merchants in the e-cig and vape space has made Maverick a truly valuable payment processor for wholesalers in need of processing large ticket transactions coupled with fraud prevention tools and a reliable provider.
Retail – By working with not only some of the first, but also biggest brick & mortar e-cig and vape shops has made Maverick gain knowledge in the market. Being able to integrate with all major countertop terminals, mobile & tablet applications, and point-of-sale systems, we truly assist with taking merchants to the next level.
eCommerce – With regulatory and banking scrutiny due to age verification requirements combined with pushback due to e-juice containing higher risk ingredients such as nicotine, card-not-present transactions have made it especially difficult for eCommerce e-cig and vape merchants. All of our services, from our merchant account to payment gateway, are e-cig, e-juice, hardware/mod, and vape-friendly, which can assure reliable and secure processing. With seamless integration with shopping carts, including Shopify, BigCommerce, 3dCart, WordPress and WooCommerce, our gateway compatibility allows for quick and easy synchronization.
By being a strong supporter of the e-cig and vape space, Maverick is a not only competitive payment processor, but one who will continue to back merchants operating in the industry. As being one of the first processors for merchants selling electronic cigarettes and vape products, we have also been a strong believer, which also may be due to most of the Maverick team vaping themselves!
