We are well into the new are where e-cigarettes have gained a stronghold on the market, jumping to a billion dollar industry. If you own or are considering an e-cigarette business it’s time to start thinking about finding a quality payment processing company to maximize your revenue stream.
What Does It Mean to be ‘High-Risk’?
Choosing a merchant service provider can be a challenge when you own a company that primarily sells and distributes e-cigarettes. Why? E-cigarettes are considered to be a high-risk industry due to the debate surrounding vaping and its potential if any, health risks. In May of 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration imposed new regulations for e-cigarette merchants and products, to take effect Aug. 4, 2016. The new FDA rules on e-cigarettes impact areas such as age limits; registering with the FDA and providing information on manufacturing and products; a ban on offering free samples and inspections among other regulations.
