Choosing BigCommerce as your website builder and shopping cart when starting a CBD, Delta 8, Delta 10, or hemp products business is especially helpful when you have a plan in place to ensure that your ability to accept credit cards online is stable, secure, and affordable.
Even in late 2023, the ability to accept credit cards is a challenge for many CBD, Delta 8 and 10, or hemp products website owners. The vast majority of payment gateways and merchant accounts are still not CBD-friendly!
Fortunately, for CBD business owners who use the stable, feature-rich BigCommerce site builder and shopping cart, the options for payment processing are more diverse when compared to other website builders or shopping carts.
Organic Payment Gateways offers multiple credit card processing solutions that all seamlessly integrate with the native BigCommerce shopping cart. In our experience, the choices available to BigCommerce merchants far exceed the CBD payment gateway options available for other, more restrictive site builders and shopping carts.
Even as a BigCommerce user, finding and integrating CBD payment processing that is stable and reliable can be a challenge. The degree of difficulty can vary based on your exact products, your payment processing history, and the marketing methods your company uses to promote its products.
The pieces required to process payments on BigCommerce
When setting up CBD payment processing for BigCommerce, there are two key elements – mainly the payment gateway and the merchant account. Because of BigCommerce’s flexibility, items like plug-ins and the shopping cart itself are not on the list of concerns when compared to other site builders.
What is a payment gateway?
A payment gateway is a software service that connects the shopping cart – in this example, BigCommerce’s – to a credit card processor or merchant account. The payment gateway securely stores cardholder data for future billing or refunds. At the same time, the merchant account underwrites the relationship and manages the deposit to the business bank account, along with communication with your customer’s credit card company or bank.
While popular payment processors like Stripe and PayPal combine these services and offer bundled packages, they are generally not CBD or nutritional supplement-friendly. CBD-focused providers like Organic Payment Gateways typically use payment gateways such as Authorize.Net or NMI to connect BigCommerce to a CBD merchant account.
Connecting a payment gateway to BigCommerce does not require added software. In the case of BigCommerce, this process is all seamless and straightforward when set up correctly.
Why choose BigCommerce for your CBD e-commerce site?
BigCommerce is a CBD-friendly and cost-effective platform that offers numerous features and advantages. BigCommerce provides more payment processing options than many other shopping carts, allowing you to choose the best solution for your CBD business.
Unlike some other shopping carts, BigCommerce does not significantly restrict the integration of CBD-friendly payment gateways. It offers stable and affordable CBD payment processing options, providing more flexibility compared to platforms like Shopify or Wix. Additionally, BigCommerce does not charge additional fees for using third-party payment processors.
