Customers Tell Me That The Bank Is Blocking Their Purchase Of Crypto Currency From My Website!

“It’s so annoying! All I want to do is sell CBD via the internet, but then the current payment gateway I was about to go live with, tells me that they’re suspending my account because I’m selling CBD online!”


Talk about annoying, so why are the mainstream payment gateways so awkward when it comes to allowing a legitimate business like yours to sell CBD online? Well unfortunately, it’s ‘one of those’ things because as soon as you mention ‘CBD’ they’ll just mention something about an ‘Acceptable Use Policy’ and that’s that. Or is it?


So what alternatives are there? Well there are some lesser known payment providers who will allow you to use their payment gateway, but what are the pitfalls? There can be quite a few – namely website integration issues, costly upfront fees, and unreasonably high card transaction fees. What then can you do, to sell CBD online, without being rejected by the popular payment gateways – or experiencing high cost / complex integration issues with other lesser known payment gateways?

We know already, that in some CBD markets and geographic locations, card payments alone can prove to be very restrictive and can really squeeze the growth of your business. This can be due to certain card issuers refusing to transact payments in specific countries, or card issuers who are simply unable to transact payments in specific markets due to a variety of reasons.


The good news is that with ePay247 those problems are a thing of the past! We have an industry leading gateway payments technology that provides multiple powerful solutions to empower your CBD business to grow more rapidly by accepting these innovative online payments including eGateway, eToken, eBank2Bank, eCrypto and eSMS.
