Nutraceutical Credit Card Processing

The nutraceutical industry is booming in the US and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. In fact, it’s estimated that the nutraceutical industry will grow to an astounding $600+ billion industry by 2024. This nearly unprecedented growth is a huge opportunity for merchants to grow a great business. However, they’re still dealing with a lot of the same nutraceutical credit card processing difficulties that have been around for several years.

We know how difficult finding reliable nutraceutical merchant account processing can be since most payment processors classify nutraceuticals as high-risk businesses. As such, we’ve built our business to specialize in providing nutraceutical credit card processing to businesses when other processors like banks, Stripe, Square, and PayPal may not accept your business transactions. Finding a merchant services provider that can help process nutraceutical payment transactions is crucial to your business’ success. WizoPay is here to help steer that success in the right direction.

Why is a Nutraceutical Credit Card Processing Business Considered High-Risk?

There are three main reasons why nutraceutical businesses are considered high risk:

  1. The industry is regulated by the US Government and cannot make certain guarantees, promises, or claims without extensive clinical trials on their products. Compliance with these government regulations requires a considerable amount of underwriting by credit card processors, which is why most refuse the business of nutraceutical merchants.
  2. Nutraceutical businesses also have to deal with frequent, higher-than-average chargebacks. Product performance can vary from person-to-person and may result in a high number of chargebacks from buyers that don’t see the results the product claims. A large number of Nutra businesses run on a month-to-month subscription model that often results in chargebacks after an initial “honeymoon” period with the product.
  3. There can be an adverse perception of the industry based on the negative press over the past few decades. Merchant providers may not want to be associated with the industry if they believe the negative connotation that businesses are selling products that “may or may not work.”

What to Consider When Selecting a Nutraceutical Credit Card Processing Company

There are several significant considerations to make when trying to find a partner to provide you nutraceutical merchant processing:

  • A partner with extensive experience and positive relations with companies in the nutraceutical industry.

  • Mobile processing and small card readers for smartphones are incredibly important for working with nutraceuticals as many purchases are made online, at trade shows, and at events.

  • Advanced fraud detection tools will allow you to set custom filters and thresholds on your payment gateway. For example, you can set a limit on the number of transactions you accept in one hour, curbing fast, high-volume fraud attempts common in the eCommerce space.

  • Nutraceuticals do not need FDA approval before they hit the market, but their sellers are legally responsible for following labeling, advertising, and ingredient requirements specified by the FDA. They’re considered high-risk because the laws and regulations under the FDA change regularly in their industry.

  • Your merchant provider needs to have a team seasoned in addressing the challenges and concerns of the industry as policies and regulations change often.
