CBD Websites Made Easy

Setting up a CBD store doesn’t need to be difficult.

Save yourself time and avoid mistakes. Contact us today to set up your Ecommerce store selling CBD Oil.

Get Started Here

If you own a CBD store, many of the traditional payment options are not available to you. Even though CBD sales are legal, banks and other payment solutions are way off the pace and still see the product as ‘high-risk.’ For this reason, there are payment gateways which specifically specialise in the Cannabis/CBD Oil industry.

This is one of our most popular blog articles where we run through available options to begin accepting payments for your online products, as well as alternative methods other websites are using across the UK and Europe to sell the CBD products. We will keep this article as up to date as possible, always contact the payment gateway provider directly to discuss and confirm details of setting up an account when selling CBD products online.

CBD Oil Friendly Payment Gateways

It is important to find a payment merchant that accepts common payment methods such as credit cards, as well as offering the highest levels of confidentiality and security. Your merchant should also be fully certified with the PCI Security Standards Council.

Worldnet provides a WordPress plugin that can be integrated with your website, however, the integration isn’t as easy or as quick as others on our list. Their plugin is also compatible with Shopify. Both plugins are PCI compliant and while Worldnet claim they offer subscription functionality, this has been problematic to integrate.

Funds are automatically settled to the company’s business account on a daily basis so that if a payment is made on a Monday, the funds will be available in the company’s account by Wednesday morning. This is in comparison to other solutions where it can take 7-10 days for payments to reflect, with reserves of up to 10% also being held back for six months in some cases.
