What is a Hookah Merchant?

The hookah industry is booming. The popularity of hookah smoking is on the rise as merchants and end consumers are looking to move away from cigarettes and towards other alternatives. Smoking hookah is now portrayed as a pleasurable social event set in a hookah bar whereby people gather to share common pleasantries. Unfortunately for hookah merchants, merchant service providers and the payment processing industry as a whole view these products as adult themed products and have pushed them into the high-risk merchant payment processing category. Painless Processing provides domestic payment processing solutions to hookah merchants in the form of credit card processing, Check21, ACH, and eCheck processing solutions. If you’re a hookah supplier, hookah manufacturer, hookah wholesaler, hookah retailer, hookah bar, or hookah e-commerce business selling hookahs, shisha tobacco, charcoal, or hookah accessories we have a solution for you. Call or e-mail us now to speak with one of our hookah merchant account experts and find out more about how Painless Processing can help you process payments.

What is Head Shop Merchant?

Head shop merchants sell an array of products from tobacco or marijuana related paraphernalia to music such as vinyl records and clothing. These shops are typically regarded as an underground movement or dark alley shops that everyone knows exist but no one speaks of. They are heavily scrutinized by lawmakers, citizens, and banking institutions to the point where certain words are phrases are banned from use within the confines of head shop walls. However, with the increasing popularity of medical marijuana head shops are a booming business and head shop merchants are expanding from retail locations to now include e-commerce. The majority of merchant service providers will not provide head shop merchant accounts because of the type of business and others will try to provide offshore merchant accounts. Not Painless Processing; we have extensive experience handling head shop merchant accounts and provide domestic solutions for credit card processing, ACH, Check21, and eCheck processing services. Painless Processing head shop merchant account experts are ready to answer all of your questions and walk you through the application process.
