If you are selling Vapor products (ejuice, vaporizers, mods, tanks, etc.) and Electronic Cigarettes on Ebay, you run the risk of your listings getting flagged. Once your product gets flagged you will no longer be able to sell that product on Ebay. Any of your other listings will be scrutinized as well causing your income to dry up. Not to mention Ebay might also freeze your funds in the Paypal account indefinitely. Ebay can do this because they own Paypal.
Some reasons why Ebay may flag your product listings. First, Ebay doesn't verify age. As a result underage teenagers and children may be able to purchase. In addition, Ebay doesn't deem Vaporizers and Ecigs as a qualified product to sell on their platform. As a result sellers on Ebay are looking for other alternatives to selling these very popular products.
Vaporizer Merchants and Electronic Cigarette Merchants have found an alternative solution that is stable and scalable. Fortunately, Merchant Discount Rate (MDR) caters to High Risk Merchants such as Vapor Merchants and Ecig Merchants. MDR is a stable credit card processing solution that helps these merchants to accept payments everywhere. Whether you have a retail location, ecommerce, or on the go, MDR is a viable solution for all processing needs.
So, you may ask, how can MDR offer credit card processing for Vapor Merchants but Ebay won't allow the sales of vaporizers and ecigs? Great questions. The main reason is probably that Ebay doesn't want to get sued from disgruntled parents. The bad publicity would snowball for Ebay making them look like a socially irresponsible company. So they would rather allow the business go elsewhere.
On the other hand MDR specializes in offering processing for High Risk Merchants. MDR requires Vaporizer Merchants and Electronic Cigarette Merchants to have an Age Verification on websites before allowing customers to enter. In addition MDR verifies the merchant and informs the bank the scope of business. This helps the bank to understand the risk better. In taking these steps, MDR has a 98% approval rating for Vaporizer Merchants and Electronic Cigarette Merchants.
