Smoking Accessories

While starting any business is risky, smoking accessory retailers like bong and pipe stores are susceptible to what many would characterize as an unacceptable risk level. From locating your target market, to often having to operate at less-then-traditional business hours, the last thing you need to worry about is how you're getting paid.

Sadly, due to the nature of credit policies put in place by many of the major financial institutions, it can be difficult, almost impossible, to perform credit card transactions without being shut down. The last thing you need when you're trying to get your business of the ground is for tight banking regulations to limit the success of your legitimate business. Due to the confusing, contradictory, anti-business laws concerning the sale of bongs and pipes, many financial institutions are hesitant to approve your business for the use of credit cards. This means that your customers will be forced to pay with cash, which will cost you valuable customers unless you can convince an ATM company to put a machine in your shop, which would also mean working with the same uncooperative banks who wouldn't approve you for credit cards.

In this increasingly digitized age, cash is becoming less relevant and more and more people are making almost all of their financial transactions electronically. This makes everyone's money much safer and greatly simplifies the process of making a purchase. However, this trend also gives that much more power to the big banks who can decide if your business should be allowed to take credit cards. With the world becoming more and more digital, that's almost like saying that big banks get to choose who can start a business.

That's where PaymentCloud comes in. We have years of experience getting legitimate, high risk businesses just like yours approved to process credit card transactions that will turn your business from a struggling smoke shop into one of the cornerstone businesses in your community. While it seems like banks aren't lining up to do business with you due to the nature of the service you provide, we have the experience necessary to show banks and card companies that you provide a valuable service to your community. Your presence in your community will not only create more jobs, but also provide your customers with the stress relief and emotional health which has been shown to result from the use of your products.

Don't let your dreams of running a successful bong shop go up in smoke, contact us today; we'll make sure your profits have never been higher.
