Tobacco and Cigar Companies can use echeck as a reliable for payment processing. ACH processing for high risk tobacco merchants is becoming popular now. We may try to get an approval for echeck processing. Approval is subject to the analysis by the payment processing company.

Echeck Processing for merchants selling Tobacco products, eCig, hookah, and vaporisers. This industry is massive in terms of growth potential. Every day new buyers place orders online for their favourite cigarette brand. The eCig or the Electronic cigarette is becoming very popular these days.

In some countries, it is low risk business but in many countries, it is a high risk industry. Very few payment processing companies are comfortable in opening merchant accounts/ Payment Gateways for Tobacco or Electronic Cigarette. eCig’s are mostly manufactured in China. They are cheap too when you order in bulk. The sellers make huge margin by adding a big markup on the cost price.
