First and foremost, you need to sign up to the payment gateway merchant. Do so at the following link:

Once that form has been filled in you will be contacted by Andrew who will talk you through the process of getting setup with this high risk gateway.

High Risk Payments FAQ

Below are is a list

Why do i need High Risk?

High risk payment gateways are needed for business such as competition websites, raffle websites, sweepstakes, lotteries, CBD stores, vaping, holiday makers, the list is endless. The reason for these is the likes of paypal, stripe etc do not accept these business types due to the risk involved in their payments. Thats where companies like the one ive listed above come in!

Why are they more expensive?

As the name suggests these gateways specialise in high risk payments, and in its nature these are more expensive to transact due to the risks involved. As transactions increase on your site and volume goes up, you can see a reduction in your payment gateway fees, but to get started they may be higher than you are used to. From here you can account for these fees in your products.
