Merchant Accounts For Skin & Haircare Products

An Overview

Skin & Haircare Credit Card Processing

Why We Proudly Accept Hair And Skin Care Business As Merchants (Even When Many Processors Don’t)

Many credit card processors do not accept skin and haircare businesses as clients, for several reasons. The first, is that many online retailers of skin and haircare products use recurring billing to charge their clients. This billing method, by its very nature, is more susceptible to friendly fraud chargebacks. The second, is that a few skin and haircare product online retailers have made claims about their products effectiveness that are not based in fact, which has affected the entire industries reputation. And finally, many skin and haircare products that are retailed online use third party manufacturers and fulfillers. Because orders and fulfillment being separated can lead to increased shipping delays and customer chargebacks, this divided business model is considered higher risk. For these three reasons, many credit card processors simply decline to work with skin and haircare product retailers and manufacturers entirely.

Soar Payments, by contrast, has been proud to serve the skin and haircare industry since our company’s inception. Our extensive relationships with credit card processors and sponsor banks who specialize in underwriting businesses perceived as “high risk” enables us to confidently support these businesses (including cosmetics, hair and skin care businesses). Moreover, our fully integrated chargeback and fraud prevention solutions, uniquely position Soar Payments to help protect our merchants from some of the inevitable risks endemic to this industry.
