Why Do Some Shopify Users Need A High Risk Merchant Account?

Shopify users sometimes need an alternative to the in-house credit card processing solution, Shopify Payments, for one of the following reasons:

  1. Industry Is High Risk
    Your Shopify ecommerce store sells some products within industries that Shopify categorizes as “high risk.” This categorization is up to Shopify’s discretion (and may change over time), but in general, a “high risk” categorization may encompass industries such as supplements & nutraceuticals, vape products, travel, etc.
  2. Previous Chargebacks
    Your Shopify account has received multiple chargebacks within a relatively small sample size of orders. Depending on your Shopify store order volume, even two or three chargebacks within a month could trigger an automated or manual review of your merchant account.
