High Risk Merchant Accounts For WooCommerce

Get A High Risk Merchant Account That Seamlessly Integrates With Your WooCommerce Store.

 
About WooCommerce: WooCommerce is a popular ecommerce plugin for WordPress. The plugin is essentially a platform that allows small and mid-sized businesses to sell products online, in a simplified way that integrates with the WordPress CMS. WooCommerce was launched in 2011, and was acquired in 2015 by Automattic.com (the operator of WordPress.com).

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

WooCommerce users sometimes need an alternative credit card processing solution (rather than Stripe, Square, PayPal, etc.)  for one of the following reasons:

  • Reason #1: Your WooCommerce store sells some products within industries that “mainstream” merchant account providers such as Stripe and Square categorize as “high risk.” This categorization is up to these providers’ discretion (and may change over time), but in general, a “high risk” categorization may encompass industries such as supplements & nutraceuticals, vape products, travel, etc.
  • Reason #2: Your previous merchant account received multiple chargebacks within a relatively small sample size of orders. Depending on your WooCommerce store order volume, even two or three chargebacks within a month could trigger an automated or manual review of your merchant account.

How To Integrate A New Merchant Account With Your WooCommerce Store

WooCommerce offers several integrated payment solutions, which they refer to as “core payment gateways”:

  • PayPal Standard
  • Stripe
  • PayPal Powered by Braintree
  • Klarna Payments
  • And others.

But merchants who are categorized as “high risk” (and therefore rejected) by Stripe, PayPal, etc. will need to refer to the “premium” payment gateway extensions that WooCommerce offers.

Soar Payments offers eCommerce merchants the option of choosing from either Authorize.net or NMI as their payment gateway, both of which seamlessly integrate with WooCommerce via a “premium” payment gateway extension.

Once you have been approved for a high risk merchant account by Soar Payments, you will automatically be given a login to your preferred payment gateway, Authorize.net or NMI, in your Welcome Email. You can then integrate your Soar Payments merchant account directly into WooCommerce, using the payment gateway login that send to you in your Welcome Email, via the relevant “premium” payment gateway extension from WooCommerce.

  • NMI (Network Merchants Inc): Use the Network Merchants Payment Gateway for WooCommerce plugin and complete the following setup process: (1) Install and activate the plugin. (2) Navigate to WooCommerce -> Settings -> Checkout -> Network Merchants (NMI) Payment Gateway. (3) Provide the gateway username and password provided to you by Soar Payments, as well as credit cards you want to accept.
  • Authorize.net: Use the Authorize.net Payment Gateway For WooCommerce plugin and complete the following setup process: (1) Install and activate the plugin. (2) Navigate to WooCommerce -> Settings -> Checkout -> Authorize.net Payment Gateway. (3) Enter the API details (Login ID, Transaction Key), and configure the other elements as desired (Title, Description, Transaction Success Message, Transaction Failure Message, etc.)
