Like many products in the nutraceutical category, the purported beneficial effects of CBD oils have not been approved or validated by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). With little or no peer-reviewed research currently available to evaluate the benefits of CBD use, the flood gates have been opened for businesses to tout CBD as a potential cure for… well, just about anything.

A CBD merchant account is a merchant account that has been specifically approved for use in selling some or all types of CBD products. CBD businesses are considered very high-risk, so most of the popular merchant account providers (and even many high-risk specialists) will not accept merchants selling these products.

As with Square’s extremely popular services for low-risk businesses, the company fully discloses all prices on its website. This transparency allows you to make a reasonably accurate estimate of what it will cost you on a monthly basis to use its services.

Shopify Payments is not available to hemp or CBD merchants at this time.

Hemp-derived CBD transactions are vetted more carefully by third-party payment gateways than other transactions, so the application and approval process might be more involved than usual. Third-party payment gateways take into account many factors in approving payments and rates for shops selling CBD products, including product type, whether the business was recently created, transaction history, volume, product mix, and others. Approvals are at the discretion of each third-party payment gateway, and Shopify can’t guarantee the approval of your shop.

This list may not be exhaustive, and may change over time.

Laws in the United States surrounding hemp and hemp-derived products are changing, so you should consult with legal counsel before you sell these products on Shopify. Shopify can’t provide legal advice on what and where you can sell.

I was removed from Shopify Payments, can I still use Shopify to sell hemp or CBD?

For example, in the attestation merchants must confirm that none of their hemp or hemp-derived products are marketed as having any medicinal or therapeutic benefit, unless such claims have been approved by the FDA. Merchants are responsible for ensuring that their store remains compliant with all requirements of the attestation.

Merchants using Shopify Plus can contact the Merchant Success team for guidance and dedicated support in completing the steps required to sell hemp or hemp-derived CBD products on Shopify.

In Canada, merchants that want to sell CBD must be licensed cannabis sellers, and are required to use Shopify Plus. Merchants in all other jurisdictions must continue to comply with Shopify’s Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy, which includes ensuring that the merchant is selling products in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
