Finding an offshore CBD payment processor can be complicated in the event that you don’t realize where to begin.
CBD oil solutions are viewed as high risk in the online merchant account world because of the nature of how the oil is produced; this sends the banks and moneylenders an immediate warning and your offshore CBD oil merchant account is considered as a high risk right from the get-go. This doesn’t mean you’re in a tight spot with regards to eCommerce and payment processing online (otherwise called card-not-present transactions), it just implies that you have to pick the correct offshore CBD payment processor to deal with every one of your requirements for CBD merchant processing.

Below are the initial startup fees for companies with no prior processing.
Underwriting Fee: $800
*****For start-ups only for the cost of the EU corp. If a merchant can’t provide previous processing showing a minimum of 20k a month they are required to pay for the setup of their EU corp.
We will provide the wire instructions.
For all merchants, please submit the pre-qualification form fully filled out, along with the last 3 months of processing statements if they don’t have 3 months processing, please provide the reason and 3 months of bank statements (business or personal) showing a balance of $5,000 or greater for those 3 months. Offshore CBD payment processor will need to see a working website.
If the website is not available to the public, please send us a website username and password so our underwriting is able to review the site. The “Supplemental Web Compliance” sheet should be sent to the merchant along with the pre-qual application. This will give the merchant an idea of what they can and cannot have on their website.
Once the merchant has been pre-approved, we will need the Full Application Package filled out and sent back within 3 weeks, otherwise, we will need a new bank and/or processing statement in the new month.
All documents in the New Merchant package need to be submitted to us before the merchant goes into full website compliance and before the EU Corp is filed. If only partial documents are submitted, we may need to request updated proof of address and bank statements since those are time sensitive when filing for the EU Corp.
After All, Documents Have Been Submitted:
Once all the documents have been received by underwriting, underwriting will email you the merchant terms. The terms need to be signed and initialed by the merchant and sent back to us before underwriting will begin website compliance. Once merchant terms have been received, the website will go through the “In-House Compliance” phase.
Underwriting will go through every detail on the website and notify you of any changes the merchant needs to make in order to comply with Visa/MasterCard, FDA, and our policies. If the merchant does not want to comply and make the necessary changes, their application will be denied.
Before we start the website compliance our head of Underwriting, head of sales and head of customer service will complete a conference call with the merchant to go over the process with the merchant and answer any questions they may have.

ANY CHANGES/UPDATE ON THE WEBSITE THEY NEED TO SUBMIT FOR OUR APPROVAL BEFORE ADDING ON THEIR WEBSITE.
The reason why we ask for updates prior to adding them on the website is risk and security, and to avoid payment processing interruptions. These non-approved changes can cause fines from Visa and MasterCard which is why we are so strict about it. It is on yours and our very own best interest to comply with FDA regulations and Payments policy and guidelines.
Each Merchant has a 10% rolling reserve for 180 days after which the funds are released back to you on the 181st day and so forth.
We can submit a request to lower the reserve after 3 months of consistent processing.
To have a daily payout, you will need to process more than 40K monthly.
If you process less than 40K monthly, you will receive your deposit every Wednesday (10 days in arrears)
There is an initial 10 BUSINESS day delay and daily thereafter. Meaning on the 11th business day you will receive your deposit from the very first day you processed and on the 12th business day you will receive your deposit from the second day you processed and so forth.
Remember, you will get paid on time if you have consistent processing, this is what we are looking
4-5k per week
3kto 3,500 daily
If you process $100,000 in one month and on the other month you drop your process to$20,000, your payout will drop too. CONSISTENCY is the key to have a CONSISTENT payout.
If the merchant stops processing and fails to fulfill the items the customers ordered, a chargeback can be initiated by the customer for up to 6 months.
Before you reach your monthly limit we will receive an email, we don’t cap our accounts,
If you have been processing consistently and without any issue, your monthly volume limit will be increased. However, please let us know on the application the “real” amount a merchant would like to be approved for after the first 2-3 months of processing. Having a real processing volume amount allows us to better understand the merchant.
