Selling CBD products- How can I connect a third-party payment processor?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.luxandleaf.com/

Hello everyone! I have a question regarding selling CBD products in Squarespace.

So I created a website for a client who sells skincare beauty products that contain CBD oil (https://www.luxandleaf.com/). However, I wasn't able to connect Stripe or Paypal because they do not allow transactions that are for CBD.  I'm looking into third-party payment processors like Foxy.io (https://www.foxy.io/squarespace) Does anyone have experience with them? and how it works? or any other suggestions?!

They offer very flexible services, but bear in mind the additional costs. Unless you subscribe to the $250 per month plan, you'll pay another $20 per month on top of your Squarespace fees, plus another 15c per transaction on top of the payment processor fees.

I would recommend less popular payment systems, such as Fondy, for example. I can't really say if they allow this kind of payments, though. And there is a lot of payment system which allows making transactions in crypto. One of my friends lives in Eastern Europe, and he buys weed using crypto because weed is forbidden in his country. Did you think about something like that, OP? BTW, I buy CBD online, directly from manufacturer. My favorite product is gummies. The question is: why don't you sell these products directly?

Hello, 

I am in the same predicament as the user in this post. I see that he suggested the one processor but I was wondering if you had any others that will also work for the same solution and will also allow embedding into the square space. 

I was also curious to get your opinion on how much effort is required to connect one of these third party processors and if you can actually fully integrate it with the square space orders.

To be clear, you cannot connect any third party processors to Squarespace Commerce. This means that nothing can be integrated with Orders, Inventory, the Cart or the Checkout. The only way to use a third party processor is to use it in isolation of the Squarespace features or use a payments system built into another eCommerce system.

Examples include SendOwl, Shopify, Foxy.io and so on. If it helps, I have written guides that explain how to use SendOwl with Squarespace, or how to use Shopify Buy Buttons to take advantage of the many payment services available in Shopify:

Has anyone done this successfully ? I'd love to see a working site selling something using a third party payment option - I'm afraid the extra step will push customers away.

I was completely ignorant as to how much of an issue this is for my CBD business.

I got a quote today of €850 setup fee, €100 per month plus 4%+€.3 per transaction from a payment provider !
