Male Enhancement Merchant Accounts
Male enhancement products give men the chance to improve their endowment by using a particular product, usually a natural supplement. Male enhancement nutraceuticals come in a variety of forms that include pills, creams, ointments and oils intended to increase sexual stamina, libido, penis size and erection. While the efficacy of these products varies from merchant to merchant, one thing all male enhancement product merchants have in common is their inability to obtain low-rate male enhancement credit card processing services with traditional banks.
Why Do Male Enhancement Products Make a Merchant High-Risk?
While there are several factors involved in earning the “high-risk” designation from traditional banks and payment processing companies, in the case of male enhancement merchants it really comes down to two major factors: high chargeback ratios and fraud risk.
Chargebacks Related to the Efficacy of the Product
Unfortunately, the efficacy of male enhancement products is reasonably subjective. A man using these products may be expecting miracles, and unfortunately, that’s usually not how these products work. Disappointed customers such as these who may be unable to receive a refund from the merchant will often request a chargeback from their credit card issuer so as not to be out any money.
On the other side of things, there are some merchants who do promise miracles with their male enhancement nutraceuticals. And in some of these cases, the product may not show any results at all. This is another case where the customer is likely to request a chargeback with their credit card issuer.
Male enhancement products, similar to any nutraceutical, often require continual use that follows a specific set of instructions. In cases where the customer may miss a dose or application, the efficacy of the product is negatively affected. Again, this is a scenario where some customers may choose to request a chargeback, as they’re not seeing the desired effect of the product.
Chargebacks and Fraud Related to the Stigma that Surrounds the Use of Male Enhancement Nutraceuticals
Male enhancement is a touchy subject, and as such, many males don’t like to admit to the use of male enhancement products. It’s not uncommon for a man to order these products and quickly dispute the charge when it appears on their credit card bill – particularly if their partner or spouse questions them about the purchase. Chargebacks like these are unwarranted and are considered fraud by banks, payment processors, and law enforcement.
The stigma that surrounds the use of male enhancement nutraceuticals also leaves the industry vulnerable to fraudulent transactions using stolen credit cards and identities.
