The nutraceuticals market has seen a huge surge in popularity with global consumers seeking preventative measures and alternatives to improving health and well-being. More and more customers turn to nutraceuticals to help treat a range of conditions.

Nutraceuticals describe any product manufactured from a natural or synthetic food source that could possibly deliver extra health benefits, in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foods. It also covers vitamins and minerals, and dietary products and programs. Since this market is unregulated in the US and attracts a high level of chargebacks, we know that many financial service providers won’t work with you, and finding a nutraceutical merchant account provider willing to accept credit cards for your online business is likely to be a challenge.

Since the US does not have stringent government regulations governing nutraceuticals like many other countries, this leads to issues when selling to customers in countries that do have strict health regulations in place. 

As a result, it places businesses selling these items in the high-risk category, and many processors in the US will refuse to offer nutraceutical credit card processing for four reasons, which result in increased chargebacks:

  1. Potential false claims and increased risk of fraud because the ingredients and their effects are not substantiated by an official regulatory body
  2. Problems caused by the way buyers pay, i.e. free trials, and then unwanted recurring credit card subscriptions when the free period is over
  3. Lack of understanding around the regulations and restrictions of nutraceutical products in different regions and countries
  4. Inaccurate shipping information resulting in re-shipments or missing goods
