    If you are based and operated in the UK (i.e. not just registered office), comply with the legal requirements for operating in the UK and the requirements of the merchant service provider then you should be able to find a provider that specialises in vaping, CBD etc no problem.

    The companies concerned were.
    Does not in any way stop a mob who are convinced the business should pay more. Based on bad maths or simply Daily Mail etc articles.

    Fortnum & Mason was unusual in that it was a different company around the corner the mob had a problem with.

    British, no doubt about it. I make that initial remark as the paymerchants are US companies. Some of them have no clue about sole traders and claim they are always registered with companies house and hmrc for vat purposes, which is such a massive lie, it dwarfs the size of the sun. Apologies if anything comes across as signals of irritation. I am steaming livid about it all.

    Not sure what planet you are on. Address information has been on the website for over 3 weeks!. Look abit harder. As for website being basic, FO springs to mind.

    Yes, US firms often don't understand non-US business.
    Have had them demand what bankruptcy attorney I used when my company became insolvent. Here bankruptcy is personal, not company and doesn't need an attorney. There it does and applies to companies (such as Hertz).

    Cannot get through to some people that non-US stuff is different.

    There are some idiotic clowns on this forum who serve no purpose other than to criticise and not suggest. I thought this forum was for businesses seeking help, advice etc.. not for snowflakes who whine and whinge about what a website looks like, cannot read and clearly have idea themselves.
    Agree on that. What part of 'UK rules/laws' do they not understand? I mean, English is what they speak isn't it?. Even tried with an EU (puke) pay merchant and they are wanting the same and despite proving the law/rules in regard to sole traders/LTD companies etc... they still kept asking for it. As bad as some who cannot even read information correctly on my own website.

    Never had a problem with payment merchants myself. As for the market idea, don’t dismiss it, very good money can be made, customer loyalty gained etc from markets. I have done internet trading, shops, markets, the lot. I would trade from a market first everytime, since it is by far the most profitable.

    To dismiss it as Del Boy type image shows your lack of knowledge, a good market can easily make more than £1k a day in profit, not turnover, profit from a single stall. Which when you have stock you cannot sell seems a good option to myself.

    Then again, I’m not a moaning snowflake.

    True.
    A good market stall is a way of selling. Not for everyone and certainly harder now than it was - but still viable.

    We don't do market stalls regularly any more, we still do local events occasionally because can outsell online considerably - and summer events are about to get started.
    Table / stall between us and customers, nice and easy for keeping separation.

    Well I am sorry if the address was there, but after a search i could not find it, so presumably neither could most buyers, so hardly likely to inspire confidence on the intergity of the company

    A quick check and you don't appear to be a listed company at that address. If you are a sole trader this may be another reason why you were refused.

    My wife (who does risk management) said you need to check with Experian and other credit checkers that they know about you and your address. You also need to give a reason why you use a virtual office. Another problem my be a lack of details on the source of your products, and a lack of age checking when you land on the site.

    If you tick all the boxes you will get approved. You just need to make sure everything is squeeky clean

    Paypal fails at the point of sale. It does not work at all. Support is... well.... plenty of reviews on paypal. Stripe do not accept high risk - tried them.

    This is one of the issues I explained to them. Explained I have a virtual office because I don't need my home address accessible to everyone. Plenty of nutters out there. Never have been asked about my source of products which are UK sourced. Can't be credit score as mine is extremely high. Thanks be to your good lady, she is correct. Age checking, apart from age verification when entering the website and checking the order details for anything suspicious, what else could I do?. I have the same setup as other online vape stores for age verification.
