seed banks that accept credit cards

In some cases a credit card issuer will decline a credit card transaction. This has to do with security reasons of the credit card issuer. For example, when the payment doesn’t fit in your normal payment pattern.

The biggest credit card companies like Visa, MasterCard and American Express are American and use financial networks that fall under US jurisdiction which, believe it or not, still thinks cannabis seeds are a class A drug. It’s therefore not surprising that companies like Visa and Mastercard don’t want to be at the forefront of legalization. Even when it comes to cannabis seeds which are obviously not a drug.

Fortunately there are still webshops where you can buy cannabis seeds with your credit card. This also applies to our online store.

Is there a charge for the credit card transaction?

There’s gotta be an American company taking credit cards, how hard can it be to set up some phony companies to run credit cards through.

DC seed exchange doesn’t either, that’s the only way I’m buying beans, been doing it that way for 15 years.

Went to place an order at James bean and they don’t take credit cards anymore.

Cannabis businesses of any sort in the US are considered by credit card companies (and many banks) to be "high risk" as their accounts and assets can be frozen and stolen by the feds just for sneezing in the DEA’s general direction. For this reason, most seed banks are finding they have to revert back to being "cash or blank money order" only. Like @xtsho said, the only way to accept credit right now is to have a separate, non-cannabis business that you process credit cards through (which violates your agreement with the credit card processing institution) or by using an overseas credit card processor (sketchy at best).
