Our focus is on helping businesses considered “too high-risk” by most standard merchant service providers – like Stripe and PayPal.

Sell online coaching services while using Shopify
Using the biggest and most popular e-commerce software, shopping carts, and platforms is rarely straightforward when you’re selling high-risk products or running a business that uses a high-risk business model. However, with our help, thousands of high-risk merchants have easily used big-name brands like Wix, Shopify, WooCommerce, and more with ease.
Shopify is one of the most popular names in the all-in-one e-commerce platform space. However, their business model is to focus on reaching as many entrepreneurs and businesses as possible. As a result, even though their e-commerce software capabilities and features are exceptional, their broad approach makes it more tricky for specialized industries to use Shopify.
The good news is that at E-Commerce 4 IM, we can quickly provide you with the high-risk merchant services you need to accept coaching payments online.
We can help set up and integrate your online coaching Shopify store with a high-risk merchant account and payment gateway.
Why do online coaches need high-risk merchant services in the first place?
If you’re new to selling online coaching, you might be wondering why you’re facing so many obstacles in getting merchant services in place. We’ve already touched on the fact that you need high-risk credit card processing to accept payments. There are many reasons why a business might need specialized processing. It can be due to age-restricted products, relatively high chargeback rates, recurring billing, high-ticket item sales, just to mention a few of the variables that come into play when evaluating whether any individual business falls within the “high-risk” category.
How to accept payments when your business is “high-risk”
When you’re selling online coaching on Shopify, you’re generally seen as a high-risk business due to the potential for high chargeback rates. However, depending on your business model and coaching costs, other factors can come into play.
Regardless of why your business is seen as high-risk, the result is the same. Most merchant service providers are either unable or unwilling to offer their services. Most of the time, it’s because their business is entirely focused on meeting the needs of as many customers as possible. Unfortunately, this results in fewer options for you who sell online coaching. Luckily, however, we’re happy to say that you still have options.
At E-Commerce 4 IM, we can help you accept payments for your online coaching services when you’re using Shopify. We’ll integrate your shopping cart and e-commerce platform with the high-risk merchant account and payment gateway you need to sell safely and reliably.
Protect your business against unnecessary chargebacks
Did you know, we also provide chargeback mitigation software? As an online coaching provider using Shopify, the systems are in place for you to scale and sell quickly. However, no matter how good your coaching program is, any progress for the buyer depends on their commitment and willingness to learn. As a result, you might experience higher-than-expected chargeback rates.
Luckily, with the right chargeback mitigation system in place, you can minimize the likelihood of chargebacks in the first place. Our chargeback mitigation program allows you to receive near-real-time notifications so that you can take proactive steps to eliminate many chargebacks before they occur.
