|Service Update 23/11/2020 |
Unexpectedly, we have been forced to make some changes in relation to the way we take payments on store that we would like to explain.
Unfortunately, Pay-Pal this morning decided that our products are no longer suitable under “Pay-Pals acceptable use policy”. No warning, just immediately banned, all because we sell vaping associated products. The same products we have for the past 9 years using solely Pay-Pal and that are regulated by MRHA.
As you can imagine, it baffled us first thing on a Monday morning and there was some serious head scratching going on from The Alchemist, but he poured another coffee, filled his tank and set about getting another payment option back on store.
No Pay-Pal – No Problem!!!!
We now take all payments through either VivaWallet or ApplePay
Viva Wallet –
Viva Wallet is the first European entirely cloud-based neobank using Microsoft Azure with branches in 23 countries in Europe.
Viva Wallet is a Principal Member of Visa and Master Card for acquiring and issuing services.
Viva Wallet provides businesses of all sizes card acceptance services through innovative Smart Android terminals or the new Android Viva Wallet POS app, and through advanced payment gateways in online stores. It also offers business accounts with local IBAN and a business Viva Wallet Mastercard card.

When you’re making purchases on the web in Safari on your iPhone, iPad or Mac, you can use Apple Pay without having to create an account, enter card details or fill out lengthy forms. Millions of merchants accept Apple Pay online. And with Touch ID on MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, paying takes just a touch and is quicker, easier and more secure than ever before.
