South Portland, ME (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
Although local alcohol sales from wineries, micro-breweries, and craft distilleries have flourished for hundreds if not thousands of years, direct shipping to consumers – particularly online sales across state lines – has proven to be a source of conflict between some e-commerce service providers and aspiring online vendors. However, Tasker Payment Gateways LLC seeks to assure such businesses that not only are such strategic partnerships possible, but they are now available through Tasker Payment Gateways’ extensive network of industry contacts.
Currently, online alcohol vendors are not accepted as customers by all ecommerce gateways and service providers. Due to the adult nature of the product, the complexity of state laws regarding direct shipping, and the industry's historic concern with potential chargebacks, these vendors are often seen as “high-risk,” and are thus denied services by those who wish to mitigate their chance for loss, or even avoid the extra work involved with understanding the online alcohol industry.
However other businesses, such as many with whom Tasker has forged a relationship, believe otherwise. Such organizations, including the essential payment gateway, chargeback mitigation and ecommerce payment service providers, have taken an individualized approach to evaluating new clients, which involves examining the business' unique structure and operations instead of the history of the vertical as a whole.
Tasker Payment Gateways serves as a consultant to help businesses take the first step toward building their online storefronts. It specializes in reselling payment gateways, such as NMI, eProcessing Network and others, and has now taken active steps to extend these services toward online alcohol vendors. A new resource outlining many of the necessary steps to becoming an online wine, beer, or spirits vendor is also available on Tasker Payment Gateway's website for the first time.
Tasker believes that this new resource, combined with an appropriate payment gateway and additional consulting services provided by his company that can help vendors select a compatible merchant provider and shopping cart, can significantly help spirits vendors who are often overwhelmed by their options and open up vast new opportunities for growth in an industry traditionally shackled by geographic boundaries.
