N utraceuticals are otherwise known as, or even advertised as, cure-alls. “Get super lean or increase your brain function with natural products – better results than pharmaceuticals.” It sounds too good to be true; some companies use illegitimate marketing tactics that have spoiled the industry for honest nutraceutical companies who genuinely want to offer people natural alternatives. As a result, the FTC has strict guidelines for companies selling products that do not work as advertised.
It’s common for companies to market their product as the best in the world, a product that could change your life! And that means that nutraceuticals fall into a gray area. You have to be aware of your nutraceutical marketing ideas so you are not breaking any rules the FTC has set.

Why the Nutraceuticals Industry Is High Risk
The nutraceuticals industry is projected to be worth $300 billion by 2021, but even so, these businesses are considered high-risk by the banks.
It’s a simple case of a few bad apples spoiling the bunch. Some nutraceutical companies are amazing! They provide quality products that work as advertised. But there are many other nutra companies that offer terrible products and make impossible claims. Companies promise the world and when they don’t deliver, their customers want their money back, hence chargebacks. That’s one of the most common reasons companies are considered high risk.
But there are also subscription-based nutraceutical companies that will receive chargebacks because customers forget they were being billed monthly. This is not the company’s fault, of course, but inevitably, chargebacks will occur.
Finally, some nutraceutical customer accounts are created using fraudulent credit cards. That’s why it is important to have a company like First Card Payments guide you through the tricks of the trade to mitigate these types of situations. We have a full suite of chargeback prevention tips and solutions available to our clients. Our team also has the experience, expertise, and techniques used in the industry to keep those inevitable chargebacks low and even prevent them from occurring.
We are your partner in providing a nutraceutical merchant account that lasts.
Besides chargeback mitigation programs, there are other basic techniques to avoid chargebacks in your nutraceutical business. Excellent customer service, following through with timely emails as well as options for customer refunds are ways to prevent chargebacks. For example, the Customer Service Department can ask customers about their level of satisfaction; this way customers that are not satisfied with their purchase can not only feel heard and valued, but a refund can be issued before it escalates to a chargeback. In the nutraceutical industry, like it or not, refunds are just part of doing business.
