FRESH MEADOWS, N.Y., Jan. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinpoint Intelligence, a processing partner to eCig and vapor businesses, announces its membership in the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA). SFATA is a nonprofit advocacy group that works in the best interests of its members, while also promoting a positive public image for vapor products. It seeks to be an educator on behalf of the industry. SFATA also upholds excellence in the industry, related to quality and reliability of the product. Joining this group reiterates Pinpoint's commitment to helping the smoke-free alternative industry stay protected on every transaction.
As a leader in high risk merchant accounts, Pinpoint is an ideal solution for retailers that have unique requirements for sales and underwriting. Pinpoint currently helps the eCig and vapor industry process payments via ecommerce, traditional retail, and wholesale transactions. They are focused on delivering exceptional service and support to the industry, which unfortunately gets relegated to minimal payment processor options. Many in the industry are forced to use platforms like Stripe or PayPal, which deem these businesses prohibited, leading to closed accounts and held revenue. Pinpoint's expertise in high-risk industries makes them well suited to handle credit card processing for a number of smoke-free alternative businesses, including eLiquids, eCigs and vaping. Receiving fair and proper service should be the expectation of every retailer in the industry.
Because Pinpoint believes this industry deserves excellent service and protection against payment risks, it was important that they join SFATA. Their membership will stand to further relationships with the eCig and vaping community to raise awareness and educate on proper online payment processing. As a regular attendee of vapor and eCig trade shows and meetings, Pinpoint deems it important to remain current on issues impacting the industry.
Nicholas Ruggieri, Co-Founder and Chief Sales Officer, said, "Pinpoint is excited to be a part of the SFATA. We want the vapor and smoke-free industry to know we have their back when it comes to payment processing. While many traditional financial institutions won't service the industry, we're committed to it and supporting those businesses grow with less risk. We care about who our clients are and how we can help them be successful."
