Performance Card Service (PCS) has years of experience working with companies in the body building supplements field. For those that sell peptides, payment processing is a difficult problem. PCS helps your business be able to accept various forms of payment and enable your sales to grow.
The consumer interest in body building supplements has surged over the past decade. What were once the classic GNC-type protein shakes and powders are now a new breed of supplements. Not all these products you find online are legal, so we implore you to do your research before attempting to start a business or purchase these products for personal use. Performance Card Service supports only merchants that sell legal products, so we recommend ensuring each product you offer is legal before contacting one of our experts.
The two most popular classes of body building supplements found online are SARMs and peptides.
Selective androgen receptor modulators, or SARMs, are a class of androgen receptor ligands. They are intended to have the same effects as androgenic drugs but are more selective in their actions. This allows them to be utilized for more uses than the relatively limited legitimate uses of anabolic steroids. Since most SARMs are taken orally rather than injected, they have become much more popular with body builders over the years. SARMs merchants need to be sure they are working with legit and trustworthy partners to ensure their money is safe and, more importantly, their product is safe for consumers.
Peptides are considered amino acid monomers, which are linked by a peptide bond. The body uses these short acid chains to produce a growth hormone that is already in our body but is just not being released. This is a great thing for those who can’t produce that growth hormone naturally on their own. However, peptides can be deemed even more high risk than SARMs. To avoid legal trouble, merchants need to be very careful regarding which products they offer. Wholesalers that deal in these products are often based in Asia and can sometimes lack the legitimacy a merchant is seeking. Since many banks and processors consider this a prohibited business type, obtaining a peptides merchant account can be a challenge. We recommend a merchant does extensive research on any provider it is considering signing with to help avoid loss of funds.
