Adult Angels in the High Risk Merchant Industry
ADULT ANGELS IN THE HIGH RISK MERCHANT INDUSTRY
by Gerri Bryce
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where, in a certain desire to buy a product online that you can't find, you felt the urge to fill up the niche and sell that product yourself? Many high risk merchants profess that the reason why they sell, for example, adult products online is because they can relate well to this type of business. Often, if they suffer from a sexual relationship without spice, or wanted to relive the good ol' days when sex with their spouse keeps them going home each night. Others would try to salvage tepid sex routines before the bedroom gets cold.
So looking at this side of the coin, we can only sympathize at adult merchants who get constantly bombarded with criticism especially by the moralistic crowd. Of course, selling pornography for perversion or pornography's sake is another story. The adult merchants I'm referring to, are alas, the “angels of the sex industry”. Their aim is to keep the heat between couples going. Their desire is to target this “love” market where there is certainly a huge consumer base. They may be selling sex toys, adult books and magazines, erotic lingerie, adult movies, or adult pharmaceuticals that help in sexual stimulation such as gels, Viagra, or massage creams. They fill up the niche that consumers with needs for sexual enhancement are certainly grateful for.
The great thing about this adult merchant business is that it has become easier for couples to buy what they want – thanks to the Internet revolution. You do not need a brick and mortar store to stand by your online adult shop. Instead a warehouse, shipping, and other infrastructure for product inventory and delivery is all you need. You would also need, of course, a reliable credit card processor. If you cater to high volume credit card processing, you must likely have applied for a high risk merchant account offshore too. Consumers are confident that you can fulfill orders in time, with as little mistake on payment processing as possible, if your infrastructure is carefully built. It also pays if you have a well designed and fast loading website that shows your product catalog in detail, easy to navigate, and with an impressively simple shopping cart. There is no shortage to the variety of products you can sell for your adult target market. And neither is there for ways to deliver what these sex stimulation deprived couples need.
Yes, being an angel in the sex industry is definitely not the easiest job in the world. Sure you can relate well to what you sell, and you can also feel a certain degree of satisfaction knowing you can provide what couples need to make sex more exciting. But face the fact that you may also be challenged by chargebacks, complaints, or product returns. No adult business is perfect. With a good high risk merchant account provider to support you, things are easier on your back.
