Recently I'm planning to develop a website where to sell sex toys, and I have contacted Shopify (Australia's Ecommerce Software Solution | Shopping Cart Software - Shopify Australia) to asked about do they allow this kind of contents. What they told me is I'm ok to sell sex toys with them but the only concern is about the payment gateway. So do you guys have any experiences about paypal , google wallet , or other payment services with some products which labelled as "high risk" ?
Here is the reply from shopify :
Shopify as a platform places no restrictions on the type of products that you sell, so from our side, you'll be alright! As long as it's legal where you are, we have no issue.
The only issues you might run into are with the payment gateway that you choose - this is considered sensitive or 'high-risk' material, so there are some gateways which would not allow you to process transactions for them.
