Listen to your Software Provider
As we build web sites for our clients. We strongly recommend they avoid making product claims and place the official FDA Disclaimer on each page promoting their products.
We are pointing clients to CBD-friendly credit card processors and warning them not to take the word of the agent or ISO as gospel. That they need to work directly with the processor and underwriting bank and to get everything in writing. If they don’t, it will come back to haunt them.
We also strongly suggest that, if they don’t retain one, they at least talk to an attorney about selling CBD. Even though they will warn, scare and leave you in doubt, before moving forward, it’s still a good idea to hear the pros and cons of diving into such an endeavor. Remember, everyone told Columbus he was a fool, but he still sailed into history.
Finally, listen to and follow-through on your software providers suggestions, knowledge and years of experience. Unlike product vendors, suppliers and even employees, your software provider has years of experience and typically touches every aspect of a Direct Sales companies business. From inventory to Distributors, commissions to replicated web sites and social media, your software provider will integrate with every aspect of your business and has done so with hundreds before you. Their reputation and even their own survival are on the line too. So, listen to them and take their advice when and where you can. After all, you can always verify what they are saying with an attorney… at a mere $350 an hour.
