CCNow Prohibited Products

Revised and Effective as of June 3, 2015

CCNow was initially intended for the sale of tangible merchandise and hard goods, but digital goods, services, and other non-tangible products can be accepted in some cases with prior approval. Tangible merchandise is defined as "physical products that are shipped to the Online Shopper's physical address". Some products are restricted on CCNow, and require a risk assessment.

Your products must be legal for sale in all states, provinces, and countries where you accept Online Shoppers.
