Can I sell and/or buy cannabis on the howhigh website?
At this time, selling and buying cannabis is not allowed on the howhigh marketplace.

Why should I list my items for sale in the howhigh marketplace as opposed to other marketplaces and retailers?
Aside from free listings and zero monthly fees, vendors benefit by selling in the howhigh marketplace because it offers cannabis-related products and services only. This is advantageous for you as a seller because your products do not get lost among listings for similar items in unrelated product categories, like housewares or kitchen and dining, for example. Likewise, buyers do not have to sift through thousands of products that are unrelated to cannabis, making it an optimal shopping experience.

Free product listings, zero monthly fees, and low transaction fees means that you get to keep more revenue in your pocket.

Which payment providers does howhigh use?
Enjoy processing secure transactions with Stripe and Paypal! With Stripe and Paypal, buyers can make purchases using their bank account, various branded cards like Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and many others. Sellers can choose to accept payments made via Stripe, Paypal, or both. Sellers do not have to accept online payments and may choose to sell their products and services to local buyers only and collect payments in person.

What are howhigh's seller fees?
Cheaper than Amazon, eBay, and Etsy! Sellers pay a transaction fee of 6% or $0.25 of the purchase price after shipping, whichever is greater. The transaction fee applies only to transactions made using the online payment function. Currently, there are no listing fees and zero monthly fees, which means that you can sell 1 product or 1,000 products without being charged extra. Transaction fees are non-refundable.
