Background on Our Service

With the difficulty many marijuana dispensaries and merchants have faced in finding secure payment processing solutions, the cannabis industry has often had to turn to alternative means of advertising their products. This has led to the creation of numerous fake websites, fake businesses, and the fabrication of vague details regarding cannabis products in order to secure payment solutions that are reliable for both the buyer and the merchant.

In some cases, merchants have had to rely on unsecure means of transacting payments, including decisions to resort to accepting only cash transactions, which limits options for both vendors and buyers and cannot ensure the safety and security of the transaction. Merchants within the cannabis industry are often if not always considered “high risk” by most banks, which leaves vendors with limited options.

While there are some credit card processing services for marijuana that do exist online, not all marijuana merchant accounts can offer the ideal reliability and security that is needed. In addition, those that are willing to take on the risk of a merchant within the cannabis industry may offer unappealing terms and conditions or otherwise offer staggering rates that can negatively impact your business’s budget.
