Cannabis Industry

Compliant, Safe, and Reliable

Payment processing solutions and integrations

When you work in the cannabis industry, we understand that finding a compliant and legal way to accept payments can be difficult. When it comes to handling money, transactions, and banking, it is still vague, and there is a lack of understanding about what is legal and what is not within the industry. Because of these limitations, you will need a quality merchant services provider to help you receive money easily and legally to provide for your customers.

“Very Satisfied”

5 / 5

Having just set up our account, I found the help and service exceptional. One often hears of the uncaring bank personal that hides behind voice mail and seldom returns calls, our experience was the opposite. Start to finish 4 days from when I talked with Andy to arrange credit card processing to everything from Southwest Merchant Services being set up. Very satisfied.
