How to Accept Card Payments at Marijuana Dispensary Business

Do you have a MMJ business but cannot accept card payments at marijuana dispensary? We understand about the problems faced by completely legal businesses, such as marijuana dispensaries when it comes to dealing with financial institutions for purposes such as processing credit card payments.

Processing Card Payments for Cannabis Businesses

When banks and other financial institutions are considering how to deal with businesses, they look at a number of factors, including the industry that the business is in, and the potential risk that there is to their investments. Unfortunately, the world of CBD, marijuana and hemp is still legally, a young business, with a taboo attached, and often misunderstood, and because of this, businesses such as marijuana dispensaries are often labelled as ‘high risk’.

One of the consequences of a ‘high risk’ label is that merchant account facilities are not offered to these businesses, meaning that it is impossible to accept card payments at marijuana dispensary business – or any other company within the same industry. The marijuana and CBD industry is fast growing and with increasing amounts of money and time being spent on the medicinal properties of cannabis in particular, we are not only seeing more and more health benefits to the cannabis plant, we are seeing an industry which is growing steadily and looking set to grow even more.
