Q: What are the most important trends in cannabis payment processing?
The shift towards digital and contactless payment is one of our biggest trends. More customers are opting to use contactless payment options due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This trend is expected to continue even after it ends. In response to customers’ changing preferences, merchants are increasingly using digital wallets and other payment options.
Q: How will cannabis payments processing evolve in the future?
We believe technology will continue to improve cannabis payment processing and that consumers’ preferences will change. We anticipate more innovation in the field of digital payments with the adoption blockchain technology and other decentralized systems. We expect to see more collaboration among payment processors, banks, as well as other financial institutions, to provide better services for cannabis industry.
Q: What are some of industry’s challenges and how can they best be solved?
Among the problems facing the industry are regulatory uncertainty, a lack of access banking services and the stigma attached to cannabis.
