New York, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
In response to the recent decisions by major credit card processors to terminate services to the medical marijuana industry, 420 Card Processing, is pleased to announce that its dedicated team will be available to convert merchants to our platform to insure uninterrupted service. 420 Card Processing, a leading provider of merchant card services to the medical marijuana industry, is comprised of experienced payment processing professionals who feel strongly about merchant equality and opportunity.
As recently reported by Thompson Reuters, “U.S. medical-marijuana shops struggle to find bankers”. Many medical marijuana industry participants, including prescribing physicians, have received notification that their credit card processing privileges will be suspended in early July. 420 Card Processing offers a stable affordable solution and has expanded its team to efficiently convert merchant accounts affected by this difficult situation.
"In designing our program we were careful to stay true to the character of our clients and to not just offer a service for a fee. Our merchants register as medical marijuana establishments and do not hide behind other industry designations to avoid discovery," a company spokesman said. 420 Card Processing offers competitive rates, 24/7 US-based technical support and peace of mind.
"We are acutely aware of the challenges facing the industry today as it works to serve people in need and to be accepted as a legitimate type of business. In light of this, we pledge to donate ten percent of profits to organizations engaged in advocacy for access to medical marijuana" said Business Development Manager Electra Weeks. "In these times, we don't feel that it is enough to offer this service solely to profit from clients. Companies should be willing to take a stand and support their position, and small businesses, with real dollars."
