We believe that we are the only company that can offer this service on a fully disclosed basis.

In response to the needs of medical marijuana patients who require the additional care of home delivery, 420 Card Processing now supports wireless credit card processing devices for medical marijuana dispensaries. Delivery personnel can now accept credit cards using a wireless terminal or an iPhone. “We believe that we are the only company that can offer this service on a fully disclosed basis.” said Nick Emerson, Managing Director. He continued, “No other processor can offer this as a legitimate option since regular banks won’t underwrite the risk. We made our arrangements with a specialty bank. While the cost is higher than our regular processing, we thought it was extremely important to be able to offer this service.”
The most afflicted patients no longer need to travel to a dispensary location to use a credit card to obtain relief. Delivery personnel can now swipe cards right at a patient’s home. In addition to easing the burden for patients, the new processing capabilities help to protect delivery personnel from crime. Medical marijuana delivery drivers are tempting targets since they carry both cash and an expensive product.
