What Is The ‘2023 Cannabis Payments Report’?

OCOEE, Fla.April 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — POLN8, the all-inclusive loyalty technology company offering robust and intelligent solutions for businesses large and small powered by 420Financial, has partnered with Benzinga to compile the 2023 Cannabis Payments Report.

The report was released today following the 2023 Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference at the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla., after inviting 5,000 cannabis industry business owners and professionals to provide feedback on their top payment types and experience accepting them.

“As cannabis commerce continues to evolve, so too do payment options for businesses and consumers alike,” the report states. “We found it crucial to gather information around payment type acceptance and interest levels with each method.”

Tom Epstein, CEO of Stein House Holdings, the parent company of POLN8 and 420Financial, also shared findings from the report while moderating one of the conference’s panels, “The Future is Cashless: How Cannabis Businesses Can Adapt to the Next Payments Frontier.”

POLN8 helps build customer retention and implement referral features to grow their customer base in areas where loyalty and rewards programs are permitted for dispensaries. The POLN8 platform accepts a wide variety of payment types – from ACH transfer, debit and crypto payments to POLN8’s very own Private Label card for Cannabis businesses. Plus, customers can load money into their virtual wallet directly through the POLN8 app.

“As the cannabis industry continues to grow, it’s more important than ever to help make business models and payment processes as streamlined and sustainable as possible,” said Tom.
