Cannabis

With more and more states changing their policies to allow medical and recreational cannabis sales, a major influx of customers is expected to arrive in stores across the country. Is your dispensary equipped with the best prepayment, delivery and checkout options to ensure that happy and satisfied customers can get the products they want and are inclined to continue shopping with you?        

Manageable services that your payment provider can offer to you and your customers can make a large impact on the business’s success. Payment providers should be more than just a sales platform, but also offer innovative services to enhance your tech stack.

Aeropay offers contactless secure payments for dispensaries as well as compliant banking solutions, online ordering capabilities, delivery options and more. Here’s why you should consider onboarding with Aeropay.

Prepay online using Aeropay

Prepayment online with Aeropay is fee-free for customers. A noticeable number of potential consumers have abandoned their shopping carts when hit with surprise fees at check out. Cannabis sales already carry more taxes than sales in other industries, so it’s only natural that customers are looking to avoid additional fees. 

Aeropay’s prepayment process is simple, all shoppers have to do is link to their bank and pay at checkout, saving everyone time. Sales made through Aeropay also come with extra layers of security. At Aeropay, security and protecting the data that belongs to you and your customers is our top priority. Sign-up for Aeropay and safeguard your dispensary with multi-factor authentication at checkout. 

More “Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store” Options

Providing services like buy online, pick-up in-store (BOPIS) is a great on the go method for dispensaries because it allows shoppers to skip long lines. By bridging the gap between foot traffic and online shopping BOPIS meets customer expectations by combining online shopping with in-person pickup. Data from Shopify shows that 59% of consumers are interested in BOPIS-type shopping and among BOPIS shoppers 64% indicated they are opting for in-store pick-up more often than before the COVID-19 pandemic was declared.  

Enjoy Cannabis Delivery

Compliant online delivery allows customers to order online without having to worry about pick-up or having the correct cash on hand for their order. In New York , for example, prepayment for cannabis delivery is mandatory. Aeropay provides a compliant cash-free payment solution through bank-to-bank transfers. For online delivery orders, customers simply select the Aeropay option at checkout, and link to their bank account to pay. Accepting prepayment and cashless payments for cannabis delivery orders is one of the best ways for businesses to secure payments. It’s the safest and easiest method to handle transactions. 

Aeropay allows customers to tip their driver while completing their eCommerce cannabis purchase. Not having to worry about cash on hand is a game changer in terms of flexible spending. Studies have shown that consumers tip more when digital tipping is available.  It’s also much safer, as customers and drivers alike benefit from not having to worry about the risks associated with cash-only transactions. 

Onboarding with Aeropay

Aeropay’s payment platform can be easily integrated right into existing eCommerce cannabis checkout screens. Tracking your dispensary’s finances via the merchant portal makes everything simple. Aeropay’s eCommerce cannabis solutions allows businesses to immediately track and maintain businesses.
