CanPay – A Legitimate and Stable Payment Option for your Cannabis banking program.

Yes, your compliant cannabis retail clients can now enjoy the benefits of legitimate electronic payments

CanPay is a secure debit network built to facilitate electronic payments between consumers and retailers in highly-regulated and emerging markets, including the State Regulated Cannabis Industry. Merchants with a compliant bank account at a CanPay approved financial institution may join the CanPay network and accept debit transactions from their customers.

Closed-Banking Feedback Loop:

Employing the Closed-Banking Feedback Loop means only cannabis retailers working with financial institutions operating compliance programs built around the Cole Memo and FinCEN Guidance will be allowed to participate in the CanPay network. CanPay utilizes feedback from these financial institutions to help ensure only legitimate transactions from licensed and compliant retailers are allowed to flow through the network. If a merchant loses their bank account with the depository institution for any reason, that merchant also loses access to the CanPay network. In addition to this feedback from the depository institution, CanPay’s ODFI also employs a robust compliance program built around the Cole Memo and FinCEN Guidance.
