The launch is Eaze’s first expansion outside of California combining the company’s deep understanding of the cannabis industry and strong brand partnerships with its experience building a successful and compliant e-commerce platform.

“Eaze’s mission has always been to educate consumers and provide safe, legal access to cannabis. The launch of Eaze Wellness is a natural next step in our mission,” said Jim Patterson, CEO of Eaze. “Americans are curious about CBD and asking for high-quality CBD products, but until now, there’s been no singular destination where consumers with a variety of experience levels can find the products that are right for them. Eaze Wellness changes that.”

Eaze Wellness will feature an assortment of hemp-derived CBD products from Plant People, Cannuka, BeTrū Wellness, Vital Leaf, and more. Consumers over the age of 21 can visit www.eazewellness.com to learn about CBD, browse the menu and purchase products. Their purchases will be shipped via a third-party provider and will arrive in 4-6 business days.

CanPay Expands Services To Include Cannabis Ecommerce

Debit Payment Solution Now Available in 120 Retail Locations Across 14 States

COLORADO: CanPay, a leading debit payment solution for the cannabis industry, has begun offering ecommerce payment solutions.  In addition to expanding payments online, CanPay has doubled the number of states it operates to 14, including: New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Michigan and New Mexico.

CanPay LogoWith the cannabis industry projected to exceed $24 billion by 2025 and over half of the U.S. population in support of legalization, it’s no surprise the marketplace is thriving. As the industry becomes further established, ecosystem partners are primed to play a key role in further legitimizing it, and leading the charge is ecommerce. An influential aspect of any retail business–nearly 80 percent of Americans have made an online purchase–cannabis will be no exception to the overwhelming convenience and profitability of the digital marketplace. As the original ecommerce–payment integration for cannabis customers, CanPay further solidifies itself as the universal payment tool for purchases wherever cannabis is legally sold, enabling online orders for in-store pickup and delivery.

“The Cole Memo being rescinded caused a lot of market uncertainty in the first part of 2018. Now that the dust has settled, we’re seeing more and more financial institutions come forward to serve the industry through compliant cannabis banking programs. We’re also seeing more retail operators demand transparent, stable, and legitimate payment services to operate above reproach,” said Dustin Eide, CEO of CanPay. “The rapid expansion of CanPay’s services to-date is a testament not only to overall industry growth, but the massive need we’re able to fulfill by de-cashing cannabis purchases.”

Historically, ecommerce has not been available to the cannabis industry partially due to the extreme transparency online payment systems require. CanPay’s solution opens the door and creates the opportunity for increased profitability for retailers through more effective online selling and higher spend per transaction. Simultaneously, the buying process becomes more convenient and safer for consumers.

“In forging a new cannabis culture built on unparalleled quality, access, and transparency, we’ve partnered with CanPay to provide customers with a legitimate, secure online payment option,” said Patricia Rosi-Santucci, CEO of Wellness Connection of Maine. “As trailblazers, integrating with CanPay allows us to forge the next wave of cannabis retail through an ecommerce experience that offers customers a greater incentive to go cashless from a convenience and speed standpoint.”
