payments are powered by Aeropay’s partnership with Safe Harbor, the leading compliance-based banking program for cannabis businesses affiliated with Partner Colorado Credit Union.

Why use Aeropay?
Cannabis may be one of the few industries that still cannot accept credit cards, but that doesn’t mean that everyday customers still have to rely on cash. Modern dispensaries recognize the importance of offering sophisticated products and services that cater to shoppers’ preferences and habits.
During the pandemic, digital payments became the norm –with 50% of consumers reporting they would not shop at a store without contactless payment methods. Enabled with sophisticated and secure technology, with compliance at its core, Aeropay is a forward-thinking payment solution that allows cannabis retailers to finally offer mainstream customer
During previous purchases, you might have been able to use your debit card at a dispensary. These payments are known as “cashless ATM” purchases and are actually more complicated than they seem. If you were to take a closer look at your statement, you’ll notice the name of the dispensary is missing. This method is called “masking,” and it prevents banks from recognizing
a cannabis transaction in your bank account. While this method is more convenient than paying with cash, it is not a legal long-term solution and can add unnecessary ATM or processing fees to your order total.
ACH payments are a lot safer for you and the bank. Any business that is known publicly to have large amounts of cash on hand is vulnerable to theft. Dispensaries are historically known to only be able to accept cash payments and therefore have to put a lot of capital into keeping the storefront safe. These costs ultimately get passed along to you as the customer. With
bank-to-bank transfers, payments are instant, secure and compliant. Customer success is at the heart of Aeropay. If any issues pop up, a dedicated team of customer support personnel is able to provide assistance.
