The CBD Business is Booming

Don’t worry about your bank account getting shut down or your payment processor kicking you off their platform. Abaca’s figured out how to offer payment processing to the CBD and hemp industry.

The majority of consumers would rather use a card than cash, especially if the transaction is over $22 (Experian). Increase transaction count and ticket amount with Abaca’s secure, fast and reliable payment processing.

Reduce additional work hours from cash loss, equipment and services expense, security, and lost sales due to management’s attention being diverted to the unnecessary logistics of cash.
