Marijuana Industry is a Buzz-kill For Banks

We all knew it was coming. Banks and mainstream merchant account processors are not wanting to deal with legalized and medical marijuana merchants. These companies are prone to having a higher risk of fraudulent activity, therefore higher fees for the banks to pay out. Banks are stingy with their funds, so you can see why these businesses are turned down for merchant accounts. While it might seem like a good idea to have a cash-only business and forgo plastic card payments all together, it is not in this type of business. Medical and legalized marijuana merchants also have a higher […]

Surprisingly, You Do Not Have to Accept Credit Cards to Receive an ACH Business Loan

Many business owners already know the value of a merchant cash advance. They are selling a portion of their future credit card processing for payment on an immediate loan.
