BONITA SPRINGS, FL, April 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Green Check (GC), the leading fintech provider of financial services solutions and industry insights in the emerging cannabis market, today announced its partnership with Payment Alliance International (PAI), Powered by Brinks, to deliver seamless ATM solutions to the cannabis industry.  This new partnership empowers PAI to reach more operators via Green Check’s extensive network of cannabis-friendly financial institutions.

The partnership further evidences Green Check’s commitment to expanding access to financial and business services for the growing cannabis industry and the tens of thousands of legal, state-licensed operators looking for reliable providers and services.  

“Within the more than 9,000 cannabis businesses currently on the Green Check Connect marketplace, our data shows more than 70% of the $7.8 billion processed over the last 12 months was cash-based,” said Kevin Hart, founder and CEO of Green Check. “With cash currency still holding the lion’s share of transactions in the cannabis industry, it is imperative to have reliable, trusted integrated ATM cash management solutions that support cannabis operators’ growth and success. We’re excited to partner with PAI to do just that.”

Cannabis payments solutions have been in the news recently with increasing enforcement of several key restrictions regarding credit card usage, in particular.  

“In an environment where operators are uncertain which digital payment solutions are going to be reliable or available, the one constant is cash, meaning a cannabis business cannot have cash disruptions and unreliable ATMs without directly and dramatically impacting their customers and their bottom lines,” said David Dove, CEO of PAI, Powered by Brinks.  “PAI solutions enable consumers and businesses to have reliable access to cash, real-time visibility to transactions and revenue, as well as comprehensive reporting to meet compliance requirements. We want to create more transparency, normalize the industry, and assure anyone can access cash when needed.” 

Both companies will be attending the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Hollywood, Florida on April 16-17, where they will share more details on the launch of the partnership.
