Dutchie Brings Cashless Payments to New York Cannabis Dispensaries

March 7, 2023

Equipped with Dutchie Pay and integrated PIN debit, Just Breathe and Union Square Travel Agency offer New York cannabis customers multiple cashless payment options.

NEW YORK – Dutchie — the technology platform powering cannabis commerce — announced today that two New York dispensaries, Just Breathe, located in Binghamton and Union Square Travel Agency, located in Manhattan, will now offer customers multiple cash-free payment options: integrated PIN debit and Dutchie Pay, an ACH based digital payment solution that compliantly fulfills the current guidance requirements.

“The expectation that legal dispensaries should only accept cash is laced with stigma and does not reflect the direction the industry is headed in,” said Dutchie CEO Tim Barash. “We are excited to have the opportunity to bring our state of the art cash-free payment solutions to New York’s dispensaries and further equip licensees for success.”  

Dutchie Pay will better equip New York’s dispensaries for success by seamlessly integrating with the dispensaries’ POS and ecommerce solutions to create hyper-efficient workflows, eliminate redundancies, reduce errors and maximize efficiencies via secure, contactless payment solutions. All delivery orders can also be prepaid at the time the order is made through Dutchie Pay, which is in compliance with the current CAURD delivery guidance requirements.    

Dispensaries have historically been a cash-only business, creating safety risks and inefficiencies. The introduction of Dutchie’s suite of integrated payment solutions reduces the risks associated with handling large sums of cash. This includes limiting the possibility of human error, enhancing cleanliness and health and safety measures, and most importantly, providing a way for dispensary operators and their employees to be more safe and secure. 

For customers of Just Breathe and Union Square Travel Agency, it will heighten the purchasing experience by normalizing cannabis retail purchases and increasing convenience by allowing for cash-free payment options in-store and online. 

Dutchie was selected by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) as the exclusive provider of point of sale (POS) and ecommerce solutions for CAURD licensees. The partnership equips New York’s social equity licensees with powerful technology to streamline operations, service their customers, and create safe and easy access to legal cannabis.
