The holiday shopping season is here and with inflation high, the deals couldn’t come at a better time. For cannabis consumers this means stocking up the day before Thanksgiving, called Green Wednesday. This cannabis holiday has become a day for cannabis consumers to visit their local dispensary before the long holiday weekend. 

In recent years, sales on Green Wednesday have soared, coming in 2nd to the biggest day of sales of the year, 420. Cannabis sales that day are generally 40% higher than a typical Wednesday in November, according to research firm BDSA

Green Wednesday was created by a cannabis delivery company in 2016 when they noticed a large increase in sales on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a trend that has continued to grow each year.  With the precedent of the last five noted Green Wednesdays, this season will likely be even bigger.

Benefits of debit payments:

  • Reduced liability & risk. Requiring the 4 digit PIN on debit card transactions greatly reduces the possibility of fraud. 
  • Payments to the penny. With integrated PIN Debit, your transactions are charged at exactly the transaction amount, which means there is no need to return change to your customer or charge them a transaction fee.
  • Contactless. PIN debit terminals are also able to process contactless payments through a debit card using a mobile wallet. 
  • Tipping. Incentivize your budtenders by giving your customers the ability to add a tip with pre-calculated prompts based on a percentage of the total transaction.
