Hands Together


At PayQwick, we have a genuine desire to increase access to opportunities within the cannabis industry. While our platform and tools help small business owners operate at a higher level with the larger players, we believe there is always more that can be done. This is why we work with other like-minded partners to strive for social equity in the cannabis industry.

Our Social Equity program provides preferred terms, dedicated account managers, complimentary in-depth training on compliance requirements and more to cannabis businesses which need a hand.


“The entire PayQwick team has been incredibly professional and enjoyable to work with. They had the quickest onboarding time of any bank that we looked into, and I had zero issues integrating all of our payment processors. To top it off, the rates are incredibly reasonable. My team and I are very happy with our decision to bank with PayQwick.”
