I paid at a retail cannabis store with my debit/credit card and received a link to open a PayQwick account. What do I do now?
You will receive an email from us with a temporary password and a link that will enable you to complete the signup process. Click on the link in the email and follow the instructions in the email for entering your temporary password. Be sure to change your temporary password right away. Once you have completed the signup process, you will want to “Link” your bank account or credit union account to your PayQwick account. Follow the FAQs above that explain how to “Link” your bank or credit union account and how to transfer money to your PayQwick account.
How do I transfer money into my PayQwick account?
First, you need to “link” your bank or credit union account to your PayQwick account. You can only transfer money to your PayQwick account if you have a USA-based bank or credit union account.
How do I “link” my bank or credit union account to my PayQwick account?
  • Login to your PayQwick account.
  • Select the “Wallet” drop-down menu on the left side of the “Account Overview” screen.
  • Hit the “Create new Account” button and fill in the required information. Be sure you have your bank or credit union’s routing number and your account number handy.
  • Hit the “Submit” button.
In 1-2 days, you will see a small, micro deposit appear in your bank or credit union account. We do this to ensure the routing number and account number you typed-in are correct.
Once you see the micro deposit, login to your PayQwick account and hit the “Verify Now” button on the “Account Overview” screen. Enter the amount of the micro deposit. Your bank or credit union account is now “Verified.” You can now transfer money from your bank or credit union account to your PayQwick account.

Please note that you can only have one (1) bank or credit union account linked to your PayQwick account at a time. If you change bank or credit union accounts, we will need to again “verify” that new account with a micro deposit before you can transfer money from that new account into your PayQwick account.
How do I add money to my PayQwick account?
Once your bank or credit union account is “Verified,”
  • Login to your PayQwick account.
  • Click the “Deposit to PayQwick” button at the right of the “Account Overview” page.
  • Click the “Make a Deposit” button and type in the amount of money you want to deposit.
  • Click the “Submit” button.
Due to the way the U.S. banking system works, it usually takes about two (2) business days for the money to show up in your PayQwick account.
How long does it take to deposit or withdraw money?
Once your bank or credit union account is “Verified,” it generally takes two (2) business days for the money to show up in your PayQwick account. Use PayQwick’s “Auto Reload” feature (explained below) to ensure there is enough money in your PayQwick account whenever you go to your favorite cannabis store. When you withdraw money from your PayQwick account, it also takes approximately two (2) business days for the money to show up in your bank or credit union account.
I made a deposit or withdrawal, but don’t see it in my account. Where is my money?
We use the U.S. banking system’s Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfer system when consumers deposit money into their PayQwick account or withdraw money from their PayQwick account. It usually takes two (2) business days to process payments by ACH transfer.
Is there a fee to transfer money into or out of my PayQwick account?
Transferring money to your PayQwick account from your Verified bank or credit union account is absolutely free! It works just like an electronic check (e-Check). Transferring money from your PayQwick back to your Verified bank or credit union account is free too. In addition, using the PayQwick smartphone App is free.
What shows up on my bank statement when I transfer money to PayQwick or use PayQwick to make a purchase?
When you transfer money to your PayQwick account or use PayQwick to make a purchase, it merely shows up as “PayQwick.”
What shows up on my bank statement when I pay for cannabis using the PayQwick App?
The cannabis store’s name does not appear on your bank statement. Because PayQwick is its own, self-contained payment platform, only “PayQwick” shows up on your bank statement when you buy cannabis with the PayQwick Smartphone App.
What shows up on my bank statement when I pay for cannabis using PayQwick and my debit/credit card?
The cannabis store’s name does not appear on your bank statement. Because PayQwick is its own, self-contained payment platform, only “PayQwick” shows up on your bank statement when you buy cannabis with PayQwick using your debit/credit card.
Why should I become a PayQwick member?
