CHICAGO, IL, Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- CannaTrac® (“CannaTrac”), the leading cashless mobile payment system solution for the cannabis industry, today announced that the company has released their global application programming interface (“API”) for platforms to easily integrate with CannaCard®.

By providing a global API, CannaTrac® greatly simplifies the integration process for programmers. This ease of integration makes adopting the CannaCard® significantly more appealing to a large range of retailers and Point-of-Sale (“POS”) companies looking for a cashless payment solution. Additionally, CannaCard’s integration capabilities include POS systems embedded into seed-to-sale cannabis software programs.

“When developing CannaCard®, we knew the importance of developing the software with a global API to make it as easy as possible for retailers and POS companies to adopt our cashless payment solution,” said Tom Gavin, CEO of CannaTrac®. “Our global API just puts us one step closer to serving as the cannabis industry’s go-to cashless payment solution.” 

CannaTrac’s global API allows programmers to save an immense amount of time and therefore is more cost-effective for companies looking to add CannaCard® as a payment option. CannaTrac® provides all steps for integration besides the direct tie of CannaCard® into the individual retailer’s platform.

The CannaCard® presents users with preference options of both a physical card and a free mobile app that allow users to easily upload funds through the app with their checking account, debit card, credit card, and/or cash in person at partnered dispensaries or retail locations. 

After announcing last month, CannaTrac® had entered into an agreement with 18,000 retail locations predominantly made up of non-cannabis retail locations, the company gained the opportunity to serve consumers as the one-stop card necessary for all transactions.

The CannaCard® app can be downloaded for free from Google Play and Apple Store. Consumers can reload their CannaCard® at participating dispensaries and retail stores, or directly through their online/mobile account. The flat fee to load their account is $0.95. 


CannaTrac® offers a cashless payment solution for the cannabis industry. With the CannaCard® or our CannaCard App™, both consumers and retailers benefit from the ease and safety of cashless payments.
