Highroad & Hypur Announce Partnership to Offer Contactless Payments for Cannabis Deliveries in Maryland & D.C.

Scottsdale, AZ, Apr. 23, 2020Hypur Inc. (Hypur), the leading provider of compliant, safe, and sustainable payment and banking options for high-risk, cash-intensive businesses, today announced a new partnership with HighRoad, a Maryland-based cannabis delivery company, to provide the industry’s first contactless payment solution for deliveries and curbside pickups with Hypur’s “safe checkout” feature. Highroad’s on-demand delivery service will serve customers in Maryland and the broader Washington D.C. area. As social distancing mandates persist, a cashless payment system allows for stronger health protections for workers and consumers. 

“We are excited to partner with Highroad to make cannabis deliveries and purchases easier, faster, and safer with our industry-first ‘safe checkout’ feature,” said Hypur Founder and Chief Executive Officer Christopher E. Galvin. “Deliveries and contactless payments are needed to meet the demands of customers and businesses during this unprecedented crisis.”

Hypur’s reliable and compliant technology reduces cash handling and physical contact at checkout and eliminates the extra step of stopping at an ATM to get cash to pay for products. The “safe checkout” digital payments feature is available through the Highroad platform. 

“Our partnership will allow for us to not only expand our service to serve more people, but will also ensure that our customers are getting their products safely and securely,” said Jennifer Snowden, Founder of Highroad. “Keeping our workers and consumers safe during  COVID-19 is our top priority.”

Hypur is a trusted, experienced payment provider that serves more than 600 customers nationwide and has upwards of 25 partnerships with financial institutions. In Hypur’s six years of operation, their service has never gone down once.
