“We cater to a diverse range of industries and business needs, and partnering with a seasoned company like Hypur gives us an exciting opportunity to continue to grow our footprint in the cannabis industry,” says Julien Bertrand, Head of Marketing at Odoo. “Their industry expertise fortifies our efforts to disrupt the market and continue expanding our products and services to help power businesses worldwide.”

Hypur’s reliable and compliant technology reduces cash handling, eliminating the extra step of stopping at an ATM, and physical contact at checkout. With their new safe checkout product feature, Hypur provides contactless payments for in-store, delivery, and curbside pickup purchases, alongside an added tipping feature for delivery drivers and budtenders. The availability of digital payment solutions for cannabis deliveries and purchases is crucial as the cannabis industry has been deemed essential in many cities and states around the country. As a result, many have been experiencing a surge in consumer sales during the COVID-19 outbreak, which urges social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates to uphold public health and safety.
Hypur has an extensive network of partnerships with trusted banks and credit unions throughout the United States openly banking the cannabis industry. Hypur integrates with a wide range of partners to offer consumers increasingly critical services, including digital payments and pickup and delivery options, and is focused on compliance and sustainability.
