420 celebrations are different this year due to COVID-19 and social distancing. Despite these challenges, our team is ready to support you and make sure your business is prepared for 420.

Here are 7 tips to keep in mind for the 420 sales boost:

Curbside Pickup and Delivery

With many provinces moving to curbside pickup and delivery (check provincial regulations), your business will need a reliable ecommerce and Click and Collect solution set up. Merrco’s Click and Collect payment solution is integrated with the leading cannabis ecommerce platforms including Dutchie and Super Anytime. To get started with Click and Collect, please email info@merrco.ca or call 1-844-476-5726.

Go Cashless

Take the bold step of making your cannabis store cashless. This will minimize contact with paper money and the potential germs it carries. Not only will you stand in contrast to what was once a cash-only business, you will be on trend with where Canadian consumers are heading.

Gift cards

Do you have a gift card program for your cannabis business? Entice new customers to return with Merrco’s Gift Card Solution. Give your store and your customers the gift of customized, reloadable gift cards for any occasion and grow your store’s sales.

The 420 Rush

To prepare for the 420 rush, ensure you have enough inventory and staff on hand, as customers will likely buy more than usual. A good Click and Collect solution can help you manage the added sales volume.

420 Special Offers

To enhance 420 sales, consider upselling, or offering special deals, bundles and savings to customers (subject to Provincial laws).

Contactless Payments

When your customers arrive to pick up their order, encourage them to use contactless payment and sanitize the terminal often. It’s easy, secure and nearly instant.

Happy 420!

420 sales can be 50% to 300% higher than a regular weekday. That’s why your cannabis business needs a reliable, flexible payment system to manage the increase in demand.
