Medicinal Cannabis Payment & Social Network
SDZ is a cannabis focussed social and payment network that aggregates and develops comprehensive strategies for online retailing and promotion. The three Core components to SDZ Holdings are 1) A payment gateway: SDZ PAY, 2) A Social Network for the Greater Cannabis Community: SDZ TODAY and 3)An E-Commerce Marketplace Everything HEMPD
SDZ take the major problems that exist in the online world of cannabis sales and promotion, specifically CBD products and manages these problems with global solutions. The payment gateway is enabled to process transactions globally and specifically in North America via Visa, Mastercard and JCB for card transactions. SDZpay also is enabled for Bitcoin transactions and remits the payouts in the settling currency that the product was transacted in such as USD, GBP and Euro. Another major feature of the gateway is the eCheck ability for North American clients, this enables merchants to offer eCheck on top of credit cards to their clients. To date the eCheck functionality covers an estimated 95% of North American banks making this solution a very attractive back up to your existing or required credit card facilities.
SDZ are continually developing a merchant centre that ensures all merchants that are connected to the SDZpay network are equally promoted within the merchant centre online that enables additional merchant promotion and sales while also being connected to the SDZ.Today social platform. The merchant centre and social platform are two are very valuable components of SDZ with the development of the ecosystem that is not restricted by corporations that are unable or unwilling to promote cannabis related products.
SDZ PAY is the cannabis processor for Visa, Mastercard, JCB, BitCoin and eCheck for North America and legal jurisdictions globally. Processing is available in multiple currencies including: USD, Japanese Yen, Euro & British Pound.
Everything HEMPD is the global merchant centre for everything that is hemp related. Join the SDZ payment network and you are automatically connected to the fast growing and focussed merchant centre that is Everything Hempd.
SDZ TODAY is a social platform for cannabis visionaries, activists & merchants in the legal supply of cannabis products. It allows like minded people to communicate, create & join groups, upload images & videos & share their opinions.
SDZ Holdings vision is to close the gap by reducing the friction between global online payments and social acceptance of controlled legal substances such as medicinal based cannabis while creating facilities for merchants to operate and expand globally via the SDZ ecosystem.
Since 1996, we’ve seen two-thirds of all U.S. states give medical marijuana the green light, with 11 of these states also allowing adult-use consumption and/or retail sales. Meanwhile, Canada became the first industrialized country in the modern era to legalize recreational cannabis in October 2018. North America “going green” has played a big role in more than tripling global marijuana revenue to $10.9 billion in 2018 from $3.4 billion in 2014.
Reports suggest that worldwide legal cannabis revenue will increase to $103.9 billion by 2024. This would represent an 853% increase in sales from 2018, and equates to a compound annual growth rate of 45.6%.
Through the SDZ ecosystem, we aim to introduce merchants to facilities to enable their dreams to become apart of the global solution.
