Why now?

Fragmented marketplace

The cannabis payment marketplace has evolved with many small players.

Competitor disruptions

Elavon, an industry leader processing US$100m+ per month had to pull out of the market in April-19 due to compliance issues. This has created a significant opportunity for SDZ.

Targeting a single, achievable and lucrative pain point

Cannabis companies are willing to invest time and money into improving their payment services. With industry margins falling in 2018, every 1% saved has a material impact.

SDZ infrastructure is suitable for all controlled substances

Cannabis companies have the greatest need, but pharmaceuticals are a natural progression. Proof of concept and market scale will lead to new industry applications.
