Atlanta, GA / http://www.myprgenie.com/ via ACCESSWIRE / March 20, 2014 / Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (DGRI.OTC) (the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into an agreement to immediately begin to offer a Point of Banking solution to MMJ merchants as an alternative to traditional merchant account services and to facilitate secure merchant transactions.
It is virtually impossible for MMJ retailers to acquire merchant accounts, and they are typically subject to very high rates if they are somehow able to actually secure a merchant account. Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. will begin offering Point of Banking solutions to the MMJ sector to give retailers access to card processing and to reduce costs for the industry.
Point of Banking functions as a “cashless ATM Machine” that allows retail merchants to accept bankcards without the high processing fees associated with either a traditional or high-risk merchant account. All processing fees for approved transactions are paid for by the cardholders through a small convenience fee that is added to the transaction amount being charged to the customer’s card, similar to using an out-of-network ATM machine. Point of Banking uses a terminal configured to run PIN-based transactions that most merchants place right at the cash register. Whole dollar amounts are run in increments of $5 or $10. The terminal prints a two-part receipt, so both the merchant and the customer can keep a copy. Funds are electronically deposited into the recipient’s bank account.
The Company has partnered with CyoGate, LLC, which owns and operates the CyoGate Internet Payment gateway, one of the quickest and most cost effective ways to accept and process credit card and electronic check payments. The CyoGate Internet payment gateway works with dozens of merchant processors around the world, and is supported on hundreds of popular web shopping carts and ecommerce platforms.
“We are extremely pleased to have Dutch Gold as a premier payment solutions partner, said Jonathan Castleman, CEO of CyoGate, “and we believe that their expertise and positioning in the industry, combined with CyoGate’s leading-edge payment solutions, effectively solves the biggest challenge facing legal MMJ dispensaries and delivery services today.”
Under the terms of the agreement Dutch Gold will be able to offer mobile, Internet, and high risk transaction processing and Point of Banking merchant solutions. The Company will begin marketing the Point of Banking product immediately. Interested customers are asked to contact info@DutchGoldInc.com for information.
