Hi Kelly. We are a medical device company and are considering offering limited CBD product designed dose measuring / control and clinical studies. Would it be possible to apply or be added to a review list? In the meantime, we will sell just our devices on-line. Thank you
I did contact square today to see if I could join the program as well. I sell online at snapdragonhemp.com and also have two retail locations.
They informed me that their pilot program was full but would possibly keep me up-to-date if there were more openings available.
I call BS on this. Contracts can be renegotiated, especially when it could potentially benefit Square.
Sure, this is an oddball situation, but Square’s lack of additional details is frustrating. Especially given that every gas station and conscience store is selling CBD.
Perhaps if more of us threatened to pull our business, they would act more quickly.
You're certainly entitled to your opinion. I can't answer for why other businesses are selling these product, but as I stated at the beginning of my post, it's my interpretation, and I could easily be wrong about it. Renegotiating contracts is not an easy or fast thing and I don't even know for sure that Square is doing that. If my business involved selling CBD products, I would very likely share your frustration.
Additionally, Square has not addressed the fact that the TOS and non-permitted items list has not been updated. Playing the card that we would be in violation of OUR TOS with Square when we, in fact, would not be, is dumbfounding.
If it’s truly an issue with their contracts with others, the update the TOS. Square threatening their customers like this is setting themselves up for legal action.
