Commerce Online Announces New Merchant Services Agreement with Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Beverly Hills, California

Commerce Online Inc. (Pink Sheets: CMIB; www.commerceonlineinc.com), a leading company specializing in both bricks and mortar and online merchant payment solutions, today announced a new medical marijuana dispensary client for merchant services located in Beverly Hills, California through its Collective Card Services Division. The new dispensary Healthy, Wealthy and Wise (www.h2w.org) will begin merchant processing through Commerce Online and its partner alliance network using its encrypted, closed loop technology and branded, pre-paid loyalty and ID card for licensed medical marijuana dispensaries and collectives operating within the states of California and Colorado.

In an effort to keep these collectives within the guidelines of CA Proposition 215 and SB 420, the Commerce Online merchant processing and pre-paid stored value and loyalty card will offer a unique cash alternative to these regulated dispensaries for both suppliers and members of collectives. Under new legal guidelines recently issued by the Obama administration, no longer seeking prosecution of medical marijuana users or suppliers as long as they conform to state laws, Commerce Online and RedFin Network will seek to capitalize on this presently untapped and much needed solution.

According to a recent Fortune Magazine article, there are an estimated 300,000 to 400,000 medical marijuana patients in the state of California now, and the figure is rapidly growing. More astonishingly, there are about 700 medical marijuana dispensaries now operating in California openly distributing the drug. "CMIB is presently poised to pick up a majority share of this untapped marketplace by offering our proven secure payment solution through our alliance partners and to move toward the legitimization of the medical marijuana industry," stated commerce Online CEO, Kyle Gotshalk.

The Commerce Online branded, pre-paid loyalty and ID card will be marketed through our new Collective Card Services division, and may be loaded to any denomination of funds with direct deposit at local bank, via the Internet, POS system by the member of the collective or medical dispensary. The RedFin Network PCI Compliant Payment Gateway will handle all loyalty transactions at the point of sale. In case of theft or loss, the card may be cancelled immediately through an 800 number provided or online. The card will also act as the Collective member's identification having the option of a Picture ID, medical id number identifying him/her as a collective member, the collective name, and expiration date of membership," stated Michael Friedman for Commerce Online.
