Canna Group Payment Solutions Rates, Fees, and Costs

Key Points

Early Termination Fee Undisclosed
PCI Compliance Fee Undisclosed
Equipment Lease Terms Undisclosed

Variable Contract Terms

Canna Group Payment Solutions does not disclose most of its pricing to the public, and there are no complaints that mention specific rates or fees charged by the company. As a high risk payment processor, it’s likely that the company’s contract terms and pricing will vary dramatically depending on each merchant’s business type, location, and processing history. Canna Group Payment Solutions offers its agents an 80% commission on equipment sales, so it’s possible that agents can set their own pricing for long-term equipment leases. Merchants are advised to purchase their own equipment whenever possible to avoid getting locked into long-term, non-cancellable equipment leases.

High Risk Means High Fees

High risk merchants who sign up with Canna Group Payment Solutions should expect to pay higher-than-average fees, and they may also be subject to cash reserves on their accounts. This is standard practice within the industry due to the elevated risk of chargebacks that many high risk merchants pose. High risk merchants can reduce their risk of fund holds and chargebacks by being open and transparent with Canna Group Payment Solutions about their business type and product lineup from the start.

No Red Flags

We cannot find any Canna Group Payment Solutions complaints related to the company’s pricing, and there’s no reason to believe that the company’s merchants are dissatisfied with their pricing at this time. It is possible that Canna Group Payment Solutions offers a wide range of potential contract types, so merchants should understand how to spot undesirable terms in their contracts.

Truth In Marketing & Advertising

Key Points

Employs Independent Resellers Yes
Advertises Deceptive Rates Yes
Discloses All Important Terms No

Inside/Outside Team

Canna Group primarily relies on independently contracted sales agents across the country to market its services. Independent sales agents are commonly linked to elevated complaint rates, but we have not found any Canna Group sales complaints that mention deceptive conduct or misrepresented fees. We will therefore assume for the time being that the company’s sales team does not engage in unethical activity.

Canna Group Sales Commissions

Canna Group makes its agent agreement available on its website. This agreement outlines the standard commissions that the company pays to its sales agents:

Standard Commission is equal to 50% of the excess between the Buy Rates stated below and VENDOR’s collected fees generated from Referred Merchants derived from ISO.

Cash Advance Commission is equal to 50% of the funded amount and isn’t paid until company is funded by vendor.

Equipment Commission is equal to 80% of the net profits

Set up/Reprogramming Commission is equal to 50% of the amount collected

Merchants should bear these commission splits in mind when negotiating with any agent.

Canna Group Rate Quotes

The Canna Group Payment Solutions currently advertises “High Risk Rates as Low as 2.99%” for non-CBD or marijuana businesses. It is likely that this quote is only the company’s qualified rate, while Canna Group makes no mention of the higher mid-qualified and non-qualified rates that may be charged. However, given the fact that we have not found any allegations of misleading rate quotes, it appears that the company is generally straightforward about the rest of its rates. If you suspect that a Canna Group Payment Solutions sales agent has misled you about your rates, you can double-check your monthly bill with a third-party statement audit.

Why I'm Qualified to Write About Credit Card Processing and Merchant Account Services

I'm a former credit card processing sales director who left the industry because I didn't like how it takes advantage of small business owners. It feeds like a leech on businesses and thrives by imposing fees that are nearly impossible to comprehend. Seeing a need for change, I left and built this website help business owners better understand the industry, research merchant services providers, and get refunds of excessive merchant account fees. My experience of working "behind the curtain" in the industry, and using that knowledge for good, has resulted in millions of dollars returned to hard-working small business owners as well as enterprise-level companies.

From the time that I starting working in the merchant services industry to when I left to create this website, I've been on the pulse of payments for nearly 15 years. It didn't seem fair to keep this "insider" knowledge to myself. To lift the fog, I've reviewed hundreds of companies, read thousands of user reviews, and learned the pricing tricks of every provider. If you have questions about credit card processing, you can find the answers on this website.

How I Can Help You

I specialize in helping businesses get refunds of excessive fees and have recovered $1,567,184 this year alone! Submit a recent statement below to find out if you are getting overcharged. I'll take a look at it for free. If I find fees that can be refunded, hire me on contigency. I only get compensated if I put money back into your pocket.
