Sponsors and donors voluntarily support Cannabis Observer's work. We do not charge for subscriptions or have a paywall, and we do not accept advertising. Our current goal is to secure $7,500 per month of recurring funding from organizations and people who benefit from our work.
Ways to Pay
Bank-to-Bank ACH Transfers 🏦 ➡️ 🏦
We use Aeropay to support reliable automated clearing house (ACH) transfers because they facilitate trusted payments for the cannabis sector around the country including retailers in Washington state. Select a monthly sponsorship and you'll be prompted to sign into your existing Aeropay account or create one for free then link your bank account to make secure, direct payments.
Credit, Debit, PayPal 💳
We use Patreon as our vendor to support credit and debit card payments as well as PayPal transactions. Select a monthly sponsorship level below and you'll be prompted to sign in or create your Patreon account.
However the credit card processors and Patreon charge steep fees, cumulatively taking around 12%, so we recommend using another payment method if possible.
Bill Pay 💸
If your bank supports Bill Pay or you'd like to setup direct ACH payments, contact us. There are often no fees on these transactions making them one of the better ways to ensure ALL of your contribution goes to supporting our work.
You can mail us physical checks in amounts and at a cadence of your choosing, a good choice if you'd like to setup an annual sponsorship in one lump sum. We're happy to send you an invoice for your records. Please make checks out to "Cannabis Observer" and mail to:
