Lightspeed is a weird one for cannabis dispensary POS. Don’t get us wrong, it’s an incredible POS system, but not one designed for marijuana sales. In order to even use Lightspeed as a POS system, you have to use a third-party service called 2ACCEPT.
2ACCEPT takes care of the high-risk processing associated with cannabis sales and provides the legal compliance that Lightspeed needs to be able to offer its POS system to dispensaries.
So, why go to all this trouble just to use Lightspeed? Well, Lightspeed is one of the most powerful and modern POS systems on the market today. It’s a top contender for best POS provider, period. And almost all of its customers agree that the service is fantastic.
With Lightspeed you get so many great functionalities:
- Ecommerce tools
- Loyalty programs
- Accounting integrations
- Modern hardware options
- Delivery management
- Customer-facing displays
- Marketing tools
- Inventory management
- And more
With so many awesome features packed into one program, it’s hard not to recommend it. That said, it seems Lightspeed doesn’t quite have both feet in the dispensary game yet. It’s just getting started. Because of that, we’ve put Lightspeed at the bottom of our recommendation list.
If, in the future, Lightspeed takes a greater interest in dispensary POS, the only direction from here is up. And, of course, if you're already interested in what Lightspeed has to offer, it’s worth at least getting on a call.
