Understanding OMMPOS Billing

5/1/2020 9:03:02 AM +00:00

OMMPOS Billing works like a utility with your bill being higher in very active months and lower in slow months. 

The chart above shows how our billing plan works. OMMPOS bills you based on the number of completed sales transactions that you put through the system in the previous month. A transaction is one thing (SKU) sold in a completed order. For example an order with an Eighth, a bong and a joint is 3 transactions. Adjustments, voids and canceled sales do not count against this total. 

Dispensaries who sell less than 700 things in a calendar month only pay $50. Dispensaries who sell less 2,400 things in a month pay $75 for that month and so on. This plan mirrors the way that we pay our hosting provider, Microsoft and allows us to make OMMPOS the most affordable point of sale in the industry.

Please feel free to call me with any questions and thank you for your business!,

Marijuana Retail Licensees Allowed to Provide Curbside Delivery

3/23/2020 12:52:32 AM +00:00

 

Portland, OR --  Today the Oregon Liquor Control Commission approved a temporary rule that supports social distancing to promote prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, by allowing licensed marijuana retailers to conduct limited transactions outside their licensed premises.  The action will permit retail licensees to take orders and deliver product from the retail store to a person who is outside of the store and within 150 feet of the retailer’s licensed premises.

 

At an emergency meeting to consider temporary rules impacting the business activity of OLCC licensees in the alcohol and marijuana industry, the Commission took its action to promote social distancing in the wake of the COVID-19 virus.  The Commission’s action aligns with the Governor’s Executive Order that prohibits public gatherings of 25 people or more, and encourages people to distance themselves by at least 3 feet while in public. 

 

The temporary rule also increases the amount of flower that OMMP cardholders and caregivers can purchase to 24 ounces per day and no more than 32 ounces per month. This change temporarily increases the daily purchase limit for OMMP cardholders to match their personal possession limit. This rule does not change the total monthly amount a cardholder or caregiver is currently permitted to purchase from an OLCC-licensed retailer.

 

The temporary action that the Commission has taken is designed to balance the protection of public health while at the same time helping struggling businesses.  Marijuana industry guidance can be found here.
