Quickly's Early Payment Program has been the solution PURPLEFARM Genetics has always been looking for.

Business challenge

PURPLEFARM Genetics, an innovative cannabis producer, faced significant challenges in securing working capital to support its ambitious growth and international expansion. Traditional financing routes were closed due to industry restrictions, creating a critical need for a reliable cash flow solution.

How Quickly helped

Quickly introduced an Early Payment Program for PURPLEFARM Genetics, allowing them to receive early payments from their buyers in exchange for a small discount. This solution automated the payment process and integrated seamlessly with their existing accounting systems, providing the much-needed cash flow to support their rapid expansion.

The story of PURPLEFARM Genetics

Founded by Mitchell Alswiti, PURPLEFARM is a premier B2B craft cannabis producer that began operating under ACMPR medical cannabis regulations and obtained its full license in 2018. Headquartered in Johnstown, Ontario, PURPLEFARM is dedicated to producing premium craft cannabis, focusing on quality from the genetics of their crops to the soil they use. The company prides itself on maintaining craft cannabis standards while scaling operations, ensuring that each batch meets the highest standards of potency and terpene profiles. Through innovative techniques and a commitment to excellence, PURPLEFARM is at the forefront of the cannabis industry, growing the Future of High Culture.

The challenge of payment terms before Quickly

With payment terms of 60-75 days and a meticulous production cycle that takes roughly 150 days, ROI on craft cannabis cultivation has a long lead time. As a cannabis company, PURPLEFARM struggled to access traditional working capital financing through government agencies or chartered banks due to industry restrictions and B lender offerings came with high costs and strict terms.
