acquiring.com to provide acquiring solutions for fourfive CBD, a brand new start-up specialising in cannabinoid oil products, run by Saracens and international rugby players George Kruis and Dominic Day
LONDON, January 23rd: Secure Trading Group’s merchant acquirer acquiring.com will provide acquiring solutions for the new health and wellness venture of Saracens rugby club’s second row combination of George Kruis and Dominic Day. Both are huge names in international rugby, with Kruis having played for England and the British Lions, and Day for Wales. Throughout the pair’s respective careers, matches missed through injury have been a major concern; between them, they have had 12 rugby-related operations. fourfive CBD’s goal is to bring the numerous health benefits of cannabinoid oil to a wider audience to help prevent injury and to promote all-round health and well-being.
“Since the approval of CBD products by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) last year, their benefits have been recognised throughout the professional rugby community,” Day said. “At every club there are a small number of players using CBD products to help with problems such as rheumatic pains, fatigue, stress, and the wear and tear that is part and parcel of a professional sporting environment. Fourfive CBD will help more athletes of all levels improve performance through tried-and-tested CBD products.”
Secure Trading have close links with the world of rugby through their partnership with the RFU, and shirt sponsorship of England Sevens. At a grassroots level, they sponsor men’s, women’s and junior teams of rapidly growing Kent club Old Elthamians. The introduction between fourfive CBD and Secure Trading was orchestrated by Zion Payments, an independent sales organisation who have provided payment gateway solutions to acquiring.com for over four years. Looking to align Kruis and Day with partners whose ethos and approach complement that of fourfive CBD, Zion saw this as the perfect opportunity to match the pair’s business with Secure Trading.
“Secure Trading Group’s payment solutions came to our attention through Zion, thanks to their links with the RFU, which proved to be a great way to start the conversation,” Kruis said. “Dom and I are fairly new to the world of business, and want to choose the best operational partner companies to help fourfive CBD to expand. Secure Trading and Zion have the experience to provide the seamless payment experience that our website needs.”
“Our CBD merchant base is expanding exponentially, which makes it an exciting time for George and Dom to have chosen acquiring.com top power their online payments,” Paul Adams, VP of Sales at acquiring.com added. “Their prowess on the field will no doubt be translated seamlessly to the business world, and we’re proud to facilitate the growth of such an ambitious and forward-thinking start-up.”
