Erba Collective is one of Los Angeles’ most beloved dispensaries. Erba prides themselves on craft cannabis with an emphasis on sustainable and organic growing techniques. Their product range features top quality, top brands, and a wonderfully diverse selection of cannabis and CBD products.

Manufactured in the United States, greenbox Robotics is the first fully automated cannabis kiosk. Greenbox Robotics has harnessed the most sophisticated automation technology to make your buying and selling experience fast, easy, and way ahead of its time.

Datacap Systems develops processor and hardware-agnostic innovative integrated payment solutions for any Point of Sale, regardless of system architecture. Industry-standard payment solutions from Datacap are utilized by hundreds of POS applications in an array of vertical markets.


With an overabundance of foot traffic, Erba Collective needed a way to reduce wait times and increase customer turnover. greenbox Robotics needed a way to add cashless payments to their kiosks. So, Erba Collective and greenbox Robotics turned to Datacap.


Erba Collective uses greenbox’s kiosks with Datacap’s NETePay™ software and Ingenico’s iSelf Series TRIO.

greenbox Robotics kiosks are intuitive and informative. Consumers can browse through Erba’s catalog of products by filtering and searching, ensuring that they always find what they need. greenbox’s kiosks feature a robotic arm, a gull-wing door for easy re-stocking and a temperature controlled storage unit.

Ingenico’s iSelf Series TRIO allows easy and secure integration of cashless payments into self-service hardware via Datacap’s payments engine. The iSelf TRIO is comprised of a PIN pad, NFC contactless reader, and a card insertion reader.

Datacap’s NETePay routes card payment data directly to the credit card processor, completely isolating Erba and greenbox from having to interact with sensitive cardholder data.
