Dealing directly with a buyer
Using an inexperienced consultant or broker
Relying on your wholesaler to ﬁnd you a buyer
Costly Seller Mistakes:
Dealing directly with a buyer
I run a conﬁdential process and can bring in both chain
buyers and independent buyers to drive up your price.
Using an inexperienced consultant or broker
I have personally sold over 200 pharmacies. I am a
pharmacist, former multi-pharmacy owner and a
licensed and insured broker..
Relying on your wholesaler to ﬁnd you a buyer
You should never limit your number of buyers. Wholesalers
do not want to bring you buyers from other wholesalers
(who may pay much more). My ﬁduciary duty is to you.
The better you do, the better I do.
Selling pharmacies is all I do!

CURRENT PAYMENT TRENDS
Many consumers prefer community-based, independent pharmacies for their high-
touch approach and personalized care. At the same time, however, there’s an increasing
demand for added conveniences such as in-store or online shopping and curbside
pickup or at-home delivery. Pharmacies also find that customers want access to the
latest payment options such as text-to-pay, tap-to-pay, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
Keeping up with current payment trends may seem daunting — but Cardinal Health is
making it easy with its new Modern Payments Processing solution.
MODERN PAYMENTS PROCESSING – POWERED BY SQUARE
The Modern Payments Processing solution is the result of a collaboration between
Cardinal Health and Square. The two also worked closely with BestRx, the first
pharmacy software system to integrate with Square, to ensure the solution was
designed to meet the unique needs of independent pharmacies and their patients.
Using Square’s hardware, software, and card processing, Modern Payments Processing
handles all types of payments — from in-person at the point of sale to online and mobile.
This eliminates the need for multiple solutions and helps streamline operations for
an easier, more efficient experience. Plus, Square handles all payment fraud, risk, and
disputes. They are also Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified, which means payments
always comply with current regulations.
ENHANCED CUSTOMER SERVICE
With Cardinal Health’s Modern Payments Processing, pharmacies can funnel payments
through a single processor for the range of flexible payment options consumers expect
today. Cardinal Health also offers an e-commerce solution, Pharmacy Marketing
Advantage Commerce, that leverages Square’s Web Payments SDK. This allows
customers to place online orders through the local pharmacy, make payments, and
choose from their pharmacy’s delivery or pickup options. By integrating a range of
payment types through Square — pharmacies can reduce the time spent managing
several processing platforms, freeing them up to focus on delivering the personalized
care patients value so much.

and not present transactions and
