Summer is in full swing, which means that community supported agriculture (CSA) programs are busy providing people with fruits and vegetables that are in season and straight from the farm.
Dwolla is great for food co-ops, CSAs, and farmers’ markets. By accepting Dwolla payments, farmers can stop running to the bank to cash checks, while also adding to their bottom line by cutting out the high fees associated with credit cards.
How CSAs can use Dwolla:
- Customers can pay online or with their smartphone via the mobile app (iOS or Android).
- Members can pay for CSA subscriptions by setting up a recurring payment.
- Request payments from customers by simply typing in their email or phone number associated with their Dwolla account.
CSAs and marketplaces such as Plovgh, Annie’s Buying Club, Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance, Bells Bend Neighborhood Farms, Wabi Sabi Farm, and Featherstone Fruits and Vegetables are all using Dwolla to accept payments. As always, there is no cost to set up an account, with the only fee being 25 cents on transactions over $10 (under $10 is free).
