Has anyone used Dwolla yet.


It is like paypal but fees are 25 cents a transaction rather than a percentage.
this sounded interesting,
i dug around their site for how it sets up in shopping carts, i guess it only works with the few that are listed under developers/carts.
which all have their owns set of fees. like $30/month for starters. and a % of each sale...pffft.

the 1st one ,shopify, has a 'gateway' page listing dozens of other services, which may be similar to Dwolla...i got overwhelmed at this point and will check it all out when i remake my site..

looking again at dwolla. they do have a "hub" page you can add on your website or facebook etc for people to send or request money. and that is free.
pretty cool,needs further study

the issue i see is in order to get paid people will have to go create a new account on this thing, and link their personal bank account(s) to it(which will take a few days to clear).
most would rather use their credit card,or already are use to using paypal. who's heard of dwolla,or can even pronounce it right ?
with CC/paypal there are also measures/protections in place for customers and merchants to use for issues that arise. dwolla seems like it's a direct wire transfer with "no backsies" ?

i like that 25c flat fee though.

are you using it currently?
I set up an account. My bank details were not required.
It sounds like a real credit card company killer.
That is a good thing because they are EVIL.

Here is an article on Dwolla:
I just set up an account too. The process was clean and simple. After reading over much of the site I liked what was presented. Hopefully this will grow exponentially and put a damper on the consumer disadvantage offered to us by commercial banks.
Only in the US, Pity!
still not available in Canada, pity.
I now have a dwolla account.

How do people send me money? I told it my email address - that's how paypal does it.


And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
