Buy big-name gift cards using Dwolla from the ION Rewards mobile app

You can now use Dwolla to buy gift cards to places such as Barnes & Noble, Land’s End, Brookstone, The Limited and Adidas thanks to Sionic Mobile’s ION Rewards, with plans to roll out the program to include 50 national brands by the end of the year. I wrote about ION in June of last year, highlighting their awesome Dwolla integration.

Make purchases within the app using Dwolla, a credit card or your ION reward points (which has a cash equivalent). All gift cards can be redeemed in-store, and some of them can be redeemed online.

Enough talking. Let’s check out how easy it is to use:

Find the store that you’d like to purchase a gift card from, and enter the amount you’d like to put on the card.

Enter your Dwolla PIN, and boom you have your gift card!

Any time you pay with Dwolla, you earn an additional 0.25% on top of the normal 1% IONs you earn with every purchase.

Create your ION Rewards account by downloading the iOS or Android app. Right now you get 5,000 IONs ($5) when you make your first purchase, another 500 IONs every time you check out with a new merchant, PLUS the 1.25% of the total price if you pay with Dwolla!

 

 

10 Most Innovative Dwolla Integrations for Small Businesses

10 most innovative Dwolla integrations

Over the course of my career at Dwolla, I’ve been amazed at how many talented individuals and companies have used Dwolla’s API to build beautiful products that help small businesses achieve more in affordable ways. Here are some of our favorite products built for small businesses (both online and brick and mortar) that have integrated Dwolla:

Accounting

FreeAgent

FreeAgent provides you and your business with everything you need to keep track of finances, such as estimates, time tracking, invoicing, expense reporting, banking, accounting and taxes. Perfect for freelancers, FreeAgent cost a flat $24 per month, which includes unlimited everything – invoices, contacts, upgrades and support.

Loyalty Rewards Programs

Koala Pay

Koala Pay helps merchants turn sales into cost-effective, social and even profitable campaigns. They’ve created a service that runs on top of Dwolla payments and lets merchants create and reward their customers with gift cards, discounted items and giveaways.

ION Rewards

A program that not only rewards your customers for doing business with you, but also rewards you for signing up your customers. Customers can use credit cards, cash and Dwolla, but earn bonus ION points when using Dwolla.

Gift Card Services

GiftRocker

GiftRocker makes it easy for businesses to sell digital gift cards through their website, Facebook or in-store on eco-friendly paper. This makes it simple for companies that can’t afford the costly, traditional plastic cards. GiftRocker offers a mobile wallet for both businesses and their customers, and can be used to sell tickets to events, prepaid packs, promotions, and more.

Software

Allowd

Create sub-accounts for your employees and give them as much (or as little) access as they need to your company’s Dwolla account. Allowd lets merchants control what each employee has visual access to, giving them the ability to verify Dwolla payments on behalf of the merchant without sharing login credentials to the company Dwolla account.

iWantPlanet + iWantPlaces

With iWantPlanet, customers can search for stores that accept the payment methods they want to use. You can browse through pictures of merchandise, descriptions and ratings from other iWantPlanet users. On the merchant side, iWantPlaces looks and functions as a complete Point of Sale (POS) system. Within the merchant app are statistics on top sale items, order time frames, sales reports, tax reports and more. It also includes the ability to send out promotions to current and potential customers.

eCommerce Payment Gateways

Spreedly Core

Spreedly Core has built a payment platform designed specifically with merchants and developers in mind. By supporting over 45 different payment gateways, from the likes of .Net to Braintree, Spreedly Core is on its way to becoming somewhat of a super gateway to accepting payments. Spreedly Core supports Dwolla as a payment option, right alongside gateways like PayPal and Stripe.

Retail POS Services

Change

Change is a POS system built for the iPad. It’s ideal for small, independent businesses: coffee shops, bars and quick-serve restaurants. Growing businesses look to Change when they want to upgrade their POS without upgrading their bill each month. Did we mention that they have a beautiful, seamless Dwolla integration?

retailcloud

retailcloud provides owners and managers a single sign-on to access, control and update all aspects of running a retail business, like daily analytics, real-time inventory tracking and, of course, the POS. retailcloud supports paperless receipts, a Google Shopping integration, cross/up-selling capabilities at the register, and a Dwolla integration.

Affiliate & Referral Programs

Ambassador

Ambassador is a slick platform that allows business to track social interaction and offer incentives to those already loving your business. Ambassador payouts are a piece of cake with Dwolla – not having to live with the restrictions of percentage-based fee models opens up an opportunity to make a lot more money for ambassadors.
