On March, 17th, 2020, Iowa Gov Kim Reynolds ordered all restaurants and bars in the state to shutdown through March, 31st, 2020, allowing drive-thru and curb-side pickup only. We know what kind of operational challenges this presents, and want to make it easier, faster, safer and more secure for small businesses to get paid during the mandatory shutdown.
We are offering free, no-frills online-payment websites to restaurants and businesses affected by the mandatory shut down. There are no setup, design or hosting fees. The payment processing company charges 2.9% + $.30 per transaction, but you pay us nothing. Ever.
Your website will remain online for two weeks past the end of the shut down to allow time for your customers to return. All payments are deposited into your account in two business days.
You simply take orders as normal, and provide your customers with an order number, a total amount, and your website address where they can make payments online. When they arrive to pick up their order, there’s no need to make change on the sidewalk.
We will first be offering this service to businesses in Lee County, Iowa so we can assess demand before offering the service to other areas. If you would like to be notified when our offering area expands, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
