Has anyone used Dwolla to accept payments?

This is sort of out of the b&b office and more general usage.  Specifically, I am helping with a charity fundraiser that wants to sell tickets online.  All the avenues I've explored take a % ... and the merchant fees for those accounts ... make this not a happy arrangement. 

 I was thinking about Square ... but still I see percentage fees.

I looked at paypal and their fees for these tickets ... at just $15 and $20 pricing ... are going to quickly eat into their profits after expenses

 I found Dwolla that charges just a 25 cent fee per transaction. no fee for under $10  and this instant feature which I don't quite understand

Dwolla Instant: An opt-in feature

Monthly participation fee for Dwolla Instant: $3.00

Late fee: $5.00

 

but i'd never heard of Dwolla before.

Anyone?

Thank you.

It sounds too good to be true.   That makes me suspicious.  

In any event,   I wouldn't want to use it for B&B transactions.  I prefer to have a credit card number on file in case of damages etc.   We don't even accept cash or checks anymore.   My rate has enough padding in it to absorb the processing costs.

Looks interesting! Might be worth diving into a little deeper!
