Let’s Grow Together

We’re obsessed with transparency. There’s nothing more annoying (or disappointing) than finding hidden fees, which is why we don’t have any. 

We only make money when you sell something. We add a service fee to every transaction. These fees go directly towards building better products and tools for you, not for yachts and wild parties.

When we build great stuff that helps you be more successful, we will all be more successful. That’s the beauty of our partnership model.

Meet the Artisans Building Their Businesses on Castiron

"Castiron has gone above and beyond in their support for me and my growing company, from helping me build my online store, to following up when they find better ways for me to present my products, to their quick and helpful support."

Summer Kortkamp
Toasted Sugar, Chicago, IL

"I built my website in under an hour with Castiron. I loved that I could grow my email list and communicate with customers before I even launched my store."

Kimberly Goethe
Barcode by Hollywood, Atlanta, GA

"As soon as you log in, you can tell that Castiron is built to help people who sell food. They made creating an online store so easy that I built my entire shop, launched my business and made my first few sales in less than 24 hours. It was a piece of cake (pun intended)!"

Jessica Brady
Mother Hive, Oak Park, MI

“Castiron has given me the ability to process, categorize, and streamline the technical end of things so I can spend more time getting back to the other part of business that I love, creating."

Megan Boehm
Meggy's Bakeys, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

"When my friends and family told me that I should start selling my cakes, I wasn’t sure where to start. Before Castiron, I was taking orders really manually, through emails or texts or Facebook. Now I can send customers straight to my website, and I don’t have to worry about missing any details."

Katie Maschoff
Mill City Cooking Company, Minneapolis, MN

“Castiron just makes ordering so easy for my customers. Before, I had to manage cash or checks from my customers. Castiron is freeing up so much of my time, and allows me to focus on what I choose to focus on: improving the brand and the bread.”

Andy Anderson
Andy Anderson, Sourdough Heaven, Indianapolis, IN

“I realized that the barrier of having to DM or text me to order was holding a lot of potential customers back. Now that I have a professional online store and a simple ecommerce checkout, I'm seeing a huge increase in new customers and they appreciate how easy Castiron makes ordering.”

Ali Serpe
Kultured Kombucha, Indianapolis, IN

“I’ve been baking for years and when I made the decision to turn it into a business last year I tried a lot of different solutions to get my business up and running. Not only is Castiron the easiest, most effective tool I’ve used to sell online, but I also feel like they truly care about my journey and are here to support me.”

FAQs

Let’s get a few things out of the way by answering your most common questions below. Still have questions? Reach out to our team here.

How much does Castiron cost to use?

Castiron is free forever. We’re proud to always offer a free tier for culinary artisans to use to run their businesses.

What transaction fees does Castiron charge?

Castiron only makes money when you make money. We offer a flexible fee structure, where you have the option to absorb the 10% convenience fee yourself, pass it on to your customer, or split the fee with your customer. This fee allows us to continuously improve Castiron and add new features to make your life easier. This fee is separate from Stripe’s 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction payment processing fee. We share an in-depth breakdown of our fees here.

How will I get paid by Castiron?

We use Stripe's payment processing infrastructure to accept payments and ensure timely payouts to your bank account. Stripe will transfer money directly to your bank account.

Am I allowed to sell my food products online?

Please review your state and municipality’s cottage food rules and regulations to determine whether you are able to sell your products online.

Does Castiron deliver food for me?

No. Castiron is the engine that will drive your online store, but you’ll be responsible for all order fulfillment, whether that’s pickup, delivery or shipping.

Does Castiron connect to Venmo or PayPal for manual payments?

What am I allowed to sell on Castiron?

We’ve built our platform to cater to the needs of kitchen-based creators, making features like allergen disclosures and dietary information standard. Our artisans sell a wide range of products, from kombucha and cold-pressed juices to cupcakes and sourdough breads.

Can I use Castiron for pop-ups?

Absolutely! Many of our artisans use Castiron to facilitate pre-orders for in-person events. Pre-orders can help you plan how much to bring so you never waste food or run out of product.

Can I use Castiron at a farmers market?

Yes, many of our artisans use Castiron to take pre-orders before going to the market. This can help you make sure you don't over or under prepare!
