I am a merchant accepting Dover Dollars, how does this work?
Dover Dollars are like any other check you would receive. The check is made payable to your establishment and deposited to your business bank account. If a patron is using a check that is more than the purchase, you would accept the check for the full amount and give back cash for the remaining value. If a member of your staff took a check that is outdated, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will replace it for you.
If you are a merchant and not currently on the list of accepting locations, please email email@example.com and we will be glad to add you to the list!
