Hot on the heels of Dwolla’s big Dwolla Credit news, WunWun on-demand delivery service has some news of its own. Starting today, users of the service will be able to pay with Dwolla, either through Dwolla’s cash-based payments system or the new Dwolla Credit system.
See, as it stands now, WunWun charges their own corporate cards to make purchases for users, and then bills the users’ credit cards later. This automatically shaves between 2.5 and 3 percent off of the company’s earnings.
With Dwolla, users can pay straight from their bank account or use Dwolla credit to start making purchases instantly. WunWun eats the ten-cent fee that comes with Dwolla’s usual checking account payments solution.
See, WunWun doesn’t always make money from users’ on-demand orders. Users can request anything from a store and pay outright, with absolutely free delivery.
For custom orders, things like Chipotle burritos, picking up something from the post office, or a courier service, users pay $20 plus the cost of the request.
However, for Store orders, WunWun has a deal in place with retailers that auto-picks preferred stores for orders (if the user allows it), creating partnerships with retailers as orders are placed. In fact, brands can advertise against orders, in a similar manner as Google ad words.
Since last month, WunWun has tripled the number of orders coming through each month from 3,000 to over 10,000 this month. In fact, the company did over $20,000 in orders in a single day this month.
WunWun is available on the App Store for $.99.
