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.
Build your business with our simple ecommerce and marketing tools — for free.
We only make money when you make money.
No listing fees. No subscription fees. No limits.
We recommend passing this fee on to your customers, making Castiron free to you. You can also choose to absorb this fee.

"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."
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."
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)!"
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."
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."
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, 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.”
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.”
Lisa Fay Bakes, Narberth, PA

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.
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 or pass it on to your customer (which we recommend). 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.
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.
Please review your state and municipality’s cottage food rules and regulations to determine whether you are able to sell your products online.
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.
You can open your free Castiron store at welcome.castiron.me.
Today, all transactions on Castiron are powered by Stripe. We’re always exploring new ways to facilitate transactions, so keep an eye out for future additions!
