Join "Downtown Dollars" as a Participating Business 

Our goal is to get hundreds of businesses in downtown Nashville to accept the "Downtown Dollars" E-Gift Card and allow customers the convenience of shopping, eating and playing exclusively downtown, ensuring that local dollars are spent locally.

Becoming a vendor is easy:

Step 1: Click HERE and scroll to the bottom of the site to "Become a Participating Business"

Step 2: Run the $0.10 Activation Card you receive in your confirmation email to link your POS to the closed MasterCard network. 

Step 3: That's it! Check our site to make sure your business appears in the list of redeemable locations.
