Acceptance Rate and Terms

Describe how you plan to accept PR$. Most businesses will accept a percentage of the sale eg 20% or 45%. Set your rate so that the CN$ portion of the sale will cover your CN$ costs. You may also restrict PR$ to certain lines, times, or days, or use different percentages for different products or times. It's up to you. The better you make the deal for PR$ holders though, the more likely they will come to your business to spend their PR$.

I agree to accept PR$ at these rates and terms: (required)


There is a one-time registration fee of PR$100 per FTE (full-time-equivalent employee) to PRMS to cover costs of local co-ordination and training, printing of PR$ bills and promotional materials.

Business Terms of Participation

I understand that a negative account in PR$ is equivalent to the issue of gift certificates or other promissory notes by the account holder, and that the issuer is obliged to accept PR$ while their account balance is negative. Therefore, to withdraw from the program, a business must earn sufficient PR$ to return their account balance to zero.

I agree to these basic principles:

  1. To cherish and promote the common good
  2. To choose and encourage sustainable local production, local businesses and local non-profits wherever possible
  3. To build relationships which strengthen our community and its resilience

PRMS will:

  • promote the PR$
  • recruit businesses, non-profits and individuals
  • add new account-holders
  • keep records of transactions
  • provide administrative support to account-holders

PRMS has the authority to:

  • set and administer fees, if required
  • reverse a transaction from one account-holder’s account to another in the event of a discrepancy
  • refuse to record a transaction considered inappropriate
  • terminate an account where there is misuse of the PR$ system
  • transfer PR$ from one user's account to another's on the authority of the account-holder making payment.

Liability of PRMS to any account-holder for damages suffered is limited to that caused by wilful default.


PR$ account-holders agree to the recording of any information they supply and to the holding of all such information on computers. This information will be visible to Registrars and to others with Admin access to the computer systems.

The PR$ system maintains these types of information about account-holders:

  • Contact information
  • Business or non-profit description details
  • Transaction details
  • User-created advertisements

Here's how we will use and reveal this information:

  • Account-holders’ contact information may be supplied to other PR$ users for trading purposes.
  • Business and non-profit description details and advertisements may be publicly advertised
  • Transaction details will not be disclosed except to the account-holders involved in the transaction.

If there is a legitimate reason for keeping certain information secret (e.g. physical address of a women's shelter), please let us know in the comments box at the end of this form.

Neither the Powell River Money Society nor its agents can guarantee confidentiality of information supplied by account-holders, nor will the Powell River Money Society or its agents be held liable for any breach of confidentiality once information has been legitimately disclosed.


Signing and returning this form to the Powell River Money Society (PRMS) authorizes PRMS to transfer PR$ from your account to the non-profit accounts you have specified above for your initial donations, and to the PRMS account for the registration fee. You will receive monthly statements of transactions on your PR$ account. If you or your bookkeeper have any questions, please contact us at

PRMS is authorized to use the information provided above in support of the Powell River $ program.
