Tracking Transactions and Reconciling Bank Records

Correlation IDs allow businesses to easily track and reconcile payments by creating a common identifier between Dwolla and other systems.

Tracking Transactions and Reconciling Bank Records

In order to truly reap the benefits of automating payments, you need a single identifier to help you track payments from end-to-end across systems and help you close out payables and receivables in your systems. This is where correlation IDs come into play. Instead of having to build a process that matches payments in your system to Dwolla or bank payment IDs, you can build in an identifier (a correlation ID) to do that matching for you automatically.

The Correlation ID value can be specified on API requests to create a Dwolla Transfer or External Party resource. Whether you use this optional parameter to correlate internal transfers, order confirmation numbers, business IDs or even a timestamp, its simplicity provides a lot of power.

End-to-End Payment Visibility
Ensure payments can be tracked from initiation all the way through to completion. Using a Correlation ID improves the traceability of a transaction between two systems.
Automated Reconciliation
The Correlation ID eliminates manual intervention in the reconciliation process by linking the payment from your system to the automated webhook notifications as the payment status updates.
Searchable Within Dwolla’s API
Concerned about a transaction? Call the API using your Correlation ID to easily locate and view updates on any transaction in question.
