“The Dwolla sandbox environment allowed us to get up and running in production very quickly. There were no surprises when we went live and that’s ideally what you’re looking for.”
“Having the ability to build in Dwolla’s fully functioning sandbox environment is huge for a team that is wanting to make the investment in Dwolla but needs to validate that it is going to be the right fit for what they are doing. The sandbox validated Dwolla as a fit.”
CEO & Co-Founder of LoanWell
“The Dwolla Sandbox left us with no surprises. Everything worked as expected and as we tested it. Once we moved into production, we didn’t see any differences or changes, which was great. Sometimes different environments can produce different results but Dwolla worked really well.”
CEO & Co-Founder of Zirtue
