Faster Payments for the Lending Industry

Dwolla empowers lenders to eliminate the manual processes and outdated payment systems that negatively impact payment speed, efficiency and security, and borrower experience.

Industry Challenges

Lenders have to find a way to meet the changing expectations of borrowers while eliminating operational inefficiencies and reducing security risks.

Changing Borrower Expectations
Meeting borrower experience expectations is difficult when using manual processes and outdated payment methods, leading to struggles with borrower acquisition and retention.
Payment Security
Security concerns and risks can lead to costly fraud incidents or security breaches, as well as reputational damage and lack of trust between lending companies and their borrowers.
Operational Inefficiencies and Disparate Systems
When the digitization process is piecemeal and includes standalone systems, operational inefficiencies abound, and integrating payments with other business software becomes difficult, if not impossible.

Increased Payment Security

Since Dwolla is a tokenized solution, account and routing numbers are stored and transmitted with a token instead of having to pass the numbers themselves every time a payment is made. 

  • Replace sensitive data with tokens so no sensitive data is transmitted when a payment is initiated through Dwolla's API.
  • Decrease the risk of sensitive data being intercepted by bad actors.
  • Eliminate manual processes to reduce errors caused by human intervention and the number of people with access to and handling sensitive borrower data.

Faster, More Efficient Payment Processing

Automation and A2A payments through Dwolla replace time-consuming and error-prone manual processes (like returns handling) and outdated payment systems. This saves lenders valuable time and resources, improves cash flow and increases loan repayment predictability.

  • Unlock simple and easy connection and data transmission between business systems (accounting software, ERP, etc.).
  • Associate payments initiated through the Dwolla API with records in other business systems and allow for automated reconciliation.
  • Get real-time updates on payment statuses and help to quickly and easily identify issues (such as ACH returns) that require manual intervention.
