Integrating with Dwolla

Kidfund is a group savings application allowing parents, friends and family to contribute to the financial well-being of a child by enabling funds to be transferred to a savings account for the child. But with limited developer support, Kidfund needed to overcome user on-boarding concerns when connecting a funding source to initiate a transaction.

Kidfund integrated with Dwolla using two developers and Dwolla’s dedicated support team. They were up and running within their projected timeline, and exceeded their projected account balances by 20%.

“ACH is not a simple process to understand. If you told me I had to deal with SFTPing fixed-width text files to a bank or the Federal Reserve, I would probably run. But Dwolla takes all of that complexity and wraps it up behind a well-documented API that does exactly what it says it does.”
