Bank Account Types with the Dwolla Platform

Dwolla has helped businesses expand the opportunities of their applications by supporting multiple types of bank accounts. Depending on the needs, businesses are able to leverage specific types of bank accounts that support various functionalities through an integration of Dwolla’s ACH payment API.

Checking/Savings Account

Dwolla has made the process of adding or verifying a bank funding source to an end user painless. With IAV or Plaid, a user can add their bank in seconds. These specific account types are attached to any Customer type as a default for all accounts.

Loan Account

Customer types that have had their identity verified can seamlessly send payments from their connected checking or savings account to pay down a balance on their loan account at another financial institution.
