Aptly named, for exactly what it helps your business do: Get started.

Businesses of all sizes have to launch. Since launching the Dwolla Platform, we’ve focused many of our efforts on helping fast-growing companies move money. Our Scale plan is perfect for companies looking for a consistent monthly bill with a set number of transactions. While our Enterprise plan is a customizable, white-glove approach to helping complex businesses move money.

Start is a very different plan. There are no monthly minimums or long-term commitments. The Start plan is ideal for businesses who want an out-of-the-box, pay-as-you-go solution to send and receive money.

In many ways Start focuses on the same functionality as the original Dwolla, but with one key difference: It’s white label out-of-the-box. With Start, you can build your own application and integrate with the API or you can transact within the easy-to-use dashboard without any development required. As with all plans on the Dwolla Platform, you can add to your team as needed and easily manage user permissions and access.

To account for some of the financial regulations that come with integrating with the U.S. banking system, all of our Start customers will go through our streamlined application approval process. It makes baking in the requirements of moving money within the ACH network far more straightforward, helping you get to market faster.

When your application is submitted, a Dwolla representative will reach out with any clarifying questions to help get you live.

We’re currently rolling out Start to select businesses as a part of the beta program. Beta offers you a simple way to test drive our pre-release features. The feedback you provide will help make the Dwolla Platform even better.

Our mission is to build the ideal platform to move money. We are committed to helping businesses of all sizes start and scale their growth. Compare all the plans on the Dwolla Platform here.
