By connecting a bank account and creating savings goals, Astra is a financial savings app that empowers users to better manage their money and achieve more financial independence.
But to allow their users to move money between bank accounts, Astra needed:
- An established player in the financial ecosystem with existing financial relationships
- Robust developer documentation
- Dedicated support channels
Astra found Dwolla to enable ACH transfers between bank accounts.
“Dwolla offers a very solid product and one that has allowed us to do what we intended to do from the start, which is to go beyond just reporting numbers to people,” says Sam Morgan, Chief Product Officer at Astra. “We can offer something that can actually automate the movement of money on their behalf, and that functionality is reliant on the success of Dwolla.”
