We’ve added email to the OAuth scope. This makes it incredibly easy for Dwolla account holders to sign in and sign up for new services by reducing the amount of information you’re asked to re-enter.
Below, we walk through two examples of platforms making it easier to sign up with Dwolla, all within a simple and secure API. One is Discourse, a platform we utilize for hosting conversations between Dwolla customers and our own customer support and technical staff. The other is Shift, who developed a debit card that allows you to spend from your Dwolla balances wherever Visa is accepted.
Here’s what the two mentioned examples look like:
- Sign Up
2. Choose Dwolla
3. Provide Dwolla email address and password, then “Allow” the requested permissions (Note: Email is now apart of this OAuth scope)
4. One additional click for creating a Discourse account
- Connect Dwolla
2. Log in by Providing your Dwolla email address and password, and “Allow” the requested permissions.
3. Your email address is pre-filled into the form required to sign up for a Shift card.
For developers, requesting an email address to help users more quickly sign up / sign into a service requires a simple request of the email scope in the initial OAuth authorization request.
As a user, you can always revoke authorization permissions to any platform that you’ve granted access to your information. Just log into your Dwolla account and changing your App Permissions settings.
