Upload DBA Document

When a Business Verified Customer is placed in the document verification status, Dwolla will return a link in the API response after retrieving a Customer, which will be used by an application to determine if documentation is needed. A new Link Name of upload-dba-document was added to identify if documents are needed for a business’s DBA (Doing Business As) registration.

Our developer documentation walks through the identity verification process for Business Verified Customers within Dwolla’s API. This type of customer represents a business that intends to send or receive funds on a platform.

Key terminology for this Customer type includes:

  • Account Admin – The representative creating the business verified Customer on behalf of the business and Controller.
  • Controller – Any natural individual who holds significant responsibilities to control, manage, or direct a company or other corporate entity (i.e. CEO, CFO, General Partner, President, etc). A company may have more than one controller, but only one controller’s information must be collected
  • Beneficial Owner – Any natural person who, directly or indirectly, owns 25% or more of the equity interests of the company.

Use the Business Verified Customer Drop-in Component to get started.
