By: Dwolla,

Our API allows you to do a very simple thing: make payments.

Businesses, merchants, financial institutions, and government agencies at all levels have come to know Dwolla as a feature-rich payment platform that emphasizes security, efficiency and simplicity. This ranges from a proprietary real-time transfer protocol to the ability to disburse thousands of payments with a single request, and as of last Thursday, the unprecedented removal of a per-transaction fee.

However, Dwolla also required those businesses and agencies’ customers to create an account with Dwolla in order to use the platform. Where this works for many, we’ve also heard a reluctance of many when asked to introduce another brand to their payment experience.

It’s your customers who cost you real dollars to both acquire and establish trust in your brand. They are willing to give you their money, and we appreciate that came with a lot of work. In response to this feedback we’re introducing a payment experience that allows you to retain control of the end-user experience you have carefully considered, measured, and improved upon over time.

With Dwolla’s API, you can integrate our suite payment tools into your service while maintaining the ability to customize the end user experience.

Here’s a taste of what’s included with the Dwolla API:
