There are 27.7 million businesses in the United States, and how you find one of Dwolla’s 15,000 has never been easy. Today, for the first time ever, we’re changing that.

Introducing, Dwolla Places

What does it do?

  1. “Places” tab: The new interface acts as a directory, allowing users to search and explore their local merchant communities, informing them who takes Dwolla and who doesn’t.
  2. Introduces the “Want” button: This feature, available only inside “Places,” currently provides users with a social tool to communicate their interest in paying with Dwolla to perspective merchants.
  3. Public pages: Now, every venue and location listed also has its own public Page. For non-Dwolla merchants, it provides people a platform to kickoff recruitment campaigns and track the number of requests made to the merchant. For existing Dwolla merchants, it’s another way to be found and receive payments. For consumers, it’s an easy way to recruit Dwolla users and non-users to your cause.

Let’s try it out… Click the image below, and then the “Want” button to let this totally random public Dwolla Place know you want the Dwolla experience.
