We now provide you the option to integrate your Foursquare profile into Dwolla to automate check-ins at your favorite merchants.

Opening several apps to check-in can be a bit obnoxious. That’s why in the new iOS app, which has been submitted to Apple, we’re letting Dwolla users connect to the location-based platform to create one check-out/check-in experience.

The simple process allows you to accrue points, gain rewards, earn badges, and maintain/pursue mayorships without ever opening the Foursquare app.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Buy/check-in
  2. … Really no other steps 🙂

How to connect to your Foursquare profile:

  1. Sign in at
  2. Head to “Settings” on the left-hand side panel
  3. Under “Settings,” select “Social Networks”
  4. Hit “Connect to Foursquare”

Here is what it looks like while logged in:

The same rules apply with Dwolla check-ins as they do Foursquare check-ins. If you mark private (aka “off the grid”), these check-ins count towards the Mayorship tally but will not unlock the Mayorship.

Now go have some fun!
