Magento Extension: Updated

Our new developer evangelist intern, Gordon, has been hard at work these past couple of weeks. Today, his first big project rolls out: a long-awaited update to the Dwolla Magento eCommerce extension.

Our Magento extension was long due for a revamp – and this update definitely delivered it. Along with a whole lot of bug fixes, Gordon has implemented our Guest Checkout functionality, event listeners that carefully listen to transaction status change notifications from Dwolla, and logging features. So now, when your customers use their bank accounts to pay for their order, Magento will automatically update its order status as the Dwolla transaction status changes, while verifying the authenticity of the notifications, and alerting you in the order’s comments area when problems arise.

We’ve written an easy to follow setup guide for you guys. Check it out here

Here is the extension’s homepage:

And lastly, we’ve open-sourced this extension. It’s available on our Github account:

    I have Dwolla set to use “Pending” order status in the Admin, but when a customer places an order it goes into “Processing” immediately. It doesn’t update the order to “Processing” after the check clears so we get a bunch of bounced checks all the time!

    Apparently Magento has removed this module from Magento Connect… the link is broken and I can’t find any Dwolla extensions when I search. What’s up?
