  • Squareholder

    Incredible. We can’t wait to try this out!

  • Ari

    How does this look on the receiving end? Do those users have to have a Dwolla account?

    • Ryan Lewis

      I’m really interested in hearing a response to these questions.

    • CaityJones

      Assuming that an employer were to send a payment to you by inserting your email address, you would receive an email saying that [sender’s name] has sent you a payment, with a link to register for a Dwolla account if you do not have one already. In most cases, employers are asking their employees to register for a Dwolla account and link it to their bank account before they start sending them their payment via Dwolla. This way employees can easily direct the payment to their bank account manually by logging in (to Dwolla) and making a withdraw, or automatically by setting up auto-withdraw.

      • CaityJones

        In short, yes those users would have to sign up for a Dwolla account if they do not have one already.

        • Anthony Toles

          I like it alot!

        • Moe

          What if we want a more seamless user experience. Can Dwolla provide us an API so that we can give you user information and you open an account for them, without them knowing Dwolla was involved in the first place?

          • CaityJones

            Currently, the Dwolla API doesn’t support this as an option.

      • Brad Wilson

        Will there ever be a service that will allow us to pay employees the way we do now, which is using a service that helps us with taxes, etc?

        • CaityJones

          Someone could easily create a payroll and human resources solution on top of Dwolla, but right now it’s not our core competency (a great idea though). I am excited to see the way our tools are expanded upon in the future.

  • Maureen

    What countries and currencies are supported with the masspay feature?

    • CaityJones

      Hi Maureen – Dwolla is only servicing US accounts and currency at this time. However, we are looking forward to expanding internationally in the future.

      • Dobrosław Żybort

        Maybe you can made same site like Stripe: . Users can register there and will be notified when Dwolla will be available in their country.

        • CaityJones

          Very cool, and a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

          • James Matayoshi

            Hi Caity we are developing an web based platform allowing employers and merchants linked together, allowing their employees to shop at merchants with credit loaded by employer. Can we linked Dwolla to collect from employer and make payment to merchants, less our commission on the Dwolla payment gateway?

          • CaityJones

            Hi James, Sounds like you’ve already connected with a Dwolla sales rep to discuss possible options. Let me know if I can be of anymore assistance.

  • dr-gc

    I think that you answered this in a prevous post, but does dwolla have a money transmitters license in all 50 states directly, or are they leveraging off of someone elses license.

    • CaityJones

      Dwolla works with our financial partners to move money – our terms of service is the best way to understand how we are structured.
