"Use Dwolla for ACH Payouts to our Suppliers in our B2B Ecommerce website"

What do you like best?

Good support, good product, and great people. There is tons of documentation which is great.

What do you dislike?

I understand the goal of the API and its design, but it ends up being over engineered and hard to use. The Java support is also pretty bad. As a counter example, Stripe's API was extremely easy to understand and use for us. The documentation isn't as detailed as it should be in spots. Would like the dashboard to be more detailed and allow tracing through of all relationships with all available details for each entity. More searching and filtering options on the dashboard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure your developers properly utilize Dwolla's fantastic Slack support when building your integration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Dwolla to make mass payouts to our Suppliers on our B2B ecommerce website. They have really dialed in making ACH easy from a regulation stand point. We have benefited from being abstracted from the complexity and antiquated-ness of the ACH system while still being able to realize the benefits of ACH.

"Solid developer experience"

What do you like best?

Payments are hard without a robust, fully working and fully documented sandbox. Dwolla API documentation is fantastic and things like webhooks work, test cases for failure modes are well thought out, and the forum support is available and responded to quickly.

What do you dislike?

Really, nothing. ACH is not an easy infrastructure to cope with, but Dwolla makes it as easy as it can be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We deliver the savings of ACH (vs credit card) as customer savings at the pump. Any fraud or process losses are extremely problematic for us, and Dwolla has been very helpful in working through the various issues that inevitably arise when you have hundreds of thousands of users. We have had no meaningful scale issues either, which is a big deal in this domain.

"Very easy to use"

What do you like best?

Dwolla has partners such as MintVine that give you bonuses when you use Dwolla to receive payments from them.

What do you dislike?

When I initially set up the account, it asked me to answer some verification questions. I'm assuming that they pulled these questions from some public records somewhere but some of the questions were asking me about the birth dates of people I have never even heard of. In the end, I had to upload a photo of a government-issued ID. I think that they should either pull these questions from a more accurate source or just skip the questions and make everyone upload ID's.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Some customers or vendors seem uncomfortable when I ask them to use Dwolla since it's not as well known as some of its competitors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to quickly send and receive money from participating vendors I work with.

"Not bad in the youth sports world"

What do you like best?

Dwolla simplifies my ability to have my youth sports program received payments for registration directly through our website with the least headache.

What do you dislike?

The software works directly through my website and seems to be a one size fits all answer. I wish the Dwolla could store the CC numbers of our members who chose payment plan options and automatically charge their CC.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dwolla is a nice choice for simplicity if it's part of your built in system. Otherwise I would do more research on what a product that specifically met your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software streamlined our process for online registration for as many as 300 youth athletes each year. It also interfaces with our site to help with managing payments.

"Great experience "

What do you like best?

I like how Dwolla's API is easy to integrate with and sending funds through ACH is really easy.

What do you dislike?

Biggest dislike (so far) would be the time from setting up a bank account to checkout.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am making rental payments easier, especially without having to write checks. Dwolla allows the end user to seamlessly connect their bank account and automate rental payments.

"Dwolla makes payment processing easy."

What do you like best?

The lack of transaction fees is great. The way that it works with ACH is also good. The api and code examples are all very concise and useful.

What do you dislike?

I think that the lack of SDKs outside of the 4 or 5 major languages that they provide via the dwolla github account is unfortunate. I would like to see a Golang wrapper eventually.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ACH payments was the problem, and with dwolla it was easy to solve, including recurring payments.
