Sound interesting. Indeed the fees are very low. but it can be used for an online shop, like paypal is used?
I guess it depends on what platform you are using and if there are any plugins / extensions made for it yet (which I expect there will be since its getting popular).
If there isnt, and you want to get one going, then they also offer an API: https://developers.dwolla.com/
EDIT: Actually, it seems there were already developed: https://developers.dwolla.com/bd/carts
is it supported in India or Pakistan?
It supports only USA...
you are right. I will check if amember (I think that amember is the most used script for online shops) has integrated this payment method and post here about this. maybe someone else is interested with this.
where it says that? I didn't find this info.
Dwolla is a neat idea and the fees are low
But its not too realistic. The problem is you have to transfer money to Dwolla and the transfer money to the merchant. It simply slows down the transaction rate and that is why Credit cards are more versatile. In ecommerce you want the customer to purchase ASAP, not make them sign up for dwolla and make them wait to transfer funds to dwolla then finanly make the purchase. That might take a week for new users.
However, I think the best idea is to use both Dwolla and CC/paypal, that way you get the best of both worlds
I personally would love to save but i know my customers are impatient!
But is not happening same way with paypal? If you don't have founds, it will take money from your CC? For paypal, the transfer is instant. I doesn't happen the same with Dwolla?
It's been around for a while. Cool concept but I'm pretty sure it requires customers to have a Dwolla account. Everybody has a credit or debit card these days, but few have Dwolla accounts (or are willing to open one). So if you're going to offer it, don't depend on it as your sole payment methid.
true. but any alternative to paypal (to use it with as an additional payment processor) is welcomed. Especially when the fees are smaller compared to PP.
when you sign in, you will notice this..
just noticed it:
[h=2]"We require a valid U.S. phone number on file for your account."[/h]
they let you register, confirm email and only after that you see that message.
Too bad its US only. Otherwise, this is a great service
Until they go worldwide, they will never be a real competitor to paypal
People are lazy and don't want to be bothered setting up more than one online payment stream
