Payment Service: Dwolla integration

Started by Ben Parizek in Feature Requests | Idea

Xero integrates nicely with Bank Accounts, Credit Cards, and PayPal. I've found myself using one more institution lately which is saving me from credit card fees and allowing my to manage finances on the web. The product is Dwolla. It hooks up to your bank account and allows you to transfer money to other Dwolla members quickly and easily with a single, low transaction cost of .25 cents.

I'd love to offer my clients the ability to pay via Dwolla but currently, there is no easy way to synchronize Xero and Dwolla. I hope you consider adding Dwolla integration. It's userbase is probably a very similar crowd to those who are willing to use Xero, and it would help push forward the transition from old, lame products that don't integrate and cost too much to new, cloud-based products which integrate easily and keep expenses reasonable.

Hey everyone, thanks for your insights here. To set the expectation, Xero has an open API - which means there's opportunity for apps to develop an integration with us if they choose, and they can find info on this in our Developer Community.

With this available, we don't have intention of developing a direct integration ourselves right now (August 2021), however we'll keep an eye on interest here and let you know if this changes. 🙂
