The Dwolla API provides an interface to integrate the Dwolla payments platform into a software application. Dwolla is a payments processor that provides a web based platform which allows users to send, receive, and request funds from any other. Dwolla can be used to share money with friends through Facebook and Twitter. Users can also purchase goods and services through the web and mobile devices.
The API provides developers with the functionality to send, request, and retrieve account history and send money between Dwolla accounts. The API uses both REST and SOAP protocol and responses are formatted in XML or JSON.
