How do I sign up for an account?

You can create a free Dwolla account by visiting dwolla.com/register. Below is a video that will walk you through the registration steps one by one.


 

Business accounts


For business accounts, we ask for your business type (LLC, Sole Proprietorship, etc.), classification (education, retail, etc.), and general business information. We also ask for your primary address, a business representative’s information, and have you set a 4-digit PIN. The last step is reading and accepting Dwolla’s legal agreements.

Once you’re inside your account, we encourage you to add a funding source to make the most of your Dwolla account. This way, you can move money more efficiently into the Dwolla network (or into your bank account)
   

Non-profit accounts


For non-profit accounts, we ask for some general organization information, address, and details about an organization representative. We’ll also have you set a 4-digit PIN. The last step is reading and accepting Dwolla’s legal agreement

Once you’re inside your account, we encourage you to add a funding source to make the most of your Dwolla account. This way, you can move money more efficiently into the Dwolla network (or into your bank account).
 

Helpful info for all accounts

  • After you create your account, we highly recommend you verify your email address by clicking the link inside the verification email we send you. While optional for most account activity, we do require a verified email address in order to receive funds sent to your email address, and to update your password.
  •  If you will just be receiving funds then you may want to enable our Auto-Withdraw feature. This will make it so when you receive funds, they will automatically start the process to your bank account as opposed to you having to log in and manually withdraw every time. You can do this by going to your "Settings" gear in the upper right hand side of your dashboard, selecting "Features", and enabling the Auto-Withdraw feature.
