Integrate My Shift4Shop Store with Dwolla

This guide will show you how to integrate your store with Dwolla.

Adding the Payment Method

When adding the Dwolla Payment method, you will be required to enter your Dwolla ID, Key and Secret Key. The following is where you can get this information:

  1. Sign into your Dwolla Account.

  2. Click on your Dwolla profile picture.

A small drop-down will then show you your Dwolla account number. Write this account number down as this is the ID you will need for the integration.

3. Now click on App Permissions on the top right menu (next to your image).

4. Click Developers, edit the settings for your registered applications here.

5. Click Create Application.

You will be taken to a page with a list of fields to populate. These are various permissions needed in order to use Dwolla via API. Most of the fields are optional and may be left blank since Shift4Shop's integration already has these settings preconfigured for you. However the first field "Application Name" is required.

We suggest just using your store's name for easy reference.

6. After configuring the Application settings, Accept the terms, enter your pin and click Create Application.

On the subsequent page, you will see the Application Secret and Application Key which will be added to your Shift4Shop store's payment module.

7. Store this information as it will be needed for the payment module in your Shift4Shop store

8. Now, click on the Edit Features link located to the right of this area.

9. Set the Web Hook Notifications button to "Enabled."

10. Then enter the following as your "TransactionStatus URL."

Note: Make sure to use your store's SECURE URL in place of the "[]" section.

11. Finally, click on the Update Features button at the bottom of the page.

You may now proceed with the rest of this article.
