Can Dwolla be integrated with Ebay


(Luray Martin) #1

I sell on Ebay and would love to be paid with Dwolla. Is there a way to do it and if not can it be added. Thanks

Thanks for the question and support Luray! At this time there is no Dwolla/Ebay integration, and they have some policies in place preventing additional payment methods (http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/accepted-payments-policy.html). Obviously we would love the opportunity to be a payment option but as you can imagine those types of discussions take time. I will make sure to add your name to the list of supporters for this functionality.

Thanks again Luray!

It looks like they break it up into:

  • allowed
  • restricted (still allowed but apparently for specific purposes. Dwolla should fit here)
  • not allowed

And work hard to stop merchants from going outside the suggested path. While I’m sure you could add a “Dwolla accepted” in the auction like I’ve seen some other people do it will always require a bit more work with a lot more savings.

The categories outlined there for “restricted” payment forms by ebay is:

Motors > Powersports
Motors > Other Vehicles & Trailers

The next obvious question might be, how does one suggest a new built in payment method to eBay? :slight_smile: The help section doesn’t turn up a lot.

Can Dwolla be integrated? O yes. Easily.

Is it natively supported by eBay today? Unfortunately not. The more they hear that their customers want it though the more likely they are to make it happen!

Thanks for your responses. Sounds like I need to bug Ebay about it.

Interested in ebay integration too.

Also VERY interested in accepting Dwolla payments on eBay. I love the idea of getting away from the monopoly PayPal has on the market right now. As it stands, eBay and PayPal now exist as two separate entities and I believe it would only be in the interested of eBay share holders for this integration to be made.
