Creating a Business Verified Customer That is a Government Agency

I was looking into using Dwolla to help manage payments to users. However, one potential source of payments would be a government agency. This seems like it might be a problem when defining a Business Verified Customer. I suppose a Non-Profit could be used but I don’t want screw things up when financial regulation could be involved.

Below is the list provided in the documentation for businessType options

Sole proprietorships soleProprietorship No
Unincorporated association soleProprietorship No
Trust soleProprietorship No
Corporation corporation Yes
Publicly traded corporations corporation Yes
Non-profits corporation or llc Yes
LLCs llc Yes
Partnerships, LP’s, LLP’s partnership Yes
My Customer’s business structure Dwolla businessType values Controller required?
Sole proprietorships soleProprietorship No
Unincorporated association soleProprietorship No
Trust soleProprietorship No
Corporation corporation Yes
Publicly traded corporations corporation Yes
Non-profits corporation or llc Yes
LLCs llc Yes
Partnerships, LP’s, LLP’s partnership Yes

Hi @mmaranda – thanks for posting!

When onboarding a Government agency as a Business Verified customer, you would have to select “Business Type” of “Corporation” and the relevant “Industry Classification Id” from under the Business Classification of “Government”.

Hope that helps! Please let us know if you come across any questions!

Thank you very much.
