I am new to Dwolla and looking to integrate your services with my website for my users with the API. I am doing some testing and just trying to get a handle on all the options available.
A very simple question that I can’t seem to get to the bottom of is what is the difference between a “Customer” and an “Account”?
In the sandbox I am able to create a customer of “type” personal and the response I am getting is successful and that the customer is “verified” etc. Is that the same as creating an account that I can add a funding source to and then send a payment? If so, I don’t get it because I never had to create a password for the “customer” record but I know for a Dwolla account you would have to create a password with it.
I know this is probably a rookie question but a little overview about how customers and accounts relate/differ would be much appreciated!
