How to search and delete customer?

Hi, I have question about handling the API in sandbox.

  1. When we search the customer, there are only element of firstName,lastName,businessName,and email. There is no unique ID, that may have multiple records. How do we find a unique record?
  2. Is there any API to delete a customer record?
    Thanks

Hi @closelate – thanks for posting!

  1. If you use the email search filter, you will be able to locate a Customer based that matches the unique email.
    Here’s an example:
    GET https://api.dwolla.com/customers?email=jane%40email.com
  2. While you can deactivate and suspend a Customer, the functionality to delete a Customer isn’t supported as per the data retention guidelines that Dwolla is subject to within the USA.

Hope that helps!

Thank you Shreya
I have another 2 questions

  1. How many customers can be created under one master account?
    2, can Unverified Customers transfer money to master account?
    Thanks

Are there any limit to create new customer under one master account since we don’t support delete function?

1. How many customers can be created under one master account?

  • There isn’t a limit to the number of Customers that can be created! :slight_smile:

2. can Unverified Customers transfer money to master account?

  • This depends on the funds-flow you have. If you have the Receive funds flow, then yes, you can receive funds from Unverified Customers into your Master Account.
