  • Planned
Delayed payments are on our API roadmap for the first half of 2012. Apologies that we don't have more specifics at this time.

Here are a couple of users who've expressed interest on this forum, but there have been many others, so I thought I'd add it here as its own idea/feature request to the forum.

Specifically would love to see payments along the lines of Paypal's pre-approval: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cm...

Thinking of the usecase like kickstarter for example.

Love the idea for a pre-approval. With a hold on the account and then a call to send once the job is done.

Will Dwolla be adding an escrow option (delayed payments) for users that also are facilitators? I am building a marketplace and love the idea of Dwolla, but need the capabilities of escrow.

I looked around on here and on the web and only found a "we might do that soon" answer (but wasn't on this site).

Will/does Dwolla have an option for a recurring payments like a monthly or yearly subscription?

what's the status of subscription payments (Feb 2012)?.

From the question, it is unclear whether you're asking about multi-payments/ recurring payments in general or via the API.

If the first


Do you have a Dwolla account? Multi-Payments can be easily setup from an option in the man navigation once you log into your Dwolla account.

You'd want to go to our Dwolla help/support to find out about that (not here which is the API/developer forum) : http://help.dwolla.com (just search 'recurring')

If the later


I merged your question into the Dwolla discussion on this planned API functionality.

OK this topic does look like it's the same thing. Don't think it came up when I searched -- or I missed it. Sadly I can't offer Dwolla payments for my users until this feature is complete.

I'm looking for users to be able to make recurring payments to me without them having to go into their dwolla acct and set it up.

Is there some sort of API or some planned to support sites with reoccurring billing models?

I want my customers to be able to order items when they are "out of stock". I'm planning on including a message when they attempt to buy an out of stock item to say that it is out of stock and will be shipped as soon as it becomes available. In addition to this, I want these "out of stock" items NOT to be charged to the customer until the item has been shipped. Is there a way to delay charging items until they ship, and can this be automated somehow?

e.g. Item X is out of stock, so my website sends a message to DWOLLA saying : "This item is out of stock, I will confirm when to charge the customer for this Item X. Store the user's information until I click the button that says "shipped, you may now charge"." Or something like that.

We were thinking for a layaway setup where a customer would approve future debits that they couldn't then go back and refuse at a later date.

I just wanted to tag on with my specific use case:

I've got an online farmers market system used by growers across the country. They take orders from customers, go out and harvest, and then get the products to the customers. Customers would like to authorize a payment via Dwolla when they place the order, but not be charged until the product is received. In the meantime, the price can be adjusted for any number of reasons (such as rabbits getting in the carrots).

I'm doing this now using Stripe for credit/debit cards, and it works like a charm. But there are people who don't want to use cards and pay right from their bank account. Once Dwolla gets this feature, they'll be able to.

Does this escrow or delayed payment future feature have a tentative road map or release date?

Looking hard at using Dwolla for recurssive payments. I read a lot of talk & prioritization for this, but I haven't found any updates in many months. Any word yet for a recursive API?

Thanks!
