Live with Dwolla FiSync
Financial Plus Credit Union is excited to announce that we are the first credit union to go live with Dwolla FiSync integration. Dwolla FiSync integration gives FPCU members automatic account verification to the convenience of Dwolla's mobile payments, the peer-to-peer experience of Facebook and Twitter, and perform purchases with select merchants using location-based Spots.
Some of you may be asking, what the heck is Dwolla? Some may have heard the name before but brushed it off because they had no idea what it was. And some probably already have it and use it daily. It doesn't matter which group you fall into, Financial Plus is pairing up to make things easier for our members.
Dwolla allows members to send and receive cash through social networks, e-mail or by location. The way to use Dwolla is simple. Sign up for an account, which is totally free with no hidden fees. Members of Financial Plus can sign up for Dwolla and have their account automatically linked so you can start paying friends and places that are also using it.
Many Des Moines area businesses are accepting Dwolla payments now and it's quickly spreading nation-wide. Individuals are also using it to transfer money with friends without the hassle of cash or checks.
Let’s say you and your friends get pizza one night and now you owe them ten dollars. You don’t have cash and your friend doesn’t want to have to cash a check. So, you hop onto your Dwolla account and transfer it just like that. Now they have the money, you don’t owe them anymore and it took two seconds to do.
The only fees that occur are a 25 cent charge to whoever is receiving the payment. A sender also has the option to pay the 25 cents if they choose.
This is a cheap and very easy way to transfer money to people and pay for purchases at certain places. Dwolla is becoming more and more popular each day and Financial Plus realizes this is where we need to be.
"We have a responsibility to our members to recommend and align with products and services which will provide easy, secure access to their funds," said Dave Cale, Financial Plus CEO. "Dwolla fits in our strategic goals nicely by supporting local businesses and offering low-cost, market-leading products to our members immediately."
