List and search transfers for an account #

This section covers how to retrieve an Account's list of transfers. Transaction search is supported by passing in optional query string parameters such as: search which represents a term to search on, correlationId, startAmount, endAmount, startDate, endDate, and status.

Note: You can only retrieve up to 10,000 transfers using the limit and offset query string parameters. To retrieve historical transactions that exceed that limit, startDate and endDate query string parameters must be used to further limit the search. For example, if item 10,000 has a date of 2021-01-01 the next request can be the following,

GET https://api.dwolla.com/accounts/{id}/transfers?search={term}&endDate=2021-01-01
