Step 2: Generate a funding sources token #

Before calling a function within dwolla.js to add a new funding source, you need to generate a funding sources token. Your server initiates a POST request to Dwolla, specifying for which Dwolla account or Dwolla API Customer you want to add a bank account. Dwolla will respond with a funding sources token that expires in an hour. This token will be sent to the client and used to authenticate the HTTP request asking Dwolla to add a new funding source.

curl -X POST
\ -H "Content-Type: application/vnd.dwolla.v1.hal+json"
\ -H "Accept: application/vnd.dwolla.v1.hal+json"
\ -H "Authorization: Bearer qe634nV7dIYpYDf3VGZPciziPU2BCboUZ7G7EG8XEyGswKkBV5"
