Funding Sources #

The Funding Sources resource represents payment accounts that can be used to send and/or receive funds. Funding sources are relational to either the main Dwolla Account or an External Party and can be used to reference details on a payment account.

Bank Account Types #

Funding sources include an attribute, bankAccountType, which denotes the type of the bank account being attached. The bank account types currently supported by Dwolla include checking and savings.
