Initiate micro-deposits #

Once you POST to the initiate-micro-deposits link, Dwolla will send two small amounts to your customer's bank or credit union account. If the request is successful, Dwolla returns a HTTP 201 and a link to the created micro-deposits resource funding-sources/{id}/micro-deposits in the location header. The micro-deposits resource can be later used to retrieve the status of micro-deposits or verify micro-deposit amounts. If your application is subscribed to webhooks, a webhook will be sent with the microdeposits_added event, notifying your application that micro-deposits are en route to your customerā€™s bank account.
