In order to accept payments with Dwolla using Give you will need to have an active Dwolla account, the Dwolla add-on, and the Core Give plugin installed and activated. See here for instructions on installing and activating Give Add-ons.
After your Dwolla Add-on is activated, go to “Donations > Settings” and click on the Payment Gateways tab. There you will see the default Payment Gateways (PayPal Standard, Test Payment, and Offline Donations). You should also see Dwolla as an option as well. Click on that to enable Dwolla as your Payment Gateway for your website.

Once you have activated the Add-on, it’s time to integrate your Dwolla account with Give. You’ll need to register an Application in your Dwolla account and use the API Keys generated there to configure Give with Dwolla.

To test Dwolla, ensure Give has in test mode enabled under Settings > General > Test Mode and make sure the sandbox is setup properly. First, create an account for both Dwolla live and test domains:
