Paying people to be your friends online just got a whole lot easier. Dwolla, a peer to peer payment platform, has just announced that its service is now available in all 50 U.S. states and supports Facebook and Twitter, reports theÂ AP. Dwolla is a web service with mobile apps as well. LikeÂ PayPal, it allows users to send and receive funds to one another via the net.
With its new Facebook and Twitter service, Dwolla users can message or direct message their friends a link with a Dwolla payment attached to it. The process is more secure than standard web-based transactions and only costs 25 cents per transfer, much less than traditional credit card fees. If both theÂ senderÂ andÂ receiver have an account, the sender pays the fee; if only the sender has a Dwolla account, the receiver pays the fee. Pretty simple.
