Entrepreneur Alex Taub is joining the Dwolla team. He will be operating as a Biz Dev Builder and he will be helping to establish the New York satellite office for Dwolla.
One of the features of Dwolla is that any transaction under $10 is free of costs, and any transaction over $10 has a flat fee of 25 cents for the merchant. This is a great advantage for merchants, ensuring that the financial industry has taken full notice of this company.
Here is an excerpt from the announcement:
I have some big news. I couldn’t be more excited to announce that I am joining the Dwolla team!
Dwolla is an amazing company in the payments space, looking to re-imagine what a company like Visa or Mastercard would look like if started today (and not 40 years ago with its associated legacy costs). I am going to be a Biz Dev Builder, leading business development and partnerships. I will be tasked with growing out the API platform- similar to what I did at Aviary with their photo API, except now with a payment API.
You are probably asking yourself, isn’t Dwolla based in Iowa? Well, yes it is. To that regard, I will be establishing Dwolla’s NY satellite (location TBD) with my good friend Michael Schonfeld, as he is joining Dwolla as their developer evangelist.

I have various interests and hobbies, but and most of them seem to be internet-related. Involved with computers and internet most of my career, and my very first computer was a 386, with a 20 Meg hard and 640 K RAM (huge in those days but dismal now). Those were the days when we built computers out of cast-iron :)
I now make my living full-time from the internet, working from home, writing for OnlinePaymentNews.com and other endeavors.
