Create a Payee
What is a Payee?
“Payee” is the money destination during transfer. It should be taken as a certain abstraction, which was created to have a consistent format for transferring money: it does not matter whether the destination is a wallet or bank account, clients always refer to some payee entity during the payment or schedule creation.
What type of payees can exist?
- Wallet – created by Customate system only
- bank_account – manually created
Customate will automatically create a set of initial, wallet-related payees for clients, after profile verification.
Any other payee types should be created manually (“wallet” type can not be created via Api call or in any other way except by the Customate itself).
