Bank Accounts

Rapyd enables you to issue a bank account number to a customer's Rapyd Wallet.

The customer can top up the wallet with a bank transfer to the bank account number.

Use Case Overview

Let's consider the case of John Doe (the customer), who created a wallet as described in Creating a Rapyd Wallet. He wants his wallet to have a bank account number so that he and others can transfer money directly into the wallet. John provides information requested by your website or mobile application, and he receives a bank account number for his wallet.

Let's walk through the process to understand how to implement this use case using the Rapyd platform. First, we'll look at your high-level workflow. Then we'll explain how to implement the workflow in detail. We'll use sample code to bring the workflow to life.

Issuing a Bank Account Number to a Wallet Workflow

Let’s look at the highlights of your workflow.

  1. A customer on your website or mobile app requests a bank account number for the customer's wallet, and provides the required information.
  2. The back end asks Rapyd to issue a bank account number to the wallet.
  3. Rapyd issues the bank account number and returns a confirmation to your back end.
  4. You display the bank account number to the customer.

Implementing the Workflow



To run the examples of this use case, you must create the following ID in your own sandbox:

Let's take a quick look at how you'll use Rapyd's API to implement the workflow.

  1. Send Rapyd a request to issue a bank account number to the wallet.
  2. Receive a confirmation with the bank account number.

Issuing a Bank Account Number to the Wallet

You ask Rapyd to issue a bank account number to John Doe's wallet.

For that, you'll use Issue Bank Account Number to Wallet with the following parameters:

The data section of this response shows:

  • The Rapyd ID of the wallet's bank account number is issuing_9bbf12953cbaa15b7c2a51584e3d4145. Since the request did not specify a reference ID, this number is also used for merchant_reference_id. When you run this example in your own sandbox, you will get a different ID.
  • ewallet is the ID of John Doe's wallet.
  • The bank_account in this case has an IBAN with the number DE3376599444263666923298.
  • The currency is EUR.
  • The status is ACT. This means that the bank account number is active.

Your website shows John a confirmation and the bank account number.
