Step 2: Enable On-Demand Debits via API

Once you have an account registered, contact borderless™ support in order to enable the On-Demand Debit API for your account.

Enable On-Demand Debits

Upon enabling On-Demand Debits via API, borderless™ will provide you with two pieces of information that you should not share with anyone: your Issuer ID and your Secret Key.

  • The Issuer ID and Secret Key are required for creating a JWT (JSON web token) that will be used when sending your request to the borderless™ API to ensure that you are the one requesting the payments be sent.
  • The steps for authentication can be found here: <https://borderlessapi-partner.readme.io/reference/authentication>
  • We will also provide you with a suite of bank accounts for your sandbox environment. These will be unique to your company.

Once you have those enabled, you will need to create a sandbox environment account where you can begin testing requests. In order to make an On-Demand Debit, a POST request must be sent to the On-Demand Debit endpoint. This POST request can be made either manually (using Postman or similar) or programmatically. Contact your account manager for staging and production location endpoints.

Step 3: Access Sandbox Environment

Once you have an account registered, contact borderless™ support in order to enable mass payouts for your account.
