Explains how to accept deposits programmatically
After fully registering with us, you get a BSB and a dedicated Virtual Account Number (VAN).
Warning: The account number can only process local transfers, no SWIFT/RTGS.
Every deposit to this account would increase your Flash Payments balance.
The deposit data includes the payment reference (we call it
externalReferencein this API).
By default, only yourself is allowed to deposit. However, we can enable third party deposits feature for your account. This, effectively, makes your account number a local collection account.
We can also enable the sub-client feature. It allows you to programmatically create client accounts with dedicated BSB and account number for transactional purposes. You can give these bank account details to your clients to accept deposits. Once funds arrive, we will increase your account balance, and you will see a deposit with sub-client information linked to it.
Tip. You can simulate a deposit using the FlashConnect tool. Just go to the Deposits page and click "SEND TEST DEPOSIT". It's available only in our development environment. Additionally, you can fake a deposit sent by your sub-client. Just go to the Sub-clients page, find the sub-client, and click "SEND TEST DEPOSIT". It's available only in our development environment.
