Create an account

You can create accounts for your users by passing the required information to Moov.

Note that mode field is only required when creating a facilitator account. All non-facilitator account creation requests will ignore the mode field provided and be set to the calling facilitator’s mode.

If you are creating an account with the business type “llc”, “partnership”, or “privateCorporation”, you will need to also provide business representatives after creating the account for verification purposes. Once you’ve added your business owners as representatives, you’ll then need to patch your Moov account to indicate that ownership information is complete. Read more on our business verification requirements here.

If you’re requesting the wallet, send-funds, collect-funds, or card-issuing capabilities, you’ll need to send Moov the user platform terms of service agreement acceptance. This can be done upon account creation, or by patching an account, using the termsOfService field.

To use this endpoint from the browser, you will need to specify the /accounts.write scope when generating a token.
