Capabilities

Capabilities determine the actions an account can perform. We require different data and verification requirements depending on the capability and whether their account represents an individual or a business.

You must request a capability and Moov will perform the necessary verification checks (if any) and provide a status of enabledpending, or disabled.

If you request a capability by mistake, you can unrequest it.

tip
You can request multiple capabilities at the same time. Depending on your use case, it may make sense to request all capabilities an account will need once you’ve created the account.

Transfers

If you’re adding a Moov account, chances are you want that account to be able to participate in transfers, like sending or receiving a payment. If you request the transfers capability, Moov will automatically enable the capability once you provide the following information:

A website is preferred for a business, but if the business doesn’t have one, you can provide a description of the business that is 10 characters or more.

Wallet

A Moov wallet allows an account to store funds within the Moov platform. Accounts must have the wallet capability enabled to use a Moov wallet. It can also be requested on its own. This capability requires KYC or KYB verification.

The wallet capability is automatically requested when send-funds or collect-funds is requested.

In practice, the destination of a transfer must have the collect-funds capability if the source of the transfer is using the card-paymentor ach-debit-collect payment method. This capability requires KYC or KYB verification.
