The payment methods available for a given Moov account depend on the linked funding source as well as the capabilities on that account. For example, if your account isn’t linked to a verified bank account, you won’t have the ability to send funds with the
ach-debit-fund payment method.
Once you’ve added a bank account or card and it’s been verified, your account will automatically be updated with the new payment methods available to you. You can see what payment methods are available using the following:
- Payment methods via Moov.js, a browser client that collects PII so you don’t have to be responsible for handling and storing sensitive customer information
- The payment methods
After linking a bank account, the corresponding Moov account will automatically have the following payment methods:
ach-credit-standard: Can only be the destination of a transfer, taking between 3-4 business days
ach-credit-same-day: Can only be the destination of a transfer, receiving funds within 1 business day
rtp-credit: Can only be the destination of a transfer, receiving funds in near real-time
In other words, any Moov account with a connected bank account can receive funds. However, until that bank account has been verified via micro-deposits or instant account verification, it cannot be debited.
Once the sender party Moov account has the
send-funds capability enabled and a verified bank account, the following payment method will be available:
ach-debit-fund: Can only be the source of a transfer
ach-debit-fund payment method indicates ACH funding of a payout, or adding funds to a Moov wallet.
You can also use a verified bank account to fund a collection transfer (for example, a bill payment). Moov accounts with verified bank accounts and the
transfers capability will receive the following payment method:
ach-debit-collect: Can only be the source of a transfer
ach-debit-collect payment method indicates destination entity pulling funds (for example, a bill payment where the utility company is pulling funds from someone else’s account).
Cards can be linked to a Moov account to be charged one time or multiple times. Once a card is linked to a Moov account, the following payment method will be available:
card-payment: Can only be the source of a transfer
Any account with the
wallet capability will receive a Moov wallet, which can be used to store money, or as a funding source for transfers. If an account has a Moov wallet, it will also have the
moov-wallet payment method.
