Creating Recipients

Plastiq Connect supports Check, ACH, EFT and Wire as Recipients receiving methods. You can use the POST Recipients endpoint to create Recipients on behalf of your customer.

In order to create Recipients receiving Payment via Check, ACH, EFT and Wire specify the corresponding type in the type attribute. You will need to provide an email or phone for the Recipient in the contact object. The type of Recipient you create will determine the other corresponding fields required in the receivingMethod.

Creating a Recipient with a payer ID will result in a "Payer Scoped" Recipient. This limits the Recipient to receiving payments from the Payer you specify. Recipients created without a payer ID will be payable by any Payer.
