Cash Account Services intends to provide an intermediation layer between:

  • Any asset which needs to execute accounting related to its own transactions
  • Core bankings

Important notice: In all API descriptions, transaction must be understood as "accounting CRE". For example, a payment transaction can be related to n transactions (accounting CRE)

This API exposes two services:

  • Account validation, to get all information related to one or more account such as

    Account status ATLAS Particularities Account's owner information (Addresses, Ids, etc.)

  • Account authorisation, to manage client risk related to the transaction and, if necessary, create an earmark on account(s)

To be able to use this API, the requester must be onboarded (registered) by API owner. This procedure is necessary to define default Cash Account Services settings for the requester, practically, tune many default behaviors of the API (Earmark management, Virtual account management and so on).

Important: If this procedure is not completed, all calls will fail in CAS
