Remove a funding source #

Remove a funding source by id. A removed funding source is soft deleted and can still be accessed when retrieved. When a funding source with an unverified status is removed, an attempt to re-add it within 48 hours of the initial created date will re-activate the removed funding source and maintain the same id.

Best Practices

If a funding-source has an outgoing transfer, we recommend not removing it until the transfer has been exported. Doing so will result in the cancellation of the transfer. Determining if a transfer has been exported or not can be done by retrieving the transfer resource and looking for the cancel link in the response -- if the transfer has exported, the cancel link is removed.

If a funding source has an incoming transfer, we recommend not removing it until the transfer has been processed. If the recipient Customer has multiple funding sources attached, doing so will result in the funds processing to a randomly chosen bank funding source. If the recipient is a Verified Customer type with only one bank funding source attached, removing it prior to an incoming transfer processing will result in the funds settling to the balance funding source rather than the intended bank funding source.
