Update a funding source #

This section covers how to update a bank funding source. The accountNumber, routingNumber and bankAccountType are all optional attributes that can be updated on a funding source when it has an unverified status. You can choose to update only name, name and routingNumber, name and accountNumber, name and type or all four attributes. Any attribute that isn't updated remains the same as it was prior to update, including the funding source id. The name attribute can be updated when a funding source has either an unverified or verified status.
