Step 3: Creating an Unverified Customer #

Now that we’ve created a customer for Jane Merchant and associated a funding source, we’ll do the same for Joe Buyer, but this time we’ll create an Unverified Customer, and a verified funding source which is capable of sending money.

Provide the user’s full name, email address, and IP address to create the Customer. More detail is available in API docs.
