Step 2: Attach an unverified Funding Source #

Next, we’ll add Jane Merchant’s bank or credit union account as an unverified funding source. Unverified funding sources can only receive funds, not send.

The example below shows sample bank information, but you will include actual bank name, routing, and account numbers after prompting your customer for this information within your application. Possible values for bankAccountType can be either “checking” or “savings”. More detail is available in API docs.
