Update Virtual Account

Use this API to update the details of a virtual account.

The Update Virtual Account API lets you:

  • Create additional VPA handles for an account.
  • Update verified remitters and verified beneficiaries linked to an account.
  • Update the email address linked to a virtual account.

Create Additional VPA Handles

To create additional VPA handles, pass true against the create_vpa parameter in the request body.

When you do this, we autogenerate an additional VPA for the account.

Note

  • You can create a maximum of 3 additional VPA handles for an account.
  • You cannot deactivate individual VPA handles. To deactivate a VPA handle, deactivate the account. This deactivates all VPA handles linked to the account.
