Learn about the different types of accounts you can create on xenPlatform

The first step to using xenPlatform is to create accounts that are linked to your business. The balance and transactions of these accounts are recorded separately from your Platform. This separation allows you to easily keep track of payments that you facilitate for the Partners that you work with.

There are 2 types of accounts that are available:

  1. Owned accounts - accounts that are invisible to your Partners and fully controlled by you
  2. Managed accounts - Partners get a full Xendit account that you can transact on behalf of

These 2 accounts types are designed for different use cases. If none of these types suit your use case, you can also customize the account configurations by creating the account via API. Here are the differences and suggested use cases below:

Custom Account Configurations

When creating your account via API, you can set different configurations below instead of choosing a type.

has_dashboardDetermines whether dashboard access will be enabled. An invitation will be sent to the sub-account's email address to sign up and login.
payment_settings_follow_platformDetermines whether the sub-account will use the Platform's activated payment methods. If "true", the Xendit invoice and webhooks will be sent to the Platform, and the name of the business shown to the public will be the Platform's.
has_withdrawalDetermines whether withdrawals will be enabled for the sub-account. This will require the account to complete activation upon login.
