Understanding xenPlatform and the terms that we use

Terms that we use

We refer to the parties that you need to manage payments for – sellers, retail branches, drivers, etc. – as Partners. Your platform is referred to as a Platform.

For each Partner you will need to create an account. The account is where all transactions are processed. The balance and transactions of accounts are recorded separately from your Platform. Its identifier – id* – is used when creating any transaction (e.g. Card charge, Disbursement), or when splitting payments and transferring funds between accounts.

*We are in the process of standardising our API nomenclature. You may in some cases find the account referenced as user_id or owner_id or business_id. These terms are synonymous.

Please contact us if you need help with your integration.
