The diagram below summarizes the interactions between Bond resources and APIs.
A partnership between your company and a bank is represented by
customer object and their associated
account objects are linked to the
program_id. To comply with financial regulations, you must perform a KYC check for customers before you can issue an account or card to them.
You can make instant fund transfers between accounts linked to the same
program_id. Customers can link their external bank accounts with an account in the Bond platform. ACH fund transfers between an account and an external account can take up to a few days to clear.
The '/transactions` API fetches balances and details of fund transfers for all accounts.
Bond APIs use identifiers to represent resources. Bond provides two of these identifiers when you sign up; others are generated when you execute API requests to create resources. Some identifiers are required parameters for multiple API endpoints.
The table below provides a quick reference for API fields that are used frequently across the Bond platform.
