What's different from v0?

What's new and what's changed from v0?


A number of major changes have been made to make it easier to implement our platform and also to provide better usability for our customers.

In v0.1, only secured charge cards are supported at this time. Unsecured credit cards and prepaid cards are not supported but are still available in v0. Support for these on v0.1 will be released in the coming months.

Due to changes in how the cards API works, cards issued in v0 can't be accessed with v0.1 APIs and vice versa.

Plaid for linking external accounts is not present on v0.1 and you must use v0 for linking external accounts.

What's new in v0.1?

  • Secured charge credit cards
  • Transfers/payments:
    • Secured deposit account to a credit account (repayments)

Prepaid cards

Prepaid cards require program_id in order to be created. This functionality currently exists only in v0.
