Create a demand deposit account

TxB allows clients to create physical accounts for deposits, payables and receivables. To learn about creating virtual accounts, check out our virtual accounts guide.

Step by step guide

Step 1 - Reserve a list of accounts

The first step in account creation is retrieving a pre-reserved set of account numbers.

GET /v2/accounts/reserved returns:

    "reservedAccountNumbers": [
            "accountNumber": "800013210000",
            "iban": null,			    // only applicable for non-US accounts
            "bankIdentifier": null,			// only applicable for non-US accounts
            "externalPaymentIds": null

Note: Your query can be filtered by:

  • entityId – For clients who work with multiple entities and want to disambiguate the response
  • branchCountry – For clients operating across multiple TxB branches

US clients will receive 12 digit account numbers Clients outside of the US will receive account numbers, IBANs and Bank Identifier information.

Step 2 - Create a physical account

Next, you should use an account from the reserved response to open a physical account. It’s important to specify the correct branchCountry as this will drive which local routing information will be available as well as the available rails.

POST /v2/accounts/PHYSICAL with this sample payload:

	"physicalAccountRequest": {
	    "requestId": "DDAOpening1",
	    "branchCountry": US
	    "isVirtualEnabled": false,
	    "administrative": {
	    	"accountName": "My First DDA ",
	        "accountNickname": "DDA 1",
		    "accountCurrency": "USD",
	        "accountPurposes": [
	    "accountIdentifiers": {
    		"accountNumber": "800013210000"
	    "ownershipAndControl": {
			"thirdPartyIndicator": false 	// true where depositor entity differs from creation entity

Note: The Id’s to be used within the OwnershipAndControl object can be retrieved by using the associated entityId in GET/v2/entities/{entityId} (Link). If the account is being created for the requesting entity, then thirdPartyIndicator = false and no further information is required – this will be inherited systematically.

Step 3 - Monitor the status of an account request

Account creation is async, so you need to monitor the creation process.

GET /v2/accounts/requests/DDAOpening1?requestType=CREATE returns:

  "accountNumber": "800013210000",
  "status": "COMPLETED"

Step 4 - Verify that account object is now created

After your async account creation is "COMPLETED", you can now retrieve the details of the account you created.

GET /v2/accounts/800013210000 returns:

  "type": "PHYSICAL",
  "accountStatus": "ACTIVE",
  "accountCurrency": "USD",
  "rate": null,
  "branchCountry": "US",
  "admistrative": {
	"openDate": "2022-03-15T15:49:24.845Z",
  	"accountName": "My First DDA",
	"accountNickname": "DDA 1",

Step 5 – Enable payment products on the account

Once the account is created, you can now enable products and rails for usage.

To enable products then you must submit the relevant information via API.

POST /v2/products/800013210000 with this representative payload:

	"requestId": "DDAProducts1",
    "achInformation": {
      	"companyId": "1234567891",
      	"secCodes": [
        "originationProfile": "Standard Originator",
        "desiredOriginationDate": "T+0",
        "incomingincomingDebitAuthorization": "Accept",
        "incomingCreditAuthorization": "Accept"

For some products, evidence must be provided in the form of documentation. Details of this will be communicated as part of your onboarding with TxB.

Step 6 (Where Required) – Upload supporting documentation

Once the product request has been submitted, you can now upload the required documentation. To do this you will need to utilize the document APIs.

POST /v2/documents?purpose=PRODUCT_ENABLEMENT:

	"customerIdentifier": {
		"entityId": "8C1BFE0D82374B6DBDDA2617CAD12269"
	"documentFile": "assets/documents/ClientXACHForm.jpg",
	"documentType": "ACH_FORM"

Once submitted you should receive a 200 okay response with the following information:

    "documentId": "5f3b9999-bb6d-4931-bc81-6ea855eede7b",
    "documentStatus": "ACTIVE",
    "entityId": "8C1BFE0D82374B6DBDDA2617CAD12269",
    "externalSourceId": null,
    "creationTime": "2022-11-23T10:08:37Z",
    "documentName": "Bank Test.png",
    "documentType": "ACH_FORM",
    "documentTypeOtherDescription": null,
    "uploader": "PARTNER",
    "linkUrl": {
        "linkType": "SELF",
        "linkUrl": "",
        "method": "GET"
    "relatedCases": null

Step 7 – Monitor Product Enablement

Once your product request has been successfully submitted, you can monitor the status.

All product requests will need to be reviewed and approved by TxB operations to ensure completeness and, where applicable, market setup.

GET /v2/products/requests/DDAProducts1 returns:

  "accountNumber": "80001319",
  "status": "COMPLETED"

Once your status is complete, you can begin to execute further API calls related to the available products.
