Payout account

Provide information about the bank account where you want to receive the payouts.

When you submit documents for a KYC check of your payout account, Adyen verifies that the bank account exists, and that it is owned by the legal entity. If you have several merchant accounts, you may want to add a separate payout account for each merchant account.

When you have your password for Essentials, you can add or change payout accounts.
