Instant card funding lets you process transactions for a shopper moving money from a card to another card, digital wallet or bank account. Adyen supports instant card funding transactions for Visa and Mastercard. Possible use cases include:
- A shopper loading or topping up their prepaid cards.
- A shopper moving funds into another of their financial accounts such as a savings deposit account or retirement account.
- A shopper loading their third-party digital wallet.
Person to person money transfer
- A funding source for person to person money transfers.
If this is your use case, you must send an instant card payout after an instant card funding transaction to ensure the funds reach the receiver.
