Adyen Payout API allows you to make payments such as insurance claims, rebates, affiliate and contractor payouts, expense reimbursements, or gaming winnings.
We support two types of online payouts: instant card payouts and payouts in stages. You can complete an instant card payout by sending a single API request. Payouts in stages require sending two separate API requests. Payouts in stages is intended for merchants that require a review of the payout before disbursing the funds. Within the company, multiple reviewers with different roles are involved in the payout. This is known as a four-eye policy check.
Using the Payout API requires additional approval and configuration on our end. To enable payouts, contact our Support Team.
Instant card payouts
Adyen supports paying out to cards instantly, and immediately returns the result of the payout attempt.
Payouts to debit and credit cards are currently supported only for Visa and Mastercard.
When you have enabled these payouts, you will have one API credential. This user can check card eligibility, submit instant payouts, and store payout details.
We support instant payouts for:
- Cards – Funds disbursements to the cardholder's bank account, or money transfers between two
individuals, virtual wallets or accounts.
