Marketplace

A virtual marketplace is a type of ecommerce website where products or services are provided by multiple third-party sellers.

You need to create a client technical account (External ID = MKP/) in your sandbox environment. This technical account will receive all incoming payments from your end-users before you can dispatch them - P2P - onto the payment account of the concerned merchants.

The most common steps for this type of activity are:

  1. Create a payment account for each merchant
  2. Get the end-user incoming payment on the technical account
  3. Transfer - P2P - the funds received on the technical account onto the client payment account of each concerned merchant
  4. Transfer collected funds from the client payment account of the merchant onto the bank account of the merchant

  1. Create a payment account for the money pot as well as for each donor
  2. Get the incoming payment on the payment account of the donor
  3. Transfer - P2P - the funds received on the donor payment account onto the money pot payment account

Crowdlending 

Crowdlending, also known as peer-to-peer lending (P2P), is the act of lending money to people or companies through online platforms that directly match lenders with borrowers.

  1. Create a payment account for the project/borrower as well as for each investor/lender
  2. Get the incoming payment on the payment account of the investor/lender
  3. Transfer - P2P - the funds received on the investor/lender payment account onto the project/borrower payment account
  4. Transfer collected funds from the project/borrower payment account onto the project/borrower bank account

The repayment (when applicable) works as follow:
