Step 2a: Create and connect a connected account for businesses

Step 2a: Create and connect a connected account for businesses

Once your Platform account is activated, you will be able to create accounts for your merchants, business partners, subsidiaries and clients via the Accounts API. The connected account that you create via the Accounts API will be linked to your platform account and you will have authorization to transact on behalf of the connected account using Airwallex's Scale APIs.

You can create a new connected account instantly by submitting three pieces of basic information: primary contact email address, confirmation of agreement to Airwallex's terms and conditions, and business name. The new account will subsequently be connected to your own account.

By confirming agreement to Airwallex's terms and conditions, you consent to the terms covering the tri-party relationship between Airwallex, your business and the counterparty on whose behalf you are opening the account, and in doing so, Airwallex is authorised to take action on the connected account according to your instructions.
