Payout Links

Learn how to create payout links on the Finix Dashboard and via API

Payout Links are one-time use links to send a payout to a recipient. You can email or text the link to your recipient. If conducting a card payout, funds are usually available in minutes.

You can use payout links to send insurance payouts, sales commissions, and more. You can customize the payout link with your brand name and logo.

Recipient Experience

When a recipient clicks on the link, they'll see a where they can enter their card or bank information to receive their payout. This experience can be white-labeled to have your brand colors and logo.

Recipient Experience

  • Personal Recipients: For personal recipients, first_name , last_name , and personal_address are required in addition to the payment instrument.
  • Business Recipient: For business recipients, business_name , doing_business_as , and business_address are required. In addition, we require a control owner with first_name , last_name , and personal_address .

Once they enter their information, Finix will review and conduct standard underwriting checks. If the recipients are approved, a card or bank payout will be sent.

Recipients can re-visit the link to check the status of their payout. If the payout fails, they'll be asked to re-enter their information. If the recipient is under Manual Review, we may need additional documentation to clear the recipient. Please see our verification process guide for more details.
