[AU] Custom remitter name

Updated over a week ago

Note: This article is relevant to merchants integrating with Zepto in Australia.

By default when you get or make a payment (or refund) the remitter will be Zepto in both the debtor and creditor bank statements.

You can customise this name in three instances:

  • For your creditors when sending money: making payments and issuing refunds.

  • For your debtors when collecting money: payment requests and refund requests.

  • On a per-transaction basis.

Update your default remitter name:

  1. Sign in

  2. Click on your name on the top left-hand corner

  3. Click Settings

  4. Click on Account

  5. Customise the Credit remitter name and/or the Debit remitter name fields

  6. Click Update

Figure: Changing your remitter name from the Zepto dashboard

Update your remitter name on a per-transaction basis:

You can elect to assign a remitter name on a per-request basis when submitting Payments & Payment Requests. Simply append the remitter key and a value within the metadata key.

  • For Payments, the party being credited will see the designated remitter name along the entry on their bank statement.

  • For Payment Requests, the party being debited will see the designated remitter name along the entry on their bank statement.
