[NZ] Managing Multiple Bank Accounts

You can now add multiple Bank Accounts to your Zepto account. Read on to find out how to manage the accounts.

Updated over a week ago

When you register for a Zepto account, you are required to add a bank account and verify that this account belongs to you. By default, this account will be a Primary Zepto bank account.

You have the ability to add multiple bank accounts and choose which of these we should use for your transactions, Claim collections/late dishonours and Billing purposes.

This article will cover the following:

Adding A Bank Account

Adding a bank account is a simple process and should take you no longer than five minutes. Once you have added the bank account, you will need to upload a bank statement stating the account details as well as your legal entity name that was used to sign up on the Zepto dashboard.

The following steps will explain how to add a new bank account to your Zepto Account.

  1. Sign in to your Zepto account

  2. Click on your name from the top left of the screen

  3. Click on the Settings option

  4. Click on Bank Accounts

  5. Click on the green Add bank account button

  6. Enter the relevant BSB and Account Number

  7. Click Add bank account

This bank account will now be added to the dashboard but will be in a unverified state. You will not be able to use the bank account until it has been verified by the Zepto team. You can send through your bank statement for verification using the chat bubble at the bottom of the screen.

Choosing A Primary Bank Account

By default, the first account you register with in Zepto will be set as your primary bank account. This is the account that will facilitate all of your transactions unless you specifically tell us to use a different account.

You can tell which of your bank accounts is the primary account by viewing your bank accounts page in your account settings. There will be a Primary label next to the account that is currently Primary. Should you wish to make another bank account the primary account, follow these simple steps.

  1. Click on the blue title field of the bank account you wish to be primary

  2. Click on the Actions button in the top right of this page

  3. Click Make Primary

  4. An alert will pop up and you will need to click OK

  5. You should now see Primary in the roles section of this bank account

Choosing your billing bank account

By default, we will use the first bank account that you added when creating your Zepto account for billing purposes. If you would prefer that we use a different bank account to Debit our fees from, you can do so easily through your bank account settings by adding a bank account and following these steps

  1. Log into your Zepto account

This is now the bank account that we will be using for your invoices.

Choosing Which Account To Use For Recovery

In cases, of Claim collection/late dishonours, our transactions team will be reaching out via email to you with all the relevant details. The recovery bank account is used to facilitate such transactions.

API Integration

If you have built an API integration, choosing which bank account we should use is as simple as adding one field to your payloads when creating a transaction. This field is:

your_bank_account_id: {bank_account_id}

Please find the example payment and payment request payloads below. You can also refer to our API documentation here.

If this field is supplied with your request, this is the bank account that we will use to facilitate this transaction. If it's not supplied, we'll use the bank account that is marked as Primary.
