Fincra Account to Account Transfer

You can transfer money directly from your available balance to other Fincra merchants. We call these Fincra transfers and this can be achieved by making use of the Fincra transfer API.

Fincra transfers can only be made from one account to another if their base currencies are the same i.e You can only make a payout from your NGN balance to another NGN balance and not from your NGN balance to a EUR balance.



Transfers from one Fincra account to another are free of charge

Webhooks are not sent for these transfers, you are admonished to make use of the response object you get when you make a transfer from your balance to another balance.
