This chapter includes information about features or aspects of the platform that are deemed Early Access.
Early Access features have added stability and will not encounter breaking changes, offering a backward compatible API Schema.
Certain Early Access features may not be accessible to all Stitch users by default. These features can be enabled on a per-client basis on request.
A settlement represents a payout made to a client and contains a batched set of user payments.
For test clients, mock settlements are created once a day and include all completed payments for the previous day.
Please note that for our settlements product:
- Settlements are currently only available to South African customers.
- A Stitch intermediary account is required.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on these.
The settlement field provides details about the batched payout made to the client. The following table outlines the possible statuses of a settlement:
|SettlementPending||The settlement has been created but not yet submitted|
|SettlementSubmitted||The settlement has been submitted to the bank, but confirmation of completion has not been received yet|
|SettlementCompleted||The settlement has been submitted to the bank, and confirmation of completion has been received|
|SettlementFailed||Failed to pay settlement into the destination account|
Settlement Failure Reasons
SettlementFailed status indicates that the settlement has failed and has an associated
settlementFailedReason. Examples of settlement failure reasons are listed below.
|bank_error||The settlement was submitted to the bank but was not completed|
|insufficient_funds||This settlement has failed due to having insufficient funds in the Stitch intermediary account. Please contact email@example.com to resolve|
|invalid_destination||The provided client account is invalid|
|internal_error||An unknown error has occurred processing the settlement into the provided client account|
