Deposit Accounts (Beta)

The Marqeta platform’s deposit account feature enables you to manage the creation, maintenance, and lifecycle of a deposit account.

You can also look up a user by their associated plain text deposit account number or list all the deposit accounts associated with a specified user.

Note
Using the deposit account feature requires additional configuration. If you are interested in using this feature, contact your Marqeta representative for more information.

Create deposit account

Action: POST
Endpoint: /depositaccounts

Creates a new deposit account for a user or business.

Before you can create a new deposit account, the associated user must successfully pass KYC. (You can also set the manual_override field of POST /kyc to true in the event that you performed the verification through another mechanism, such as with an alternative KYC provider or directly with the account holder). For more information, see About KYC Verification.

An active, issued card—at either the parent or the child level—is required before creating an account with the type field set to DEPOSIT_ACCOUNT. In contrast, you can create an account without an issued card when the type field is set to CHECKING; however, you must issue and activate a card before the checking account can be used to transact.

Note
Each cardholder is limited to five deposit accounts, including any accounts in the ACTIVE or SUSPENDED state. Contact your Marqeta representative if you need to raise this value.
