International payments

Version 3.1.2 (Current Version)

What this API does

These APIs currently supports SWIFT and SEPA Payments

These APIs currently supports Indicative and Agreed rate types.

This API lets you initiate a single immediate international payment and submit payment requests. It also lets you check the payment status and confirm funds.

The API endpoint lets you ask Virgin Money to create a new international payment consent resource:

  • The POST action tells Virgin Money that a international payment consent has been staged. At this point, it does not identify the customer to Virgin Money; the request payload may not contain information about the account to be debited
  • The endpoint lets you send a copy of the consent between the customer and you to Virgin Money for the customer to authorise

Virgin Money will create a international payment consent resource and provide a unique ConsentId for the resource.

Before calling the API, you must have an access token issued by Virgin Money using a 'Client Credentials' grant.

Check the status of the payment consent.

Once the customer has authorized the international payment consent, you can submit the payment for processing:

  • This request instructs Virgin Money to begin the payment journey. Virgin Money will normally execute the payment request immediately, but this may not always be possible, for example, during busy periods
  • You must ensure the Initiation and Risk sections of the payment match the corresponding sections of the payment consent resource. Any discrepancy will generate an error response and we will not process the request
