Handle Errant Fields

 Occasionally, a submerchant may get onboarded without all the required information. When this happens, an errant_field issue will arise on the submerchant's Account Capabilities or Legal Entity Verifications. To handle these edge cases, be sure to listen for the accounts.capabilities.updated and legal_entities.verifications.updated API Notifications.

Use these API Notifications as a trigger to check the status of errant fields on your submerchants. You can check the status either:

  • In the Notification JSON body under payload
  • In the API response of a new GET request that you send. The GET request will be one of:
    • GET /legal_entities/id/verifications for Legal Entity errant fields
    • GET /accounts/id/capabilities for Account errant fields
