What is the process flow for Domestic Money Transfer?

  • First you need to onbaord your merchants/ retailers using the Onboard user API
  • Then you need to check that whether the customer is already existing or not on EKO’s platform using the Get Customer Information API.
  • If the customer is already existing, then fetch his already registered recipients using the Get List of Recipients API. If the customer is not registered, then create a customer using the Create Customer API.
  • After the creation of the customer you need to verify the customer using the Verify Customer Identity API. You will not receive an OTP on the mobile number entered as customer's mobile number. If you want to resend the otp hit the Resend OTP API
  • If the customer is already registered and no recipient has been added then add the recipient using the Add Recipient API. You can check the list of recipients added from the Get list of recipients API
  • Once the recipient has been added or the already registered recipient has been selected then you can send the cash using Initiate Transaction API via either IMPS or NEFT channel
  • You can check the status of any transaction using the Check Transaction Status API. If any transaction goes into the refund pending then you can process the refund using the Refund API
  • On the staging environment, OTP will not be received on the mobile number. You need to implement the Resend Refund OTP API. Use the OTP coming in the response of this API.

How to generate the secret-key and secret-key-timestamp dynamically?

You need to pass dynamic secret-key and secret-key-timestamp in every request in headers along with developer_key. For the dynamic generation of secret-key and secret-key-timestamp, refer to Authentication . We have sample code available in PHP, Java and C#.

Where i can check all the API’s and their flow?

You can check all the API’s for DMT with their flow on Postman. You can download postman collection here. You can also refer this page for the documentation of all the APIs and the sample codes.

tx_status

If you get the tx_status other than 0, 1, 3 and 4 in the send money API then you need to make an inquiry for that transaction using the Get transaction status API.

Refer to Error Codes

What are the limits of the transaction for DMTl?

IMPS/NEFT limit is:

  • Rs 5,000 per sender per transaction
  • Rs 25,000 per sender per month

How can I get my live credentials?

Once you are done with the implementation, you have to share the request and response of the onboard user API, create customer API, Customer verification API and Resend OTP API and the login credentials with URL with us where the DMT APIs implementation has been done. Also, the requests shared should be from your server and not postman.

Technical team will do the sanity testing to check the flow and then gives you go ahead for the live credentials if everything goes right and will share the production credentials on the regsitered email id.

Sanity Testing is a required step in order to get the live credentials so as to avoid any issues on the prodiction environment and to and fro. Find the list of APIs which have to be implemented:

Onboard User
Get Customer Information
Create Customer
Resend OTP of customer Verification
Customer Verification
Get Bank Details API
Account Verification (If using)
Add recipient
Get recipient details
Get list of recipients
Send money API via IMPS
Transaction Inquiry API Using the Eko TID
Transaction Inquiry API using the Client_ref_id
Resend refund OTP API
Refund API
