Suspend or Unsuspend a Recipient


In this use case, we’ll walk through suspending and unsuspending a Recipient Account.

A Recipient is a business or individual that you intend to conduct business with on the RocketKOR platform. A Recipient Account contains the recipient’s profile (name, contact information, and so on).

You can suspend a Recipient Account to make the account temporarily inactive, then unsuspend the account to make it active again. If a Recipient Account is suspended, the account’s Recipient Financial Accounts cannot be used in transactions.

API Operation


Send a request to the following endpoint:

PUT v1/recipients/{recipientId}

  • Include an Authorization header with your RocketKOR access token as a Bearer Token.
  • Use {recipientId} to specify the ID of the Recipient Account to be suspended or unsuspended.
  • In the request body, use the state parameter to suspend or unsuspend the account. To make an account inactive, set state to SUSPENDED. To reactivate a suspended account, set state to ACTIVE.

Sample Request

The following request would suspend a Recipient Account.

  "state": "SUSPENDED"

Sample Response

If the suspend or unsuspend operation is successful, the Recipient Account details are returned. For details, see the Recipient object.
