Hosted Onboarding: Invite an Owner

addClient Mutation

We are no longer requiring the firmID in the addClient mutation.  This is now optional when using a firmApiToken token.


  • We fixed a bug with ACH payments where the status for failed payments was pending. Failed ACH payments will now result in status = error.

Breaking Changes

  • None

Sales Insight - Beneficial Owner Regulations

At Confido Legal, we are often asked why we require so much information from business owners. This is driven by regulations that we are obligated to follow as a payment processor. Each individual who directly or indirectly owns 25% or more of a business is considered a "beneficial owner" of that business. We must obtain certain information to identify and verify the identity of each beneficial owner. To do this, we gather the following:

  • Full Name
  • Role or Title
  • Social Security Number
  • Home address
  • Date of Birth
  • Photo ID
