External bank transfers (TED)


API Upgrade

Starting in v2.3.0 external bank transfers using BRLD are considered deprecated and will be disable soon. Check the BRLP migration guide with the support service desk.

External bank transfers use the TED (Transferência Eletrônica Disponível) system in Brasil, which allows fast and secure fiat movement between accounts from different banks.

When creating a new withdrawal request through TED, you may send all the banking information as part of the transfer request, or you can select a previously created Banking for convenience.

const me = await bitcapital.users().me();
const source = me.wallets[0].id;

// Taking an asset out of the Bitcapital platform is always called "withdraw"
const transaction = await  bitcapital.wallets().withdraw(source, {
  amount: 100,
  // This banking information will be used to create a new Banking Information associated with the source user.
  // Optionally, instead of `bank` you could use a previously
  // created destination banking information.
  // For more informations check out
  // bankingId: '4bdbcc4c-203a-4a79-9608-c83a27ae528d'
  bank: {
    holderType: AccountType.PERSONAL,
    bank: '123',
    agency: 456,
    agencyDigit: '0', // Use zero or '' if unavailable
    account: 789,
    accountDigit: 'X', // Use zero or '' if unavailable
    name: 'John Nobody',
    taxId: '123456789', // CPF
