    Hi All,
    I am using TMF666 Account Management and trying to capture the Customer's Billing Account details.  How do we capture Bank Account details of the customer to set Direct Debit? Or Even debit card / Credit card details.

    Hi Saravana
    The Payment Method API TMF670 (available on API table here) allows creation of payment methods, including bank accounts, tokenized debit/credit cards, etc. When creating, you allocate to the owner via the relatedParty attribute. This generally represents the Individual or Organization that "owns" the payment method.
    Additionally, you can relate the payment method to any number of accounts, including billing accounts, to represent that the account may use the payment method. This could be useful if a payment method becomes invalid, you can then discover which accounts are affected by that.
    On the account side, Account Management API TMF 666 allows you to set a defaultPaymentMethod for an account, which would be used for direct debit (of course not all payment methods support direct debit).
    Hope it helps
