Use the Update Account endpoint to modify customer profile information in an existing customer record. Pass only the parameters to modify — other parameters should be left blank. Only active accounts (status: N) can be updated using this endpoint.
Nullifying data elements
Pass the string null for any of these parameters to update that value to null.
*Only if the provider parameter AENUL permits it.
Exercise caution when nullifying a primary address — for compliance in the United States you must maintain a physical address as an individual cardholder's primary address.
Updating customer ID
When you are using Galileo's integrated CIP process, you can update the primary customer ID (id and idType) as long as the customer has not passed CIPCIP - Customer identification program. In the United States, financial entities that want to engage in financial transactions with a potential customer must have a CIP to ensure that potential customers are not on terrorist watch lists. This provision of the Patriot Act is designed to increase security and guard against money-laundering. Galileo sometimes uses this term to encompass CIP and Know Your Customer (KYC).. If the customer has already passed CIP, status code 415-02 is returned. Secondary customer ID (id2 and idType2) can be updated regardless of customer CIP status.
Updating the ship-to address
When updating the ship-to address for a customer, the elements shipToAddress1, shipToCity, shipToState, and shipToPostalCode are required – shipToAddress2 is optional. You can retrieve the current customer ship-to address data using the Get Account Card endpoint.
By default, the embosser sends the card to the primary address. To ship to a different address than the primary, use the ship-to address fields. If you pass shipToAddressPermanent: 1 the embosser will always send cards to the ship-to address; otherwise, the ship-to address is used only for the current order.
