Bundles a load, adjustment, and fee into one API call. Transfers occur between two accounts on a single program. This method can be used to transfer between accounts of separate customers, or between accounts related to the same customer. The sender's PAN or PRN should be passed as the 'accountNo' parameter. Contact the Galileo Processing Internal Operations team to make this method available.
Parameter Required Data type Pattern Notes
transactionId Yes String

60 characters or less


A unique system generated ID number that identifies the API transaction with Galileo Processing systems. A UUID is preferred. This must be different for each transaction.
accountNo Yes String



Can be either a PAN (the 16 digit card number) or PRN (a unique 12 digit account identifier).
amount Yes Amount

Monetary amount 0 or greater.


Currency amounts passed as whole or fractional amounts, examples: '100.00', '100', or '100.73'.
transferToAccountNo Yes String



Can be either a PAN (the 16 digit card number) or a PRN (a unique 12 digit account identifier).
message No String

Alphanumeric string including punctuation, with a maximum length of 2000 characters.

Thanks again for lunch!

An optional message for the transfer recipient (in situations of a customer to customer transfer).
type No String Three alphanumeric types defined in coordination with Galileo. Note that any codes will be defined through a request to Galileo. Transaction types must be set-up before they pass a value in the type column. You can define templates for different types of transfers using this field. If your cardholders will be doing a lot of account transfers, having type templates makes controlling payments, adjustments, and fees a lot easier.
If you're interested in using type, contact Galileo.
