This defines the service message specification between Interswitch and Third Party Platforms who wish to process payments using the AutoPAY platform via SFTP.

Third Party platforms are expected to drop a file in Interswitch /IN SFTP folder, this would be picked and processed by AutoPAY. Transaction status would be gotten from the /OUT SFTP folder, while any errors encountered reading the input file would be in the /ERROR SFTP folder.


This integration is broken down into two phases.

1. Balance Enquiry and PIN change: Your system must be able to perform balance enquiry call and PIN change call.

2. Crediting Beneficiaries: This involves 3 steps
a. Constructing a valid file.
b. Connecting to the IN folder of our SFTP location to drop the file.
c. Connecting to the ERROR (To read files with errors) and OUT folder (To read files that have successfully been processed).
