Data collecting form
To transfer money to a bank card, you must collect user’s personal details and the bank card data. You can do it independently or using the YooMoney form.
If you use the form, YooMoney will store the required data on its side. You will receive the card synonym and the user ID in YooMoney, i.e. the depersonalized data that won’t result in financial loss or image discrediting if published. Using the received data, you will be able to make payouts to the card without verifying the passport information.
YooMoney will verify personal data only while getting a user ID. The guaranteed validity period of the user ID is 330 days. For further payouts to the user’s card, personal data must be collected again.
Interaction scenario
Step 1. The user initiates a payout to their bank card in your system.
Step 2. You redirect the user to the form for collecting bank card data.
Step 3. The user enters the card details and clicks Дальше (Next).
Form for bank card details
Step 4. The user is redirected to the form for entering passport details, where they fill out all the fields and click На проверку (Verify).
Form for user’s personal information (full set of fields)
Step 5. YooMoney displays the Taxpayer Identification Nmuber (INN) corresponding with the information entered in the previous step and asks them confirm that the INN is correct.
Form for confirming the INN
After the user clicks Подтверждаю (Confirm), YooMoney sends the parameters for making the payout (bank card synonym and the user ID) to you and redirects the user to the success page.
If there's something wrong with the data or if it doesn't return an INN, YooMoney will ask the user to double check the entered information and correct it if necessary.
Form for checking the entered information
If the user changes their information, YooMoney will start another verification process. If the user doesn't change anything and confirms that the information is correct, YooMoney will offer them the option to enter another document: INN (TIN), SNILS, and the OMS insurance policy number to verify the payout recipient via an alternative method.
Form for entering the second document
If this results in successful verification, YooMoney will send the parameters for making the payout (bank card synonym and the user ID) to you and redirect the user to the success page. If there's still something wrong with the information, YooMoney will redirect the user to the error page.
Step 6. YooMoney sends the received data to the GUVM MVD service to complete the verification of the payout recipient.
You can start making payouts as soon as you receive the data from YooMoney. You will find out the final result of the verification after first using the user ID:
  • If the payout for this user ID is successful (status=0), then everything is fine: the recipient is identified and you can use the data to make payouts.
  • If you receive an error stating the passport details weren't verified (status=3 and error=48), the recipient will need to repeat the identification process.
  • If you receive a response stating the request is being processed (status=1), it means the information is still being verified. Wait for the final request status (success or failure).
