Users can open an account with a broker of their choice: 5Paisa, HDFC Sec, IIFL, Kotak & Zerodha.

To trigger the Account opening flow, trigger the relevant signup method of Gateway SDK.

Steps

1. Triggering SDK method

Learn more about signup method in respective SDK doc:

2. Save lead ID from SDK response

On close of Gateway's account opening flow (aka leadgen flow), the SDK will return the following data β€”

{
    "leadId": null,
    "status": "[INITIALIZED/DETAILS_REGISTER/BROKER_REGISTER]"
}
{
    "leadId": "612e1fc94d261b4aed130cb8",
    "status": "[SUBMITTED/COMPLETED]"
}
{
    "leadId": "612e1fc94d261b4aed130cb8",
    "status": "Account opened"
}

The leadId is shared if a user submits the broker of their choice (gateway flow complete). The same can be saved in your database for the related user.

3. Fetch details using Lead status API

To check for the lead's account opening status, use the following lead status gateway API -

curl --location --request GET 'https://gatewayapi.smallcase.com/v1/<YOUR_GATEWAYNAME>/engine/leadStatus?leadId=612e1fc94d261b4aed130cb8' \
--header 'x-gateway-secret: <YOUR_GATEWAY_API_SECRET>' \
--header 'x-gateway-authtoken: <GUEST_AUTH_TOKEN>'

Notes

  1. The signup flow requires initialising a Gateway session (either guest or connected auth token) before calling the signup method.

  2. For "Account opened" status, accCreatedDate is not always available.

  3. For "PROCESSING" status, the stage key is not always available. We highly recommend against using the same since it is not in a standardised format.

  4. leadAccepted key can be of undefined value, which means that it is unclear from the broker side whether the lead is accepted or not, it will get updated later as per the response we get from the broker later.

FAQs

1. Is there webhook support for leads? No, we do not support webhook for lead updates at the moment.
2. Should we use API secret in the x-gateway-secret header? Yes, the share API secret has to be used for using any of the Gateway APIs.
3. Is there a way to hide certain brokers from account opening flow? We are working on this feature and will keep all integration partners posted on the same.
