Transactions are created for funds that come into or flow out of your Speed account balance. This makes it easy to manage payments and reconcile your business transactions regularly. Overall, it provides insight into the payouts and payments of your business.

Types of transactions

The attribute type in the response body of the transaction object indicates the type of the balance. Let’s learn more about the different types of transactions.

Currently, there are three types of transactions, as mentioned below:

PaymentCreditPayment is when you receive funds from your merchant.
PayoutDebitPayout is when funds move from your Speed account to your chosen crypto wallet.
FeesDebitFees are when the transaction fees are debited from your account because of the on-chain fund transfer.

Retrieve transactions via web application

Log in to your account and follow the steps below to retrieve a list of all the transactions.

  1. On the left sidebar, click Transactions.
  2. This will take you to the transaction page, where you can see all the transactions moving through your Speed account.

Retrieve transactions via API

The /balance_transaction endpoint can be used to retrieve information about the transactions like target_currency (currently only SATS), source, type, and so on. You can use the pagination parameters: starting_after, limit, and ending_before to get the desired list of transactions if the has_more attribute is true.
