Create a Bank Account Verification
A bank account verification request allows merchants to send initiate the bank account verification request by sending some information about the customer to Paysafe, along with a few other parameters. The response to the POST request will contain a redirect URL by which the customer will be able to select a bank and verify that they, in fact, own the bank account(s).
To process a bank account verification, you must initiate a POST request to the verifications endpoint.
