Beneficiaries are the foundation of Waza's APIs and this guide would inform you on how to use our API to manage the beneficiaries on your account.


A beneficiary is the recipient of an invoice that payments would be made to with Waza's APIs.

You would be able to add beneficiaries in countries supported by Waza and initiate payments to them.

Beneficiary Types

We have two types of beneficiaries, namely:
