Creating a Funding Channel

A Funding Channel is a configuration of a card Funding Type for an Immersve card issuing partner. See Funding Protocols for information on how to choose a Funding Type.

Your Funding Channel ID must be referenced when creating cardholder Funding Sources. A Funding Source is required for each combination of network and token that you wish to support for your card issuing.

The steps to create a Funding Channel depend on which funding protocol is selected.

Universal EVM

See Universal EVM Funding Protocol for more information on this protocol and how to deploy a Funds Storage contract.

Funding Channel creation requires the prior deployment of a Funding Storage Contract. By creating a Funding Channel the contract is registered with Immersve. This will ensure deposits to the contract are scoped to your application.
