An introduction to Instant Disbursements

Sending money to a debit card (from a bank account) should be easy, but the reality is that ACH and RTP come with delays and are difficult to orchestrate. The result? Your users can’t send funds to their external debit cards when they need to. Astra’s API helps you process instant disbursements — removing obstacles from your platform and generating new revenue streams.

Give users instant spending power, boost your revenue

Embed an instant disbursement option to your product via a simple platform integration. Then — if you like — apply fees to each transaction for an extra revenue stream.

Get started with a simple integration

Start initiating payments with a simple SDK and just a few API requests. It’s really that easy.
