Create an outgoing payment

After a quote is accepted and the authorized client obtains the requisite grant from the payer’s authorization server, the client can create an outgoing payment resource against the payer’s wallet address.

These code snippets create an outgoing payment to a given wallet address. The amount of the outgoing payment is based on the amounts in the associated quote.

Before you begin

We recommend creating a wallet account on Rafiki.Money, a test wallet provider that’s part of the Interledger testnet. Creating an account allows you to test your client against the Open Payments API using an ILP-enabled wallet funded with play money.
