What is an account_id?

The account_id is the unique ID for WePay merchant accounts. An account is required in order to accept payments, and funds will then be collected in the account until the account owner withdraws. Multiple account_ids can be attached to a single User. To create a merchant account for a user on your application, make the /account/create call.

For more information on creating accounts, please review our Developer Doc article

To see the WePay merchant accounts your app has opened for users, go to the "Data" section of your WePay dashboard. Using the top left dropdown menu, select "accounts"—you can view accounts you have created in the past 30 days from here. We strongly recommend storing API call and response data in your own database, as well.

You can also find all accounts opened for a user by making the /account/find call with the access_token associated with the user you want to find accounts for. This call will return an array of accounts, including any account_ids.
