# Beneficiary Verification Workflow

Businesses can verify beneficiary names to ensure that the refunds, reimbursements, claims, etc., are sent to the intended beneficiary account only. This feature helps you to verify the bank account and also ensures that the bank account is registered in the name of the intended beneficiary.


Beneficiary Verification Workflow

  1. Create [Cashgram](🔗) with the option **Enable bank account verification** enabled. Share the link with the intended beneficiary over WhatsApp/SMS/email.

  2. Beneficiary enters their bank account number and IFSC.

  3. Cashfree Payments does a penny transfer to the bank account. On getting a response from the bank, Cashfree Payments ensures that the account is valid and validates if the name entered by you matches with the beneficiary name as registered with the bank.

  • If the name matches accurately, the amount gets credited to the beneficiary account instantly.

  • If there is a mismatch, the transaction will have to be manually approved from the **Verify Beneficiary Name** section.
