Lune supports two types of accounts: Accounts and Client Accounts.
- Accounts are designed for your own use. It is the simplest way of using the Lune Dashboard and API.
- Client Accounts are designed for B2B customers operating multi-tenant applications.
Accounts and Client Accounts support the same feature set, the fundamental difference is that a Client Account maps one-to-one to your customers and can only be operated via API.
When to use Client Accounts
If you are a B2B business and the ultimate consumer of Lune's services is your customer, we recommend you use Client Accounts.
When not to use Client Accounts
It is recommend that you don't use Client Accounts if:
- you use Lune not for you customers but for your own company's needs
- your customers are consumers
By using Client Accounts, you may provide your customer with the following benefits.
Client Account benefits
Orders and emission calculation are segregated per Client Account.
Because your customers' activity is segregated from others, you are able query orders and emission calculations per customer.
This enables you to keep mapping logic in your application to a minimum.
Each Client Account supports a named beneficiary.
When credits are retired, your customer's company name is displayed as the official beneficiary in the registry's public ledger.
