What is a sender?

What is a sender? Suppose, i have to create a payout from my primary account to a beneficiary,then why do I need to fill a sender? I am the sender here right? Am i missing something?

The Sender object enables to save all the details of a sender in payout transactions. See also Sender object

In simple terms, the sender is the person paying the money in a payout. It’s a bit more complex than that, though. It is not just payouts from the client’s client wallet - it can be from anyone. The reason we need a sender object is that some payout methods require certain details. You can supply those for each payout, of course, but it’s more convenient if you can save them to a sender profile, and that’s what the Sender object is all about. For your own company, you can have one sender profile for payouts in USD, another for payouts specifically to cards in EUR and so on.
