[POST] client/v1/transfer

Post a payment with ACH_TRANSFER type

Allows Client Admin to create a payment with type ACH_TRANSFER to transfer funds from a customer account to client MSB account. This is to help facilitate a customer remittance payment flow. The intended implementation is to be 'behind the scenes' - a customer would operate a function on the client application to send money overseas and the client application would use the transfer endpoint to create the payment needed to transfer funds from the customer's account to the client's MSB account.

The payment type will be ACH_TRANSFER. Any ACH_TRANSFER payment type will automatically have the string Transfer to [[client name]] appended to the memo field. This payment type will also show up on statements and be available for notifications from the Payment Status Webhook.
