gc create

create a resource on merchants account


This will call the POST api for the requested resource and uses the --data (or -d) flag to construct the data payload for the request.

Otherwise you can use --editorName vim, then you can enter json and exit to submit.

See a list of possible resources from the GoCardless API Reference: https://developer.gocardless.com/api-reference#core-endpoints
