A Tilia Account represents an end-user in your system who wants to perform a transaction, such as buying or selling digital goods.

As an publisher, we assume you have an existing registration and user management system of your own. Thus our platform utilizes the concept of "shadow accounts".

With shadow accounts, your users do not login directly to Tilia. Instead, you authenticate users in your application, passing the Tilia account_ID to access resources, retrieve payment information, and conduct transactions on behalf of a specific user.

Registering a user creates a Tilia account_ID for the user. It also creates the user's wallets based on the currencies supported in your environment.
