As I said earlier, I think "primary" and "seconary" are well-enough
understood concepts now that we can describe roles in a particular
transaction with phrases like "acting as a primary" or "acting as a
secondary" and get the point across without much difficulty. But if
that's not acceptable, then maybe "transfer provider" and "transfer
recipient"?
