How do I move money to my bank account?
Payouts are handled automatically by NeonPay. Payouts may not be scheduled or initiated manually.
How frequently can payouts be made to my bank account(s)?
They may occur daily, weekly, or monthly depending on which schedule is chosen in NeonPay. There is a surcharge of 0.50% of the payout for receiving daily payouts.
How do I change how often my payouts occur?
In NeonPay, navigate to the Merchant Accounts menu item. Select the name of the Merchant Account. Edit the Payout Schedule.
How long does a payout take to process?
Typically, a payout takes two days to move from the Requested status to the linked bank account. Holidays and weekends may delay funds moving to a bank account.
How do I view the transactions that made up a payout?
Click Payouts to view a list of your payouts, then navigate to the payout you’d like to view. The list of transactions included in the payout appears.
When I click a payout, why don’t the transactions appear below?
Individual charges batched as part of payouts will display once the payout is processed. If a payout is marked Requested, no list of transactions will appear.
Can I view the total fees I was charged for a payout?
Yes. Navigate to the payout you’d like to view. Once the payout is fully processed, a table appears at the top that includes the fees assessed on the payout.
How do I change the banking information payouts are sent to?
Navigate to the Merchant Accounts menu item. Select the name of the Merchant Account. Click the pencil icon next to Linked Bank Account.
What is a rollover from a previous payout?
Funds that were held during payout processing from a previous period. The funds are now available to be paid out to your bank account.
Why do rollovers occur?
Rollovers can occur for various reasons. A disputed charge could be recovered after a payout is requested and before it is processed, which will result in funds held until the next payout. A partial refund initiated after a payout is requested and before it is processed can result in the funds being removed from the next payout.
What is Amount Withheld?
A portion of the NeonPay balance not included in a payout. One reason this may occur: changes in a charge between batching and processing. For example: a charge is canceled after a batch closes, but before the payout is processed. This results in funds being withheld to cover the cancelled transaction that had already been added to the payout batch.
Another reason: our processing bank batches fees and transactions separately in a payout batch - this can sometimes cause a small discrepancy when the payout moves from the batched status to the processed status. These funds that got held up between batching and processing will be deposited in the next payout, and are shown as an Amount Withheld in the current payout, and as a Rollover from Previous Payout in the next payout.
What is the difference between Amount and Amount Paid?
Amount is the debit that the constituent can expect to see on their statement for a given transaction. Amount Paid is the amount the organization can expect to receive in their bank account for a given transaction.
Discrepancies could come from a variety of sources. There is some processing time between when a payout is requested & processed. If a refund is requested or the charge is canceled during this period, it may appear as a deduction in the amount paid to you from another transaction. Another example: if your NeonPay balance became negative in between the batch closing & the payout, funds will be held to offset the negative amount against the balance of your next payout.
If these funds were not cancelled, refunded, or disputed, you can expect to receive the difference in the next rollover.
Why is the number of fees greater than the number of charges?
A single charge may incur multiple fees: authorization, capture, American Express surcharge, etc. We lump the fees together in the Payout’s Transactions list to give you an expected total of fees per charge.
Can I disable payouts?
No. Payouts will continue as long as funds are added.
