Typically, the merchant service provider will charge you their fees between the 1st and 5th of the month if you have a monthly billing plan (this is the default option).
If your payment processor sets up your merchant account on a daily discount billing plan, you will see deductions for fees from your daily batch deposit, and the rest may be billed at month end.
Sales batches settled prior to 5pm MST will be deposited on the morning of the next business day!
Keep in mind you won't be funded on holidays and weekends, as banks are involved in the process.
A batch is your total amount of transactions for a period of time, usually a day. When you 'close' a batch, you are submitting your day's worth of authorized transactions to the processor for funding into your business checking account.
Batches should be settled every day you have payment card and e-check sales. If you have no sales on a given day, then there is nothing to batch.
No. PayFrog is a payment processing reseller. This means we can offer products and services from several direct merchant service providers. We choose the best option for your business based on your needs, and you get personal service from a designated account rep usually not found at direct payment processors.
