How are your first transactions processed?
After signing up with Jobber Payments, you can start collecting credit card payments right away! Your first transaction will initiate an authorization period. In Canada and the US, this is a period of 5 business days to authorize your account and send payments to your bank account. Until that first transaction is authorized and deposited in your bank account, any other transactions you process within that period will also experience a 5 business day payout window.
If you are located in the UK, your first transaction takes 7 business days to be deposited into your bank account. During this time, your account goes through a verification period where any other transactions processed during this time are also subject to the 7-day deposit schedule. Once the first transaction is deposited into your bank account, the payout window shortens to 4 business days.
Note: No matter if you're located in the UK, US, or Canada the authorization period begins after your first transaction has gone through, not at your signup date. The transaction goes through on our end in 5 business days, but banks can take 1-2 additional business days to post funds past this point depending on the time the payment is processed and when banks are open, meaning payments can take up to 7 days. Payments are deposited in bundles when they are paid out, so there might be several transactions that make up a payout.
What happens once you've been authorized?
Once the authorization period has ended, payouts will be made on a 2 business day payout schedule.
