How does SOUS Payments work?

Answer: For an in-depth review of our process and integration with Nuvei, please see our article How SOUS Payments Works

What are your fees?

Answer: There are no setup or monthly fees to use SOUS Payments. You only pay 3.1% + 0.10¢ per successful card charge from major credit cards.
See our Pricing Breakdown for complete information.

How long do payouts take?

Answer: Payout (aka "funding") is typically received within 24 hours for Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and AMEX transactions (barred any processing delays or issues). Funding for ACH transactions typically takes 3-5 business days to process. 

Credit card transactions follow a three-step funding cycle:
  1. Initiation Day
  2. Effective Day
  3. Settlement Day

Visa, MasterCard, and Discover transactions follow the three-step funding cycle, and deposit on the third business day. For example, a Visa transaction entered on a Monday before the batch closes would settle and deposit to your bank account on Wednesday. All transactions entered on the same day will be deposited together in one lump sum on the settlement date.

American Express transactions require one extra step in processing, and therefore have an extra 1-2 days of funding time.  You can expect deposits directly from American Express 1-2 business days after the settlement date.

How do refunds work?
