Withdrawing Funds

How can I set up automated transfers to my bank account or prepaid card?

Auto Transfer allows you to set up automatic transfers of the funds from your Pay Portal to your bank account or prepaid card— so that you can set it and forget it!

In order to set up Automated Transfer, you will need to have a prepaid card or bank account linked to your Pay Portal.

To set up Auto Transfer in your Pay Portal:

1. Click on Transfer in your menu

2.Under Actions: select Create Auto Transfer

3. Select Confirm

  • If you have a prepaid card and/or at least one bank account saved in your Pay Portal, you will see them listed here. If you do not yet have any saved bank accounts, you can add one by clicking on Add New Transfer Method.

Auto Transfer Advanced Options:

Advanced Auto Transfer options allow you to split transfers between 2 or 3 different bank accounts or prepaid cards, as well as configure a minimum transfer amount.

  1. Select Transfer in your Menu
  2. Under Actions select Create Auto Transfer
  3. When in the Auto Transfer page, Select the Advanced tab 
  4. Select the account under Transfer Method and set the % field to the right. The total for all chosen Transfer destinations must equal 100%


For example, you can choose to have 60% of your incoming payments go to your card while the remaining 40% goes to a bank account.

Note: Under Additional Options you can choose the frequency of your Auto Transfer. You can choose either daily or monthly. If you choose monthly, you can select the date on which the first Auto Transfer is to take place.

Tip:

  • If you would like your incoming payments to be forwarded to your bank account and/or prepaid card as quickly as possible, select the daily Auto Transfer frequency.
  • Auto currency conversion. If you get paid in a different currency than the currency used by your Transfer destinations, select the currency in which you get paid here. This will ensure that the funds arriving in your Pay Portal are converted and transfer in your local currency. Please refer to your cardholder agreement for applicable fees
  • Minimum Auto Transfer amount. For example, you can set your account to only perform a transfer once you have accumulated a minimum of $100 in payments.

 

Please note: All Auto Transfer destinations selected must use the same currency. This means that you may not, for example, set one of your Auto Transfer destinations as a USD bank account and another as a CAD bank account.
How can I update automated transfers to my bank account?
  1. Click on Transfer in your menu
  2. Under Actions select Update Auto Transfer for the specific account

What should I know about using my prepaid card at gas stations, hotels and other merchants?

When you swipe your prepaid card at the pump of a gas station, oftentimes the gas station will place a hold (an "authorization") of up to $125.00 (or equivalent) on your card prior to you filling up. The actual amount purchased will be processed on the card at a later time, but the initial hold may last for 3-7 days before being released, minus the amount of gas that was purchased. During the time that the hold is in effect, the funds being held will be unavailable for you to use.

If you wish to use your Prepaid Card to purchase gas, we recommend going into the gas station to specify the amount of gas you wish to purchase in advance so that only that amount is held.

Some other merchants may have similar practices and even longer maximum pre-authorization timeframes. These include hotels and cruise lines (up to 30 days), car rental agencies (up to 60 days) and financial services (up to 10 days). In some cases, the merchant may be able to release the pre-authorization earlier than the maximum allowed holding time upon request.

Why is a transaction still outstanding?

If you notice a transaction under the status “outstanding purchase”, the merchant has not yet cleared the transaction. Transactions are usually cleared by the merchant shortly after the purchase was made.

However, some merchants such as gas stations, hotels, or cruise lines for example may pre-authorize a larger amount than the initial purchase and keep a hold on the funds for a longer time. These transactions will remain “outstanding purchases” until the merchant releases the funds and clears the transactions.

Can I dispute an outstanding purchase?

Please note that you will not be able to dispute a transaction if the status is still “outstanding purchase”. However, the merchant should be able to release the funds early. In order to have the funds released, please refer to section below.

How to release Pre-Authorised transaction?

If you would like to have the funds released earlier than the usual time frame, please follow the instructions below:

The merchant will need to fax a pre-authorisation release letter to hyperWALLET Systems Inc. at +1 604 482-0091.

The letter will need to be sent directly from the merchant and will also need to be on company letterhead. The following information must be included for the authorisation to be released:

  • Customer’s Name
  • Customer’s card # (first 6 and last four digits only)
  • Date of authorization
  • Authorization Amount in original currency
  • Authorization Code
  • Merchant ID

If the pending authorization is from a car rental, the merchant will also need to supply a copy of the closed contract (showing that the car has been returned).

If the pending authorization is from a hotel, the merchant will also need to supply a copy of the closed folio (showing check in/check out).
