You can automatically add a recurring withdrawal of funds when creating or boarding a new Merchant account by setting up a withdrawal flow. This tutorial will walk you through the steps to schedule a withdrawal flow associated with one of your groups, so that all new Merchants added to that group will automatically receive the same withdrawal schedule.
Schedule a withdrawal flow for a new Merchant account.
You must have a fully boarded Payrix account to perform any of the actions described in the use case guides.
Warnings will provide insight or advice to avoid risk, visibility, and product performance issues during this use case.
Warning: This process only applies to new Merchants as they are boarded to the Payrix platform. For Merchants that are already boarded, you can create an individual custom Withdrawal Schedule. See the Withdraw from Your Available Balance use case for more information.
Tips will provide suggestions to streamline or better prepare you to apply this use case tutorial.
Tip: You can apply existing scheduled withdrawal flows to Merchants after successfully boarding by assigning it to your whitelabeled Merchant Signup Form.
