Negative balance notifications

You’ll receive a negative balance notification when one or more of your merchant accounts contain payable batches with a negative balance that are older than 30 days.

You can have a negative balance when expenses of a merchant account exceed the amount of processed payments. When you have a negative balance you might not be able to process refunds and payouts or receive your deposit.

If you have set up a Reserve with auto-funding, the amount needed to balance out the negative Next Payout will be debited from your payout bank account.

If you haven't set up a Reserve with auto-funding, you have the following options to eliminate the negative Next Payout balance:

Tip: If your negative balance was cleared and you can now see a positive balance, you don’t need to take any further action.

Top-up in another currency

The top-up supports only the main reserve currency of your merchant account. If you like to wire a different currency amount to your Merchant Account please wire the funds directly to Adyen using this information. When wiring funds, state the merchant account you’re wiring funds for in the remittance description.
