Same & Next Day Funding Options for Merchant Services
Turn Some Day Into Same or Next Day And Get Funded Faster
For business owners, cash flow is key. You need continuous access to funds to pay your bills, meet payroll demands and keep your business moving forward. There are several merchant service funding options to transfer funding from your payment processing account into your bank account. Standard ACH, next day funding and same day funding.
Standard ACH Funding
ACH funding for merchant accounts takes 2-3 day for bank account funding for your credit card processing. There are no dollar amount limits and typically no associated fees. Standard ACH funding comes with all merchant accounts and serves most business types well.
Next Day Funding
The go to funding option for businesses that settle their batches at the end of the business day before 10:00 pm. As long as batches are settled before the cut-off time, funds will show up and be ready to use the very next business day. This means you can receive your payment processing funds in as little as 8 hrs.
Same Day Funding
The newest option for merchant services, also known as Fast Track Funding, provides the fastest in funding options. For merchants that need funding immediately, same day funding allows for batches settled before 6:00 am to be funded the same day. While this does not affect businesses that are closed and settled during normal business hours, it does offer the best in funding benefits for bars, restaurants, nightclubs, taxi cabs and convenience stores.
By working with a merchant service provider that provides the fastest processing funding options, you’ll have the immediate cash flow needed to keep business going.

How Does Next Day Funding Work?
With Leap Payments next day funding, you can be paid in as little as eight hours. Simply process your daily batch of transactions (by automation or manually as you prefer) before 10:00 pm Eastern. If you meet the cut-off time, your processing money will show up in your bank account the following morning. This special service is available regardless of which bank you choose for your deposits. And yes! Next day funding even works on Fridays and Saturdays, settle your batch by the cut-off time and your transactions will be deposited into your account and available for use by Monday morning. There is no limit of batch sizes, so no holds, no delays, no hassle.
Is There Any Way To Get Faster Funding?
For merchants that require the fastest deposits and credits to their account but do not settle until after 10:00 pm, we now offer same day funding. Same day funding can be faster for merchants settling their processing batches between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am, but offers about the same overall speed benefits as next day funding. But, unlike next day, settled batches done on Friday will be available on Friday with same day funding. Both same day and next day funding are added options to a merchant account and require meeting qualifications and have fees associated with them. For more information regarding requirements for getting next day or same day funding, please call (800) 993-6300 now and speak to a merchant account specialist.
How Is Same Day Funding Different Than Next Day?
Same day funding is the newest benefit offering for merchant services. If you operate a business that settles batches late at night or early in the morning, you will not benefit as much from next day funding, since the cut-off time is at 10:00 pm. To combat this issue and provide convenient services to all our merchants, we now offer same day funding with a cut-off time of 6:00am. As long as you settle your batched transactions by the cut-off, you will see your funds available in your bank account by 5:00pm, the same day. Batches are limited to $25,000 daily.
