It is a simple process wherein, you receive the money paid by your customers for a specific product or service offered by you. Before the money reaches you, it passes through a simple process.

  1. Customer Makes Successful Payment: Customer does a successful transaction and money is deducted from his bank account.
  2. Cutomer’s Bank & PayU Reconcile: Both the entities reconcile or tally the successful transactions.
  3. PayU Checks Risk Factors While Customer’s Bank Transfers Money To PayU: PayU does risk checks to prevent fraudulent transactions. In the meanwhile, customer’s bank transfers money to PayU.
  4. PayU Settles The Money In Your Bank Account: Since PayU has now recieved the money from customer’s bank, the same is transferred directly to your bank account.

Note: Please verify your bank account with PayU to receive money or customer payments directly in your bank account.

When Will You Get The Money In Your Bank Account? 

With PayU, money gets transferred to your bank account automatically in 2 working days after a successful transaction (except Saturdays, Sundays and Bank holidays). It takes 2 days because there is a dependency on your customer’s bank to transfer the money to PayU.
