How to work with the payment system so that the account is not closed?

Unlike banks, where everything is clearly spelled out, sometimes difficulties arise with payment systems. How and what should be done so that the account is saved and your work continues, and the money is not frozen in the account? The process can be divided into two conditional stages: selection of a suitable payment system (see above) and daily work with it.

Daily work with the payment system

When the payment system is selected and the account is open, the workflow can be started. But some of your actions can lead to the closure of the account and it is better to play it safe. Here are some guidelines to help you get started:

  • You need to keep documents for each transaction. Even if the security system works, you will be able to provide the necessary documents and continue working further;
  • Notify in advance about all planned changes. Whether it’s a new partner, too large a transfer, changes in the structure of the company or a new director;
  • Respond promptly to requests. If you have chosen a good payment system, the support service will communicate with you and ask questions. Answer quickly and thoroughly. Better – no more than a day.

Tip: The more accounts and payment systems, the better. So you and your business will not be left without the necessary funds at the right time. If you depend on one account, then any change for you is a risk or even a business failure. Having 2 and 3 reserve accounts is a diversification of risks.
