Credit Card | 2-3 Business Days

User-added image

Credit Card Settlement Timing: Credit Card transactions will be deposited into your account in 2-3 business days. This is based off the transaction date which includes a 7pm PST cutoff each day. (Not including weekends or holidays). The processing fee will be debited from your operating account the day after the funds were deposited into your account. Fees always debit from operating, regardless if client funds are deposited into trust or operating accounts.

Disputes: Credit card payments can be disputed by the cardholder in the form of a chargeback. A consumer may initiate a chargeback by contacting their issuing bank and filing a substantiated complaint regarding one or more debit items on their statement. For most disputes the time frame is 120 days (U.S.) and 180 days (International) from the transaction date of the original sale or the date of discovery of the issue (i.e. defective merchandise). However, in some instances the time frame may be longer or shorter depending on the specific reason code. Once initiated, funds are pulled immediately and attorneys are notified.

MyCase fights each chargeback on behalf of our customers. In most cases, we will contact you to obtain additional information to supplement your chargeback dispute documentation.

eCheck | 4-5 Business Days

ACH Settlement Timing: ACH/eCheck transactions will be deposited into your account within 4-5 business days (Excluding weekends and holidays).

*NSF's: (Non Sufficient funds = NSF) ACH/eChecks work similar to a paper check. If the client’s account does not have sufficient funds to cover the payment made, you will be notified and funds will not be deposited into your account due to the funds not clearing your client’s account. Invoices will update to reflect the NSF’d transaction.

Refunds: You should always wait until after the 5 business days have concluded before refunding an ACH/eCheck transaction. For more details, visit this link.

Disputes: eCheck payments can be disputed by the account holder in the form of de-authorization. A consumer may initiate an eCheck return by contacting their bank and filing a de-authorization form. eCheck returns on transactions within 60 days are not defendable.

eCheck disputes on transactions older than 60 days would require proof of authorization. If you need any assistance understanding an eCheck return, please contact our support team.
