Is Lightspeed Payments available for everyone?
Currently, Lightspeed Payments is only available in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. To be approved for Lightspeed Payments certain terms and conditions apply. Certain regulated or illegal products or services, any unfair, predatory, or deceptive practices are restricted from using Lightspeed Payments.
I want to offer additional payment methods than what Lightspeed currently lists. How does that work?
Lightspeed Payments can be used in tandem with other payment methods. We recommend that you only use Lightspeed Payments for your credit and debit card transactions, and then add any additional payment method through your control panel.
How long does it take to get started with Lightspeed Payments?
Once you sign up to use Lightspeed Payments, activation only takes a few minutes. The complete approval process may take several business days, but you’ll be able to take payments during the review process by our team.
Please note that in some cases, Lightspeed may require additional documents for enablement. The faster you respond with the required information, the faster our team can approve your application.
I currently have a contract with another payment provider. How can I the switch to Lightspeed?
Depending on which provider your contract is with and what your terms are, potential cancellation fees will differ. On the Lightspeed Payments side, the switch-over couldn't be easier. Our friendly support agents are there for you at every step in the process to make sure you’re up and running without a hitch in no time.
Are there any hidden fees?
No. At Lightspeed, we don't believe in surprise statement fees. The only thing you should expect is a $15 chargeback fee, should one even occur at all. We offer competitive rates and our experts are happy to tailor our payment solution to fit your business's specific needs. No hidden fees. Just peace of mind.
What happens when I get a Chargeback?
Chargebacks are a reality no retailer can escape. Luckily, Lightspeed Payments makes chargebacks easy to deal with. If you lose a charge dispute, you will be charged a single $15 fee. We know that this process can be anxiety-iducing, so we're there to assist you from start to finish and keep you updated on the status of the dispute as it progresses.
What is the average payout time for funds?
You can expect to see money deposited into your account within 1 business day after a transaction is made. Payouts are done on every business day (Monday through Friday). A number of circumstances may affect this timeline, including delays caused by banking systems or risk monitoring. For further details on when to expect your funds, please refer to our documentation on payouts. Please note that for your first payout, deposits may take up to four business days.
How do refunds work?
One of the benefits of using Lightspeed Payments is that you will be able to make a refund directly from within the order page. Our integrated system will save you time and energy on potential refunds when they happen. When you arrange a refund, the processing fee will not be returned to your account.
