How long does funding take?
Our funding takes 1-2 business days, depending on your account. You will see your deposits appear in your bank account within 2 business days (depending on the time of day that your transactions are settled). Any transactions processed over the weekend or bank holidays are deposited on the following business day. If you have any questions in regards to our funding process, contact us to learn more.
Does Redde have instant account approvals, such as Stripe and Square?
Instant account approval is a popular feature of Stripe and Square, but it's not an official approval. Stripe and Square allow merchants to start processing payments through a “pre-approved” account. This gives Stripe and Square the ability to onboard merchants more quickly and enable transactions. After transactions are enabled, the merchant is then put through underwriting. Underwriting will then review accounts and decide if they should remain open or not. They may request documentation or deny all transactions. It really depends on what they find associated with the account. Allowing merchants to process payments through an account that may or may not be officially approved is why merchants often have closed accounts with funds held. Then, once Stripe or Square decides they don’t like the account, it’s far too late. This is why there are endless stories online of merchants having their accounts closed almost immediately after signup.
So, what you are looking for is a payment provider that allows for immediate signup, like Stripe and Square. If that’s what you need, then feel free to enroll with Redde. You can signup 100% online, just like Stripe and Square. While Stripe and Square hide the fact that your account goes through underwriting, we don’t. By signing up for an account with Redde, you will get an approved account with no holds and reviews - post approval.

What is PCI Compliance?
PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. This is a set of requirements designed to ensure that any business or company that processes, stores or transmits credit card information preserve a secure environment that protects cardholder data.
