Wallet transactions

Learn how wallet transactions provide insight into funds that move in and out of an account’s wallet.

For each transfer, a corresponding transaction is created representing how that initial source impacted a wallet. This granularity enables you to:

  • Reconcile a wallet’s balance on any given day
  • Create itemized reports leveraging transaction types (fees earned and paid, payouts, refunds, etc)
  • Monitor your wallet activity to stay informed on the latest transactions

Each transaction is paired with a detailed memo that provides more context about the transaction. For additional insight into how the transaction was created, you can provide the source ID to grab details. The source ID is used to link back to a transfer, dispute, or card issuing transaction.

A sourceID is one of wallet ID, card ID, or bank account ID.

Pending transactions

A pending transaction will only apply to credits, or incoming funds. Any funds in a pending state will not affect the wallet balance, or be available for use until that transaction is completed. If a pending transaction results in a failure, we’ll simply omit it from the transaction list.

Use the wallet GET endpoint to check a wallet’s available balance or access a failed transaction’s details.

Completed transactions

The available balance at the time of transaction is included on each completed wallet transaction. Once a transaction moves to completed, the completedOn timestamp will be populated along with the availableBalance.
