Who can delete a transaction on the "Repair payments/transfers" page?

The Administrators and the Authorisers with the relevant access who receive payments/transfer for authorisation can delete a payment/transfer, if necessary.

  • Though the Operators can repair the transactions sent for repair, they cannot delete these transactions.
If a payment is sent through for authorisation with errors, can it be deleted?

No. Pending payments cannot be deleted. Only the payments/transfers which have been rejected or expired can be deleted.

An Administrator or Authoriser can choose to "Send for Repair" or "Reject" a payment if it has an incorrect amount or incorrect details.

  • Any payment that has been sent for repair will appear in the repair queue and can be corrected and re-submitted.
  • Any payment that has been rejected cannot be repaired or authorised again. This payment needs to be created again.
What does a status of "expired" mean for a payment/transfer?

Payments can expire in one of the two ways:

  • If the payment was created as an immediate payment and was not fully authorised within the payment authorisation period.
  • If the payment was created as a scheduled payment (future dated) and was not authorised by the cut-off time the previous bank business day by all required parties.

If the status shows that the payment has expired, the same payment cannot be authorised again. A new payment needs to be set up and authorised within the authorisation period.

Can I retrieve the records of deleted payments?

No. Once the payment is deleted the information cannot be retrieved again.
