 Handles any situation


If the amount that needs to be released doesn’t exactly match what’s held in CheckVault, any amount from zero to the full payment can be released. The difference can be refunded or stored in CheckVault for later.


Sometimes things don’t go to plan. You can rest assured knowing that if for any reason money needs to be returned to your client, we’ll settle with them just as fast as we do with you.


You need to know as soon as things happen. Receive noifications instantly when payments are approved or declined, requests are read and messages are sent.


Given the nature of the vast majority of disuptes, CheckVault simply sidesteps the most common reasons. Even then, we have a fair process that is better then the status quo if worst comes to worst.
