What does “deposit correction” mean?

All merchants start with a pre-agreed deposit amount. A deposit correction is when your deposit amount increases or decreases depending on your exposure to risk.

Risk exposure is primarily affected by changes in: 

  • Processed volume 
  • Chargebacks 
  • Refunds 

If your exposure to risk increases, your deposit will increase accordingly (and vice versa). In order to ensure the correct deposit is held, funds may be debited/credited from your settlement. This is booked as deposit correction.
