Updates to Bank Account Verification

Please ensure to account for this time whenever you use a new bank account as a funding source for a payment order.

The 3 days will be applicable only for the first debit for a newly added bank account. All subsequent orders will be processed based on the processing date selected by you when submitting the order.

QBO Funding and Fee Entries

When syncing paid bills from RBC PayEdge to QuickBooks Online (QBO) account, for better reconciliation, funding and fee amount will be recorded as separate entries in Bank Account and Clearing Account in QBO.

Also, the type for RBC PayEdge fees will be updated to Expense and all CAD and USD transaction fees will be posted to WayPay Inc (CAD) account and WayPay Inc (USD) account respectively.

Security Updates

Due to security risks associated with personal information being stored in the browser cache, RBC PayEdge has disabled browser autocomplete for sensitive fields and input forms while using the PayEdge portal.
