What is next

In your Tipalti account, you can check the payments you send earlier from your Affise platform. To do that, go to Payments > Payment history:

When payment reached Tipalti, a user with "payment approval" rights needs to approve or decline it. If you want the system to approve it automatically, submit a related request to Tipalti Support Team via [email protected].

Payment statuses can be updated to the following on your Affise platform:

  • Sent to Tipalti: the system sent the affiliate’s payment to Tipalti and awaits the Tipalti response. This status appears once the affiliate uses the Submit to Tipalti button.

  • Waiting payment Tipalti: the system sent the affiliate’s payment to the bank and awaits the bank’s response. This status appears once the payment has Pending Funds or Submitted statuses in Tipalti.

  • Completed: the bank successfully processed the affiliate’s payment. This status appears once the payment has Paid status in Tipalti.

  • Declined: the affiliate’s payment was declined because of some reason, which you can see in the Note field on the Affise side. This status appears once the payment has Canceled, Cleared, or Deferred statuses in Tipalti.

Reasons for payment’s rejection can be different and caused by various reasons: incorrect payment details, lack of payment method, lack of the needed sum on Tipalti’s balance, etc.

⚠️ On the Affise side, the system correlates the payment statuses with Tipalti’s ones every hour and updates if needed.

On Tipalti, payment statuses can be different because of specific reasons. Read more about it here.
