Merchant Account Onboarding FAQ
I don’t have access to some of the required information on the Merchant Account application. What should I do?
You will need to fill out all required fields on the Merchant Account application for your account to be configured. If you are unsure about what information to enter in a certain field, please contact NeonCRM’s support team to request further assistance.
Our Doing Business As name is not our legal Organization Name. Where should I enter our DBA name?
Enter your legal organization name as registered with the IRS in the Organization Name field, and your Doing Business As name in the Statement Descriptor field. This name will appear on your constituents’ bank and credit card statements.
My organization’s mailing address is a PO Box and we do not have a physical address. What should I enter as my Organization Address?
If your organization only uses a PO Box, you can enter the home address of the Primary Contact, or home address of another organization executive. This address will not be published or printed, nor will mail be sent to the address.
Why does NeonPay require a Social Security Number?
NeonPay’s processing bank requires the Primary Owner’s Social Security Number, date of birth, and first and last name, in order to comply with government FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network) regulations, and satisfy the KYC (Know Your Customer) requirements of all financial institutions.
Can I change my linked bank account at a later time?
Yes. Navigate to the Merchant Accounts menu item to edit your bank account information.
Can I change my statement descriptor at a later time?
The statement descriptor is set up when you fill out the Merchant Account application. Currently, you may not change the statement descriptor after your merchant account has been created, as it will interrupt the flow of transactions and cause charges to fail.
My account status is Not Ready. What does this mean?
Your application is being held for manual review by our processor’s underwriting team, which can take between 1 to 4 business days.
My account was rejected. What do I do?
The processor occasionally rejects accounts while they go into manual review, approving them once verified. If your account still shows as rejected an hour or two after you created the account, feel free to reach out to your support team, who will coordinate with the processor for the steps needed to get your account approved. Occasionally they require additional documentation to approve the account or information to be updated in the NeonPay portal.
How will I know when I can process with NeonPay?
Reach out to your support team for an implementation timeline of NeonPay into your Neon One account.
Can I cancel at any time?
Yes. Deactivate NeonPay in your application to stop sending over new charges. Contact your Application’s Technical Support as well to let us know. Existing charges can be disputed several months afterward, so the Merchant Account will remain accessible for limited activities. The NeonPay team will deactivate your NeonPay account so that no new charges can be submitted. We will then set your minimum balance to $0, and payout any remaining balance.
