Set up sweeping in Console
Learn how to set up regular payments from your merchant account to your business account in Console without the API.
Before you start
Before you can set up sweeping to your business account, we need to verify your bank details for KYC purposes. This must be done for each merchant account you want to set up sweeping for.
To do this, click Get in touch in Console, or raise a request in our help centre.
After your bank details have been verified, you can set up sweeping within the merchant account dashboard.
Already set up sweeping?
If you have already set up sweeping with the API, the details of your configuration display within the Merchant Account Sweeping tab in Console.
You can edit these settings using the same process you would to set up sweeping for the first time.
Set up sweeping
After your bank details are verified, to set up sweeping:
- Sign in to Console and select the Payments icon in the left navigation bar.
The Payments Quick Start page displays.
- Select Merchant Account within the Payments V3 section.
Your GBP and EUR merchant accounts display along with their historical balances.
- Select the Merchant Account Sweeping tab under your merchant accounts.
