UPDATED 03:57 AM PST: We have completed the work on transaction related services. Transactions performed during the maintenance window will begin showing up in Activity throughout the day.

Investigating Erroneous Declines

We’re investigating an issue that is causing discrepancies with customer balances in our card authorization system. This is resulting in erroneous declines. Engineers are working on both a short term and a long term fix to resolve this issue. This issue is not affecting customers’ actual recorded balance.

If you have any questions or need help with a decline, please contact Customer Support by calling 888-248-0632.

UPDATED 09:40 AM PST: Engineers have identified a possible solution for fixing the issue and are performing the work necessary to resolve the balance inconsistencies. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

UPDATED 10:50 AM PST: Engineers have resolved the core issue and are working on a small number of remaining discrepancies.

Duplicate ACH Transfers

This morning, we observed that ACH (Automated Clearing House) transfers were incorrectly processed, duplicating the previous day’s transactions. At 6:05 am PST, our team began investigating, and at 7:20 am PST, we began reversing the duplicate transactions. This work has been completed. If your account was affected, you will see both the duplicate transaction and reversal in your Activity. Please reach out to our support team by sending a message or calling us at 888-248-0632 if you have any further questions. Thank you!
