When a client purchases a Gift Certificate online or in-office, their credit card is charged immediately and the funds are sent to your bank for processing. You'll also receive an email notification and text notification (if enabled) alerting you of the sale.
By default, funds will deposit into your bank account within two business days. As soon as the client pays, an invoice is generated in your business' Sales Activity and a 'clock' icon appears next to the amount. This indicates that the funds are in process. Once they've been deposited into your account, the clock will change to a green check-mark.
