Paysafe Rates With Virtuagym


  • Paysafe ACH only applies for the USA.
  • Clubs are required to have 2 separate accounts if they want to accept credit card and Direct Debit Payments. However, both accounts can be accessed from the same Netbanx username and password.
  • Transactions can take up to 4 business days to complete.
  • Invoices with invalid or missing details won't’ be executed and will have a red exclamation mark next to the invoice number. This can only be solved by rectifying the client account details (Clients & Staff > Client Account > Edit Details > Payment Details)
  • Imports and Exports now include these columns. This means that you can also send an import with the bank details of the clients and we will import them for you.
  • Members cannot remove their bank details. This process has to be done with the club manager or front desk of the club.
