What does 'Insufficient Wallet' mean?
A wallet is deemed insufficient when a merchant's ledger/Rave wallet balance is not sufficiently funded to allow settlement to take place. This is often caused by chargebacks/refunds that have been deducted from a merchant's wallet just before a settlement is due. It mostly affects merchants whose settlement destination is a bank account. To resolve this, a reconciliation of the merchant's wallet will have to be done. It typically takes between 24 and 48 hours to resolve, depending on the transaction volume.
