Settlements is the process through which you receive the payments made by your customers for a particular product or service. Once Razorpay receives the amount, it is settled to your bank account after fees deduction.

By default, the complete process takes a time of T+2 business days for domestic transactions and T+7 days for international transactions, T being the date of capture of payment. This is called the settlement cycle. The settlement cycle is subject to bank approval and can vary based on your business vertical, risk factors and so on. Settlements are made to the bank account, the details of which you submitted to us as a part of KYC verification.

There is no need for manual intervention in Settlements.
