Queued Payouts

When you do not have sufficient balance to process a payout, we queue the payout instead of failing the payout, saving you time and effort. Payouts that are queued are processed when you add funds to your account.

Note:

  • This feature is available to you by default. You do not need to do anything to enable the feature.
  • A payout is queued only when there is insufficient funds to process the payout. You cannot use this feature to schedule a payout.

Payout Processing Order#

Queued payouts are processed on a first in first out basis. If a payout cannot be processed due to insufficient balance, Razorpay attempts to process the next payout in the queue.
