What is a KYC-check?

KYC stands for Know Your Customer. This is how we call the process where we collect and review relevant information about the customer and then check for possible risks related to money laundering, financing terrorism, or sale of high-risk products. We must do this in order to comply with existing legislation and regulations (Wwft).

What if my KYC is not approved?

Every new onboarding undergoes an automated quick scan in which Buckaroo scans the Chamber of Commerce registration. It is possible that a company passes the quick scan and can immediately process live transactions. If later, during the manual customer due diligence it appears that the company does not meet the KYC requirements, the cooperation must be terminated immediately. Payments are immediately refunded to the consumer and do not end up with the company. Please be aware of this risk if your account has not yet completed the KYC process.

My refunds are stuck on the status Pending, what do I need to do?

When refunds receive the status "on-hold" because the account balance is too low for example, the refused refunds need to be approved manually. You can do this via: Transactions --> Rejected refunds and payment orders --> Select all refunds -- Actions --> Resettle selection.

Remark: When a refund is succesfully processed, the refund can not be cancelled or reversed afterwards.

How can I ensure that there is always an available balance to perform refunds?

To ensure that there is always a balance available to perform refunds, we advise you to set a “payout threshold”. This amount always remains after a payment. The threshold amount is always in whole euros and preferably in multiples of one thousand euros. The questions and requests regarding setting or raising a threshold may be sent to Please include URGENT – Set Minimum balance after payout in the subject line of the e-mail.

Please note that Buckaroo may require one or a few business day(s) of processing time to set the threshold.

There is not enough balance, how do I raise my balance to perform extra refunds?

Buckaroo heeft oplossingen om uw saldo te kunnen aanvullen: via iDEAL, Bancontact, KBC/CBC en Overboeken.

iDEAL, Bancontact, KBC/CBC: To raise the balance as soon as possible, an iDEAL, Bancontact or KBC/CBC transaction can be chosen. In the Buckaroo Plaza you have to navigate to Financial -> Accounts and statements -> Actions -> Raise balance. The balance is then topped up within approximately 30 minutes and can then also be used immediately to perform refunds.

Bank transfer: It is also possible to raise the balance via a bank transfer. The processing time for this option is 2 to 3 business days. In the Buckaroo Plaza you must navigate to -> Financial -> Accounts and statements -> Actions -> Raise balance and select the Bank transfer option. You must then manually transfer the money to the bank account specified in the payment screen. Don't forget to specify the payment reference.


How do I process a refund?

You can process a refund via the Buckaroo Plaza, by uploading a batch file or via the back-end/API of your website. More information about refunds / refunds can be found here: Refunds.

Can I charge a surcharge on the payment methods I offer?

Companies are no longer allowed to charge surcharges for payments by debit card, credit card (Visa and Mastercard), bank transfer and direct debit. This rule has been in effect since the introduction of PSD2 (February 2019).

This is allowed for other payment methods such as PayPal, iDeal and Klarna. But since June 2014, it cannot be more than the actual cost. For example, if a company itself pays €0.29 for a payment, no higher amount may be passed on to the customers. The costs vary per payment method. It remains unclear to customers what these 'actual costs' are.

It is also not allowed to set a payment fee for Riverty (AfterPay).

How will I be notified of upcoming statusses of a transaction?

A push is sent for each transaction containing the details of the specific transaction.
