Merchant Appeals

WePay understands that from time to time, the decisions made during review can negatively impact you, the merchant. Should you feel that an adverse action was unwarranted or in error, such as a cancelled payment or the closure of your WePay account, you have the right to appeal the decision.

 

To appeal the case, please send an email to merchantappeals@wepay.com. Our team will be able to begin the process here, which generally takes 3 business days from submission.

 

Appealing the decision will always require some additional documentation so that our Trust and Safety team may review your case. Please review the email sent notifying you of the adverse action, then refer to the table below for more details on the types of adverse action and the documents required to begin an appeal. 

 

If you feel there is any additional documentation or information that may support your case, please provide that as well. The more information provided with your appeal will help our Appeals Team thoroughly evaluate your case.

 

Our Appeals Team reserves the right to request additional documentation or follow-up information in order to process your appeal request. We will not be able to review an appeal without the applicable documentation. Thanks for your understanding.
