Why was my payment denied?

  • Updated

Possible reasons we've declined a payment.

There are a few reasons you may have been denied by our risk & compliance team.
It likely falls into one of the 3 categories below.

Non-business Transaction

Melio is only authorized to transfer payments between businesses so we can't process it if either side of the transaction is a personal account.

Fraud Risk

After performing a thorough background check, we've identified a risk of fraud.


Your business may not have enough information about it publicly available, restricting our ability to verify its legitimacy.
