When are direct debit payments processed and paid out?

If you create a direct debit payment before 16:00, the bank processes the payment the next business day. If you create a payment after 16:00, the amount is debited after 2 business days. On the first business day after the date of the direct debit, the status of the transaction in your Mollie Dashboard changes to Paid. We will pay you the amount after 10 business days. 

A direct debit payment knows different statuses and important moments. They are listed below:
