Note that if a user is inquiring about receiving notifications twice, such as a settlement notice, this could be because they are a recipient of ID317 and have their notifications for the same things turned on in the NMI portal. You'll need to turn off their notices in the NMI portal.

Update Your Billing Information

Update Your Billing Information

NMI will bill and debit your account directly. As a merchant you are unable to update or change your own billing information. See below for how these must get updated.

  • Need to add billing information for the first time = email as this requires a meeting with a member of our team to enter on our end with you
  • Need to update billing information that is currently either a credit card or a bank account to a bank account = email as this requires a meeting with a member of our team to enter on our end with you
  • Need to update billing information that is currently either a credit card or a bank account to a credit card = email and CEO Juice will work with NMI to get this option turned on for you

Watch this 9 minute video on how to use transactions reports (note that it does not include CEO Juice portal instructions) and see instructions below.

In the NMI portal, click on Transactions from the dashboard shortcut, or click on Transaction Reports from the left side options

669 2.png

In the Transaction Reports screen, there are several ways you can search for your customer's transactions such as First and Last Name of payment, Email Address and Transaction ID. The easiest way to search is to use the Transaction ID which is found inside of your CEO Juice payment portal. 

669 4.png

to find the Transaction ID, log into your online payment portal and from the dropdown options next to your profile icon select Payments

669 5.png

You can view all payments by searching with no filters, or you can use the filters to locate specific payments. Note that payment history is available for about 30 days after the payment date and are no longer visible after that.

Copy the transaction ID number from the payment portal and enter it into the Transaction ID field and click Submit (be sure to check the Start and End Dates in the search to ensure it is within the timeframe of the transaction you're searching for)

You will be taken to the Transaction Report which will show basic information such as the status of the payment as well as the type. To see more details, click on the hyperlink in the ID column.

669 8.png

In this Transaction Detail you'll be able to see further information on this transaction

In the Transaction History section of the Transaction Detail, it will list the status of the transaction as well as when it eventually settles or if it has failed. If there are failures, see our section on resolving transaction failures.

Resolve Transaction Failures

Resolve Transaction Failures

Watch this 1 minute video on transaction failures and see instructions below.

Note on ACH Transaction Failures - due to an increase in fraud, many banks will not allow unknown ACH transactions to go through.  When introducing the payment platform, we recommend letting your customers know ahead of time that they will need to ensure their bank has whitelisted Paya's bank ID #3383693141 to avoid failures as noted below.

If an ACH Or Credit Card transaction fails, the exact details of that failure can be found by logging into NMI

Once logged in, find the transaction that you are researching. Click here on finding transactions related to your customers and go to the transaction detail.

Top of transaction detail

669 24.png

The bottom of transaction detail shows the failure with an error code, in the example below the code is R29.

669 25.png

Click here for a list of credit card error codes and their meaning.

Click here for a list of Check/ACH error codes on their meaning

Two common error codes that require a bank letter from your customer to resolve:

R09 means your customer has stopped payment on a transaction.

R29 means “corporate customer advises not authorized” which indicates that your company has advised your bank that your company was not authorized to debit money from your account, therefore the payment failed.  It’s possible for security reasons your bank is just blocking it, however even if resolved on your end, any future payments will automatically be declined. 

To resolve both errors, you will need to submit a letter from your customers bank that validates the account information, indicates that the R29 has been removed, and that our processing ID# 3383693141 has been added (or whitelisted) to the account. 

Attached at the bottom of this documentation page is an example letter you can send to your customer and an example letter of what is required from their bank.

Once received, email the bank letter to the appropriate check/ACH processor below and ensure the email includes the transaction number, your customers name and the date of the failure:

ACH - Nuvei (formerly Paya)

*Note that if you use other processors than those above, you'll need to reach out to your sales rep at the processor to find out who the letter should be sent to

Once the failure issue is resolved, you'll need to void the payment in e-automate that is from the failure in NMI. This will re-open the balance due in e-automate for the invoice which will sync the balance due over to the payment portal. Once the balance due is seen in the portal your customer can pay the invoice again. 


Failures due to ACH payment exceeding allowed ticket amount:

If this occurs, your customer (and any of your internal emails listed as recipients) will receive a message via ID317 that looks like the below.

669 57.png

You will need to reach out to to request an increase. If you need the maximum ticket amount to be over $25,000 you will need to sign the "Paya $25k Addendum" attached at the bottom of the page and email it to Note that transactions over $25k result in an added 0.15% fee per transaction billed to you.

Process a Payment Inside the Virtual Terminal

Process a Payment Inside the Virtual Terminal

Watch this 4 minute video on how to process a payment inside the virtual terminal and see instructions below.

There may be times when you want to process a credit card payment for your customer manually and you may do so within the virtual terminal in the NMI portal using the instructions below.

Note that transactions made in this virtual terminal are done completely outside of the CEO Juice payment portal (ID669) and transactions notifications (ID317). In other words, the payment will not auto-post in e-automate and no payment notification will auto-send to your customer, you must do both manually.

The example below follows a Card Sale, and the process is the same for Check Sale.

In the NMI portal on your home page, select either Card Sale or Check Sale under your Virtual Terminal options. 

669 28.png

Enter the customer's payment information into the required fields (marked by red asterisk) in the Virtual Terminal. You may choose to enter further information that is not required if you'd like.

669 29.png

Scroll to the bottom of the terminate and when ready click Charge. You can also check the box to Send Receipt Email to your customer and it will send to the email address you added to the Shipping Information section.

Process Refunds and Void Transactions

Process Refunds and Void Transactions

Watch this 3 minute video on how to process refunds and voids on transactions. We do not have written instructions on how to do this because CEO Juice does not have access to view these areas.

Note that payments made within the CEO Juice payment portal cannot be voided or refunded within that portal and must be done within the NMI portal.
