Before you begin

🚨 Changing your bank account details may create a temporary hold on payouts while your request is reviewed. You may experience a payout delay of several days while this change is processed.

In order to change the bank account details, you must have access to the email address used to originally apply for Lightspeed Payments. If you are switching to a new legal entity,  please get in touch with your Account Manager.

If you have multiple Sites or locations using Lightspeed Payments, you must change the bank account details for each site. 

This process changes the bank account where you receive payouts (deposits) from Lightspeed Payments. To change the bank account that Lightspeed charges for your subscription please see this article. 

This is only available for merchants who applied via Back Office. If you applied via a link from your Account Executive or Account Manager, please reach out to your Account Manager for assistance.
