Approval rules are currently only available to a few businesses. To join the early access program, please fill in this form.
Payment approvals help businesses control their payments on Wise. You can enable Payment approvals in two ways:
Payments that need approval will require one Admin to approve it. If a payment that requires approval is set up, eligible Admins will be automatically notified to review it. Once approved, the payment can then be funded and sent out.
Keep in mind: Admins can’t approve their own payments. Another Admin will need to approve it.
Transfers that have been set up and are awaiting approval will appear under the Needs your attention section on the top of the Home page. After a transfer is approved/ rejected, it will appear amongst your other transfers in the Activity feed.
Please ensure you have Transfers and balances notifications turned on to receive approval-related notifications.
Manage your notifications (under Notifications > Transfers and balances)
