# Collaborators

  • Within the Collaborators section, you can visualize the list of collaborators having access to the payment solution.
  • For a given collaborator, various permissions can be defined, depending on roles/activities.
  • A merchant can add an additional collaborator, using the '+' icon. Newly registered collaborator will have access to exactly the same list of payment solution(s) than the creator.


To manage permissions, you can access the collaborators management interface via the "Settings" menu in the navbar, if your permission profile allows you to do so (minimum permission profile required: ADMIN).

Here you can define the permissions profile for each collaborator linked to your payment solutions.

The existing permission profiles are :

  • READER (read only: purchases, orders)
  • SELLER (READER + purchase link generation)
  • MANAGER (SELLER + purchase management, refund)
  • ACCOUNTANT (MANAGER + transfers view, Invoices & Credit notes view, reports & KPIs view)
  • ADMIN (ACCOUNTANT + collaborators management, payment solution settings...)

To edit a collaborator's permission profile :

  • Click on the 🖊️ next to their current profile.

Manage permissions 1

  • Once you have selected the correct profile, click "Validate" to confirm your changes.

Manage permissions 2

  • After you validate your changes, a success message is displayed. In the event of an error, this message will explain the cause of the error.

  • Refunds / Refunds

Partial or full refunds can be made on payment. You have the option of monitoring the status of refunds or making a refund request for accounts set up in transfer mode.


If repayments have been made, the list of repayment transactions is displayed.


To refund a customer, the operation is different between the modes using a virtual card (back mode) and the transfer mode:

  • Mode back (with virtual card): connect to your PSP (Payment Service Provider) and re-credit the virtual card; the customer's bank card will be re-credited afterwards.

  • Mode transfer: the claim is made from the dashbord Pledg :

    • Click on the button "Request a refund".
    • Fill in the amount you want to reimburse
    • Click on "Request a refund"; a notification will tell you that the refund has been taken into account.


Notes concerning the transfer mode


To refund the full amount of a customer's order, you must fill in the total amount of the customer's order; If you fill in the amount corresponding to the due dates drawn, this will correspond to a partial refund and the other due dates will be debited. To refund partially a customer's order, enter the amount you want to refund. This partial request will not necessarily produce a credit on the customer's credit card. The amount you want to refund will reduce or cancel the customer's most distant debit dates in priority.


Refunds are usually effective at D+1 and will appear at that time in the payment refund list in the dashboard.

# View latest transfers

For accounts set up in `transfer' mode, i.e. a daily transfer is sent to the merchant for an amount corresponding to all the orders of the day, the list of transfers made can be consulted.

This section allows you to reconcile the payment of your orders with the transfers you receive on your bank account.



  • Amount: the amount of the transfer
  • Status: sent when the transfer has been successfully issued
  • Reference: the reference of the transfer transmitted
  • Date: the date of the transfer

Click on the "View All" button to see a list of all transfers. You can then view the details of a transfer with a list of the orders concerned.


In the "Payments" section, you can consult the list of corresponding orders and the reference you have sent to Pledg.

When the amount is negative, this corresponds to a refund. When you make a refund request, we take the refund amount from your bank account and credit the customer's credit card.
