Cancel without updating the ledger

⭐️ Important: If you've already canceled a payable or receivable in your ledger and now need to cancel it in Routable, you will want to select the option to Cancel without updating the ledger. You can do this when canceling, in the right side panel as shown below:

Canceling a check payment

Routable’s cancellation window for a check is 3 hours from the time you send the payment.

e.g. Let’s say you send a payment at 8:47am PT. It will need to be canceled before 11:47am PT on your side. If you miss that window, reach out to our Support team.

If you need to cancel, void, or issue a stop payment on a check that has already been sent:

  1. Contact your bank to void the check, then

  2. Contact our Support team to update the status of your payment in Routable
