Frequently asked questions
As long as you can edit the CSS of your website and add custom code you will be able to embed or link out to your Legl checkout. Note that this does not apply to websites that are built from standard templates (e.g. Wix).
The money is received into your bank account in three calendar days. All card types (Visa/Mastercard/AMEX) pay out on the same payout schedule. You’ll be able to see all the payments in real-time from your dashboard. And we send the transfer summary when the funds are received into your nominated accounts.
You have the option to enable or disable American Express payments and international card payments. These transactions have a higher processing fee of 3.45%.
For more urgent cases, yes, we do recommend that the client does a same day or next day transfer of funds directly into the firm’s account. However, for invoice payments and requesting money on account we find clients tend to pay much quicker if you give them an instant and convenient payment method. Our payment requests have an average time to pay of just eight hours!
Neither Quill or Legl hold the money at any stage. All funds are transferred directly from the client into your account.
Your firm will receive a bulk payment each morning in your connected bank account along with an email at 9am every morning to direct you to the transfers tab so you can see the clients funds that make up the lump sum.
Unlike standard BACs postings, which often require an employee to manually chase and reconcile payments with specific accounts, through Legl you can clearly see who has sent money and for which matter.
You will have real-time payment data available in your Quill dashboard and this is available to export to Excel or CSV.
To refund a payment you just need to contact Legl and send the clients funds back, Legl will then refund the clients card directly.
Currently the payment tools are for taking payments only, but we will make sure to keep you updated with all further product developments.
The integration will allow you to connect both your client and office accounts so funds are always being directed to the correct account. When money is requested via Legl, the client can only pay the amount you’ve submitted, which minimises the risk of accidental digits being added to the payment amount, which causes undue stress from an MLRO standpoint.
You will see the full card holder’s name to identify if the person who paid was someone other than your client. You can then follow your firm’s AML policy to complete KYC checks on that individual.
There is a Legl platform fee of £20 per month, plus any transaction fees.
