The AutoReleaseFunds method is an online, synchronous web service that allows an external system to request a payment from the client’s Netcash account into the bank account configured against the account.

The calling system can opt to release a user-specified amount or to release all available funds as calculated on the date selected in the web service call.

Only valid banking dates between Monday and Friday may be selected.

Dates may not be in the past.

Requests for the release of funds on the current day must be submitted before 14h30.

The service returns a numeric response where  000  indicates a successful request.

Any other value represents a failed request.

NOTE: Existing entries in the Netcash payment queue can be manually edited by logging onto your account on the Netcash website.

To access the NIWS_NIF endpoint you require a Netcash Account service key.
