Home / Guides/ Manage Credit
For Product verticals such as Credit or Fleet, you may create a credit limit on your account holder's financial account based on your underwriting criteria, agreements and product guidelines. The credit limit establishes a maximum spending limit for a given time period and authorizations that exceed the credit limit will be declined.
Once you have created a credit limit, you have the flexibility to update a credit limit as you factor in new information, such as changes in your customers' financial situations.
As part of this feature, Highnote tracks the total credit extended to your Account Holders' Financial Accounts and ensures the extended credit does not exceed your Product Funding balance.
Note: Setting or updating a credit limit is an asynchronous process to ensure your ledger balances and validations are in check.
Once you have requested to create or update the credit limit on a Financial Account, you can query for and display the Financial Account Credit Limit status.
