Set and Update a Credit Limit

Set and Update a Credit Limit

Setting or updating a credit limit is an asynchronous process with the Highnote team to ensure your ledger balances and validations are in check.

For Product verticals like Credit or Fleet, you can 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 period, and authorizations exceeding the credit limit will be declined.

Once you have created a credit limit, you have the flexibility to update credit limits 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 Card Product’s limits.

You can use the following mutation to set and update a credit limit:
