Understand Daylight Saving Time (DST) and its impact on local time settlements


Daylight Saving Time (DST) is a practice that shifts the clock forward by one hour during warmer months to extend evening daylight. This adjustment can affect the time difference between your local time zone and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which in turn impacts how we batch your transactions.

How DST affects transaction settlements

When transitioning into or out of DST, the 24-hour period used to batch your transactions may temporarily change. However, once the transition is complete, the batching period returns to the standard 24 hours. Our settlement and reporting processes are designed to automatically adapt to DST if your time zone observes it. This means your balance will be settled based on the previous day's local midnight time.

Verifying DST in your region

It's important to note that not all regions observe DST. To determine if your settlement time zone supports DST, refer to the settlement details page. This page provides the time difference to UTC under both standard and DST times, helping you verify whether DST applies to your area.
