Transaction Day - Day on which Merchant completes the Order from his Customer by Capturing it in the EBS Backend.
Settlement Day - Day on which EBS Settle the Transaction Amount to Merchant for the Transaction done on Transaction Day
Note - If any Bank Holidays or Unexpected Holidays happen to be on the Settlement Day, the Settlement is postponed to the next Working Day. For Example: If Tuesday happens to be Bank Holiday, The Settlement is postponed to Wednesday. So the transactions done on Saturday, Sunday(this week) are settled on Wednesday(next week).
