Automatic flush allows you to transfer any remaining funds on the card used to pay for that application to the main pool of funds, once the recurring payment has been made.
Let’s see an example:
- I set up a new application with its corresponding payment and I enable automatic flush.
- Usually, I am charged around 25 pounds but it varies month to month, so I set a budget of 30 pounds.
- Once the merchant charges the card each month, the remaining amount that I had allocated to the card will be sent back to my main account so that other apps can make use of those funds.
I won’t have to do anything, it will be done automatically after the merchant charges the card.
This is a great functionality for apps and services whose subscription charge varies, as it allows you to have as many funds as possible available for all apps, avoiding having unused pounds or euros scattered among several cards.
