Thank you everyone for your help on my question about merchants - it all makes a lot more sense now.
I keep finding references to "ClaimXchanges" but nowhere that actually explains fully what they are... I initially thought that they were the same thing as Claim Bonuses, but I don't think this is the case?
Can someone explain this concept to me?
Basically, when you process an OutXchange, you get an Instant Claims Bonus. When you process a ClaimXchange, you get a Standard Claims Bonus (SCB).
So for example, you process a $1000.00 OutXchange, and you collect your ICB. At the same time, a $1000.00 ClaimXchange is created and added to your ClaimXchange list, and attached to it is a SCB, which you receive once you process that individual ClaimXchange.
So, say you have processed five OutXchanges for the following amounts:
If you now look at your ClaimXchages list it will look identical, plus it will list the size of the SCB you get for processing those ClaimXchanges:
Now, you can either collect these individually, 'Single', or you can 'Melt' them into a Melted Balance and just collect what you can according to what funds you have. You normally only 'Melt' down Standard Claim Bonuses if you don't have the exact amount.
So using my example above, if you have collected all the others and have the $5000.00 SCB left over, but you only have $2000.00 in funds to process with, then you 'melt' it down and then just collect $2000.00 of that $5000.00, therefore leaving $3000.00 in the Melted Balance for whenever you have funds to claim some more.
I hope this makes sense.
