Overview

A settlement is the transfer of funds from shopper to merchant via all the check-up phases such as verification by bank and acquirers, after the transaction itself has been finalized. Settlements are initiated by the system internally. 

In Verifone Central, under the Reports  menu, you can access the Settlements Reports where you can search and filter your organization's settlement batches. The Settlements Reports include all the transaction settlement batches sent to your bank or payments processor. You can select the date range and the organizations for which you would like to create and view the reports. Also, you can filter reports by settlement status. 

   Only users with Merchant Reviewer or Merchant Supervisor roles can access this report.

The reports have been made available for the following processors and acquirers:

  • Verifone
  • NETS
  • EVRY
  • Swedbank
  • ABS
  • Wynid
