The transaction is the payment action initiated by the shopper or the merchant. The action is finalized with the confirmation of the checkout phase. Unlike settlements, finalizing the transaction does not imply automatically that the funds have been successfully transferred.
The Dashboard Transactions Reports page in Verifone Central allows you to view and export comprehensive reports on transactions that you can filter according to Organisation, Merchant ID, Currency, Product or Payment Method (wallet) used for the transaction. The same Transactions report can be generated by choosing Transactions in the drop-down list of the Reports menu section.
To view and export transaction reports from Dashboard, follow these steps:
- Log in to your Verifone Central account.
- Navigate to Reports and select Transactions.
Your transaction report includes all transactions from all your Payment Channels, including refunds and pre-authorizations.
In addition to filtering your transactions by the organisation and Merchant ID, you can also apply the following filters to your transactions:
- Transaction or settlement date
- Transaction details
- Transaction identifiers
Filter by transaction or settlement date
Click Created date or Settled date to filter transactions based on a date range.
- If ‘Created date’ is selected, the filter will include transactions initiated during the selected date range
- If ‘Settled date’ is selected, the filter will include transactions settled during the selected date range
Filter by transaction details
Select + Add Filter to filter transactions based on the following transaction details:
- Channel: Where the sale originated, e.g., from terminal or online (Note: For New Zealand, the ‘POS’ means the transaction was processed on an EFTPOS terminal in-store)
- Currency: Currency in which the transaction was tendered, e.g., New Zealand Dollar (NZD)
- Product: The card type used by the cardholder
- Transaction type: The type of transaction, e.g., sale or refund

- Wallet: You can view and export reports that display your transactions based on the wallet used (Google Pay, Apple Pay, MobilePay, Vipps, etc.)
- Stored Credential Type: Stored data used to authorize payment in recurring transactions. There are two types:
- Sign up- for the initial payment
- Charge- for recurring payments
- Processor: The acquirer bank or institution that processed the payment.
- Account Type: The type of account used in the transaction, whether it is a Debit or a Credit account.
Filter by transaction identifiers
You can search for transactions based on transaction identifiers (see below). Select a transaction identifier from the dropdown menu, enter the correct value for the transaction(s) you are searching for into the search bar and then click Search.
You can find some of these identifiers on your terminal receipts.
Note: Applicable for NZ only.
- Terminal ID: You can find this on all of your receipts. It is the last four digits of the ‘TSP’ number
- STAN (System Trace Audit Number): The 6-digit number incremented for each transaction the terminal sends
- Note: New Zealand users can find this on their EFTPOS receipt as the ‘Tran’ number. Example: 000287.
- RRN (Reference Retrieval Number): Only available on some merchant EFTPOS receipts. Made up of the date the transaction was processed and the transaction STAN number (System Trace Audit Number). Example: 200807030680.
- Batch Number: This is the settlement date of the transaction in the format YYDDMM
- Reference: For transactions processed on an EFTPOS terminal in-store, this is the RRN

- Transaction ID: For New Zealand transactions processed on an EFTPOS terminal in-store, this is the RRN
