Enhancement 1: New and Enhanced Reports

New Reports

Settlement Detail Report: This report is based on the existing Spend By Transaction report and provides additional details on all transactions that settled during the date range selected. The report is useful for reconcilement purposes and company transaction monitoring. New fields have been added that haven’t been included in reporting before:
 
  • AuthIdentityResponse - 6 character alpha numeric code that often appears on the store receipt
  • TerminalID - 8 character alpha numeric code to identify a merchant terminal
  • MerchantLocalTime - time of transaction (card swipe) from the merchant in the merchant’s time zone
  • TransactionTime - time transaction was received by PEX system (Eastern Time)
  • HoldTime - time that PEX deducts the funds from available balance due to an approved authorization (Eastern Time)
  • SettlementTime - time settlement transaction was posted to the PEX system (Eastern Time)
  • AuthorizationID - unique PEX identifier associated with the purchase (card swipe)
  • TransactionID - unique PEX identifier associated with the settlement transaction
  • PIN/Signature indicator - indicates whether the transaction was completed using a PIN
  • Type - indicates whether card was swiped or card data entered into terminal manually (could be point of sale, phone or internet purchase)
  • Transaction Currency - [international transactions]  3 digit currency code for purchase amount prior to conversion to US Dollars
  • Transaction Source Amount - [international transactions]  Amount in the local currency that appears on the receipt
Authorization Detail Report: This report provides details on all approved purchases (card swipes) during the date range selected, regardless of whether the transaction has settled or not. Format is similar to the Settlement Detail report. 

Outstanding Authorizations Report: This report provides details on all approved purchases (card swipes) that haven’t settled at the time that the report is requested. This report can be used to manage your cash position since it provides the amount of pending transactions that haven’t settled yet.
 

Enhanced Reports

Decline Report: Enhanced fields (similar format as Settlement Detail Report)

Business Account Funding Transactions
  • Created By field added to indicate Administrator initiated the transaction
Card Funding Transactions
  • Created By field added to indicate Administrator inititated the transaction

Enhancement 2: Admin Report Scheduling

Attention: Admins

Reports on the Admin website can be run immediately or be scheduled to run periodically. Once a report is scheduled, it can only be edited or deleted by the Administrator who created it.  

The creator will receive an email confirmation that the report is scheduled. They will also receive an email once the report is run and posted to the Report queue page. Reports are available for download for 3 days and are in .CSV (comma-separated value) format.

When scheduling reports, keep in mind that the date/time settings are Eastern Time.

To edit the parameters of a scheduled report, go to Reports and select the Report queue tab.
