Wrap Up Your Reporting – In a Box

Posted by Ben Kauder on Sep 20, 2017 9:24:38 AM

An important part of the convenience of our Payfac in a Box™ payments integration solution is the built-in reporting functionality. When payments (authorization/settlements) are processed you have the option to receive a raw data feed (in CSV file format) of that data as the software developer. This gives you a variety of options to monitor payments processed, reconcile accounts, control your customer’s experience and more.

By using the Payfac in a Box™ API for onboarding/contracting and authorizations, you have the visibility into the payment traffic but most importantly the settlements/disbursements. This allows for you to see the full flow of the transaction through your integrated processing interface with Singular.
