Merchant Console Check Transaction Reports

There are several kinds of pre-made check transaction reports available in the Reports section of your merchant console. Each of these reports may be printed, emailed or exported.

The format for these reports will be similar, varying only slightly based on the type of report you have selected. The types of reports available include the following pre-made electronic check transaction reports which are divided into three categories: Settled, Returns, Declines and Errors. You can view each of these reports ordered by Date, Source, Reason, User or Card Type (Sales only). The following reports are included:

  • Check Transaction Summary
  • Deposit Report
  • All Transactions by Date
  • Settled by Date
  • Settled by Source
  • Settled by Users
  • Returns by Date
  • Returns by Source
  • Returns by Reason
  • Returns by User
  • Declines by Date
  • Declines by Reason
  • Declines by Source
  • Declines by User

The returned check reports will display all information regarding checks that have been returned from the customer's bank due to insufficient funds or a bad routing number, or any other number of reasons. To see why these checks have been returned, use the “Returns by Reason” report. See above for details about the difference between errors and declines.
