Untracked Transactions:

If for some reason a merchant's tracking stops working, you may find you have a transaction that has not tracked through the network. You can add an untracked transaction by going to Untracked Transactions - Add.

Make sure that all of the relevant boxes are filled in to ensure the merchant can view all of the transaction details.

The merchant will be notified that the transaction has been uploaded, and will then have to either approve, decline or dispute the untracked transaction.

Untracked Transactions – Upload allows you to submit a whole list of untracked transactions. What you will need to do is set up an Excel document and then fill in the columns with the headings; Original Transaction Date, Merchant, Sales Reference, Customer Reference, Sales amounts, Expected Commission and notes.

You can also download the template for this by going to the ‘Untracked Transactions – Upload’ page and then selecting ‘Download Template’. To upload the file select the box ‘Choose File’ and select the correct file.

You can view a report of your untracked transactions by going to Untracked Transactions - Reports. Here you can see which transactions are still pending for the merchant to action, and which have been approved, declined or disputed.
