How to use the report?

Once the report is ready and downloaded, you will have a file to review the spreadsheets or import into the reconciliation program you use.

To review the report we recommend downloading it in .csv format to open it in the program that you view it. Configure your program to support the UTF-8 format, so you avoid reading problems.

What does the report contain?

The report is composed by:

Report compositionDescription
Initial Available Balance
Initial balance.

The detail of the money releases that includes the initial balance.

Money blocks due to disputes.

Unlocks for the resolution of disputes.

The sum of the operations that make up each section.

It is the final result composed of the sum of all subtotals.

That is to say:
subtotal Release + subtotal Block + subtotal Unblock = total result

In addition, the report reflects the accounting concepts of owe (money you must pay) and will have (money you must collect) in two columns, one for each concept:

Your will have will be seen in the NET_CREDIT column.
Your owe will be seen in the NET_DEBIT column.

You will see the available balance from the released transactions in the NET_CREDIT (credited) and NET_DEBIT (debited) columns, depending on whether the amount is positive or negative. You will also see there the gross amount and the financing costs, taxes and shipping costs that we deducted to reach the net amount.

What happens if a transfer fails?

If this happens, the report is still valid. The money returns to your account and the transaction will appear in the report as a new line in the NET_CREDIT column.

The movements related to the money withdrawals and/or transfers from your available money are displayed as "Payout", and all the mediations that may arise when a complaint is initiated or resolved are shown as "Dispute".
