Transaction Audit

From time to time managers may receive a request from PayChoice asking for details on payments. Typically, PayChoice wants to confirm that the transactions are legimitate and ordered by your customer.

To enable PayChoice review, managers need to report the types of products or services sold and dates of invoicing/receipting.

This information is provided in the "PayChoice Transaction Detail" report. To run this report for a particular transaction:

  1. Find your customer either in Search or from the 'New Transaction' notification on the home page.
  2. Click through from the search page to the customer's ledger via the 'L' icon.
  3. Find the transaction that you want to detail. Typically, a PayChoice transaction will include the credit card name and the authorisation code.
  4. Check the box on the transaction you found above.
  5. Click the "Report" button at the bottom of the page.
  6. Once in the "Report Wizard", select the "PayChoice Transaction Detail" report in the Finance section

After printing or copying the report, you can forward to PayChoice for review.
