In response to numerous merchant requests, we are please to announce our new
automated batch closing system, Auto-Batch. Auto-Batch will be run each evening
from Monday through Friday, and will close/settle all Authorized credit card orders
in your Close/Settle Batch file. In addition you shall receive a Settlement Report
of each batch closed by Auto-Batch. This will include a breakdown of charges
based on the card type (Visa, MasterCard, Etc.) as well as batch totals.
If you wish to control which orders are batched when, be sure you
have your system set to Non-Auth Live so that you can Authorize them
when you are ready to fill and ship them. Orders that are not
Authorized will not be included in your Close/Settle Batch file, and
therefore will not be included in Auto-Batch.
