Merchant Center Review

To reconcile the credit card transaction you'll need to open the Merchant Center in CardPointe. 

  • Access the Merchant Center by logging in here:
  • Once logged in, select Reporting > Transactions
  • You will now need to reference the Billing Transaction or Billing Transaction Reference from the GiveSmart Fundraise transaction report to locate the transaction in the Merchant Center
    • Billing Transaction = Transaction #
    • Billing Transaction Reference = Auth Code
  • Enter the Transaction # (Billing Transaction) into the Search field to locate the transaction and review the status

View Batch/Deposit Details in the Merchant Center

In order to reconcile credit card transactions, open the Merchant Center in CardPointe by going to:

View the Fundring/Batch report.  This provides details of the GiveSmart Fundraise transactions included in each deposit to your bank account. 

  • Select Reporting > Funding to view a list of Funding Dates
  • Select a Funding Date


  • Once the funding date is selected, the full list of transactions deposited on that date will appear


The Funding Events tab will have additional details including the bank account information the transaction was deposited to. 


Negative net amounts reflect debits to your bank account.  These amounts will typically be associated with credit card processing fee deductions which are assessed at the beginning of each month to cover the prior month's processing period.  See more on merchant processing fees here
