Buffer Account – Reconciliation

     

    Reconciliation file details

    Contis creates a reconciliation file at the end of the business day containing all authorisation records posted to the client’s URL that day. The file is put into the SFTP folder to be picked up

    Clients can verify all authorisations of specific day(s) and settle accordingly using this daily reconciliation file on that basis.

    The reconciliation file will be a tab separated .csv file.

    Filename format: “[SchemeCode]_Auth_[ddMMyyyyHHmmss].csv”.

    File availability time: Every day between 02h00 to 03h00 (UK time). Time is configurable.

    The file can be configured as follows:

    • Maximum of 5000 records in one file
    • One reconciliation file every day (according to file schedule)

    Clients must contact Contis to configure the file.

    Sample Reconciliation File:

    [ClientCode]_Auth_23012018180030.csv

    Clients must contact Contis to configure the file.
