Batch Date

The date transactions are grouped as a batch and deposited.

Gross Raised

Total credit card payments are processed on a batch date before the removal of the credit card transaction fee.


Shows fees deducted from the Gross Raised to cover the card processors' fees. CardConnect deducts the transaction fees at the time of the transaction.

Fees passed to the purchaser are shown in the Transaction Fee section of the Revenue Report.

Note: The processing fees are deducted and reflected within the batch report Adjustment/Fees column regardless if fees are passed to the purchaser. This amount is intended to cover the credit card transaction costs found in your Batch Report.

To capture the full amount of the fees at a variable rate:

  1. From Admin Navigation, click Checkout & Payments > Payment & Fee Settings > Transaction Fees > Processing Fee (%).
  2. Adjust the Processing Fee, which adjusts the Effective Rate, the percentage a user pays to cover the purchase cost, and the transaction fees.
    • The default is 3.5% of the processing fee, which adjusts the Effective Rate to 3.627%.
    • Set the processing fee to 3.95%, which adjusts the Effective Rate to 4.112% to capture the full amount with a variable rate.


Seen as zero unless a user submits a chargeback, or a reversal of their payment, within a batch.

Note: When a chargeback is submitted, GiveSmart is not notified. Chargebacks occur outside of GiveSmart. Therefore, limited information is available in your Batch Reports.

Chargebacks are handled directly between the cardholders issuing bank and the acquiring bank of CardConnect (Wells Fargo). The Issuing Bank forcibly reverses the transfer of funds. Consumer protection laws allow for the cardholder to "win" by default. The Merchant may dispute the validity, in which case Acquiring Bank and Issuing Bank shall reach an agreement. Included in the dispute paperwork is a case number and phone number Merchant Services (First Data) (800-443-4651) to contact. A dedicated team helps with chargebacks and can fax a copy of the Chargeback paperwork.

When a Chargeback is submitted by a cardholder, notification from First Data (Merchant Services) is sent via mail within 24-48 hours from the Chargeback Date. The information contains dispute instructions and the available information regarding the transaction. A merchant has two weeks to submit a dispute. Chargeback funds are typically removed within three days of the Chargeback date.

When contacting First Data, provide them with your Merchant ID which is located at View Admin > Settings > Global > Advance Settings > Credit Card Payments > Merchant Account Status.
