Common Report Questions
Q: Why doesn't the Credit Card payments total on my Total Payments Received report match with the amount deposited in my bank account from the Card Processor for the same date range?
A: The amount deposited in your bank account from the credit card processor should match the amount of credit card sales from your Total Payments Received report for the same date range. One common reason these may not match is if your credit card batch time is not at midnight. If your credit card batch time is earlier than midnight and you had payments come in after the batch time, those payments would not be deposited with that same day. This article walks you through how to check and update your batch time.
Q: How can I see what transactions make up the totals shown on this report?
A: To see the transactions that make up the totals on this report, download the Invoice Payment by Type report for the same date range. The Invoice Payment by Type report is the detailed version of the Total Payments Received report.
Q: Why doesn't the amount on my Total Payments Received report match with the amount one of my Revenue Summary reports for the same date range?
A: The Total Payments Received report pulls different data than any of the Revenue Summary reports do and therefore the two should not be compared or attempted to match. Total Payments Received is based on any transactions that occurred during the specified date range while the Revenue Summary reports are based on reservation nights that occur over the selected date range. Since a reservation that takes place in that time frame could have had a payment either before or after (or vice-versa), these two reports most likely will not match up.
