|From : (Date)||Specify the From date : (Starting Date to check)|

|Transaction Sources :||Select which transaction sources to be included in the credit card batch|
|Limit to Division||This will allow the user to limit the iVeri upload to a particular division.|
|Limit to payment method||This will allow the user to see all transactions already paid (e.g Air tickets via BSP)via Direct Settlement and to be paid via the credit card.

Retrieving the physical information from Windows Invoicing :
Once the Credit card batch header is com pleted, and the Retrieval Criteria is selected, the actual information now needs to be retrieved into the batch:
In order to retrieve the information, click on the button at the bottom of the Credit Card Batch screen :
Once the import is completed a summary of all information imported into the current batch will be displayed :
Note : The system gives a short summary of the number of transactions imported, the total chargeable amount and the user information.
Flagging / Deleting / Clearing the unwanted or contra items :
Once the batch register is populated with all the transactions retrieved from the Windows invoicing system, the user now has the option of scanning thru the list and clearing the list from unwanted items. This is particularly handy when invalid credit card numbers have been submitted, or where invoices and credit notes containing the same information can be contra’d.
The column headings can be used to sort by any column, and may be dragged and dropped into the order you wish.
- Sorting :
In order to sort by card number simply “double click” with your mouse on the heading :
Note how the system sorted by credit cad number. You may now scan thru the transactions and search for any visible invalid card numbers.

Any unwanted items may be excluded. In order to do so, simply highlight the “unwanted” item and click on the button :
A reason for flagging must be entered, select the to find a list of predefined reasons :
Click on to flag the item.

In order to remove an item from this Export batch only, highlight the selected item and click on . A warning will appear prompting the user for c onfirmation :
- Clearing the current export list :
The need some times arises for the list to be cleared, due to incorrect retrieval criteria used (e.g. Incorrect dates, Incorrect account number etc).
In order to clear the register, simply click on .
A message block will appear, advising that all items previously shown in this register, will become available again for re-retrieval into the batches:
Ensure the is ticked and click on the . You may now continue from step 2 onward.
(Optional) Adding Authority Numbers to the credit card transactions:
It may from time to time become necessary to manually add authority numbers to a particular credit card. The reason for most manual authority numbers, is that the Daily limit may have been exceeded, and that an authority code was telephonically obtained, prior to uploading to iVeri. This section will handle the manual adding of authority numbers to the selected credit cards :
In order to add the Authority Numbers manually, highlight the selected credit card simply click on the button:
Simply enter the authority code and click on the button.
Great caution must be taken when manually inserting the authority codes. Users must ensure at all times that the correct credit card transaction is selected.
