After the payment
Once a payment is processed, there are still important tasks that need to be completed to ensure the transaction is properly settled and reconciled. IXOPAY platform offers powerful tools to help merchants manage these post-payment tasks efficiently.
After a transaction has been authorized, the settlement process takes place. This involves transferring the funds from the customer's account to the merchant's account. Settlement can take various amounts of time depending on the payment method and the payment service provider used.
IXOPAY offers a post-processing engine that standardizes the settlement process and resolves any resulting conflicts across different payment service providers and payment methods. By configuring settlement data fetchers and settings, merchants can easily manage the settlement process and import the data into their accounting systems.
