What is batching out?
The process by which the merchant and cardholder’s banks exchange transaction data, resulting in the depositing of funds into your specified bank account.

How do I do it?
There are two methods of batching. Most ProMedia LLC terminals may be set to Auto Batch for your convenience. Example: Auto batching can be set to occur at 10:30 pm each night and will include a batch report for that day. Second. you can batch any time throughout the day manually with a touch of one key.

What if I don’t?
If your terminal is set to Auto Batch, but in the event the terminal does not batch, the display on your terminal will read “Need To Batch”, and you can manually batch.

Can I pre verify funds on a customers card?
