Settlement detail report

The settlement detail report is recommended to reconcile your administration. It includes all payments that are settled i.e. paid out to you by us. This report based on the transaction level is generated with the settlement batches to sort out which transactions that went through our system was paid out. Adyen pays out to your merchant accounts twice every week i.e. Tuesday and Friday and should be expected on these days only. This transaction level report specifies the gross/net settlement amounts for captures, refunds, chargebacks (where present), fee totals, deposit corrections, and the total amount settled.

Payments are settled periodically to your bank account. On your bank statement, they are reported in the following way:








TX4313726XT batch 4, [yourMerchantAccountName]

The fields have the following meaning:

  • 1323.94.782 is Adyen's Dutch settlement bank account. Depending on the country and currency of settlement this number may be different.
  • The payment originates from ADYEN, the Adyen Client Management Foundation that receives and settles your payments.
  • TX4313726XT is the unique payout reference code that you use to reconcile payouts against your bank statement.
  • The batch number, batch 4 in the example, is the settlement sequence number. It starts at 1 to flag the first settlement, and it increases incrementally by one unit with each subsequent settlement.
  • 1842.21 is the total amount of the settlement. This sum matches the payout amount in the settlement detail report.

The batch number in the settlement to your bank corresponds to the batch number in the settlement detail report.
For example:[yourMerchantAccountName]/settlement_detail_report_batch_4.csv

Multi-currency transactions  

  • If you have multiple settlement currencies, the settlement detail report contains a merchant payout line for each applicable settlement currency.
  • If a settlement batch contains transactions with processing currencies other than the settlement currency, then these gross amounts are converted to the net amount in the settlement currency.
    For example, if your settlement currency is EUR, and if you also process payments in SEK, you see both currencies and amounts in the reports, including the exchange rate used to convert the processing amount (SEK) to the settlement amount (EUR).
    To check the exchange rate used for the currency conversion, refer to the relevant Adyen's
    daily Exchange Rate Report.

Match settlements to transactions

Depending on your implementation, you can store one or more keys per transaction.
For example, you can configure your implementation to store the merchant transaction identifier generated by your system, and then passed on to Adyen via the reference or the merchantReference fields. Alternatively, you can store the Adyen-generated pspReference.
Adyen reports include both references, so you can easily tie the report line items back to the individual transactions in your system.

We recommend automating the matching process. The following basic guidelines can get you jump-started.

  • Check your bank statements against the settlement records:
    • Identify the line item in your bank statement that contains the TX...XT description and the batch number.
    • Identify the corresponding settlement detail report
    • Verify that the deposit amount matches the amount indicated in the settlement detail report.
  • Using the settlement detail report line items, update each transaction in your system with the appropriate status, as indicated in the report. For example: settled, refunded or chargeback.
  • Optional:
    • You can add a batch number field to your transaction table to look up which batch the transaction was paid out.
    • You can store the settled amount, so you can keep track of the costs per transaction.

A fully automated system leaves no room for errors, and it contributes to making your bookkeeping system correct, as far as Adyen transactions are concerned.
