Sunsetting SettledBulk and RefundedBulk journals

Adyen is sunsetting the payment journals SettledBulk and RefundedBulk in your Customer Area, and in a number of reports. To minimize disruption to your own systems and processes, carefully review the changes outlined below.

Changes to financial reports

The change to the payments lifecycle will impact a number of downloadable financial reports. Please carefully review any technical integration/data ingestion as well as your financial close process. The following reports are impacted:

1. Payments accounting report

In the payments accounting report, we are applying the following changes:

  • We have renamed the SettledBulk and RefundedBulk records to SentForSettle and SentForRefund. These records occur when a capture or refund request is sent to the scheme. Any net amounts (Payable, Commission, Markup, Scheme Fees and Interchange) are provided for information only for you to predict of net cashflow, i.e. there is no money movement.
  • We added new Settled and Refunded records to the report. They identify when Adyen credits or debits funds into your settlement batch, plus any billable acquiring costs withheld. 
    Note: This event may occur on a later date than the capture.

Note: Any report generated after the new version is enabled (either on request, or on May 24 2019) will be in the new format. In the first report(s), you may see Settled and Refunded records. These are financial bookings in the settlement batch for previously reported SettledBulk or RefundedBulk records.

In addition, we will start reporting any applicable Authorisation scheme fee for the journal types CancelledExpiredRefused and Retried. These are charged on your monthly Adyen invoice only, and are not debited from the settlement batches.

2. Interactive payments accounting report:

We are implementing the same split into separate journal as described above for the payments accounting report.

3. Daily and Monthly Finance report:

We are simplifying the layout of the Payment balance sheet in the Monthly Finance report, removing the separate entries for the following statuses: SettledBulk, RefundedBulk, BulkSettlement, BulkSettlement.SettledBulk, BulkSettlement.RefundedBulk. In addition, we are removing the BulkSettlement sheet.

4. The Settlement detail and Aggregate settlement reports

These reports are not impacted by this change as the new journals were already mapped to Settled and Refunded respectively.

Changes to Customer Area

In addition to the changes in the downloadable reports, we will align the displayed and selectable statuses in the payments list and payments detail page to reflect the new status logic.

Other changes

No other areas of the Adyen platform are impacted by this. There are no changes required with regards to payment processing (API, Checkout, POS) or webhooks / notifications.
