As part of the GrowthZone Pay service, GrowthZone is committed to taking reasonable “Know Your Customer” steps to assure that customers applying for a payment gateway account are legitimate and not impersonating as an association or chamber for unlawful or harmful purposes. As part of our validation process, once a payment gateway application is submitted, the account requires an additional verification step by GrowthZone. While this verification due diligence is completed, the payment gateway is not yet fully available for processing. Once GrowthZone has completed the verification, the gateway is enabled and transactions can be processed.

GrowthZone Pay Disputes


Disputes are an unfortunate part of accepting payments online, but they are not typically common. Disputes and the reasons for them (e.g., fraud) are ultimately your responsibility so you must take the appropriate actions to prevent and respond to disputes.

When a dispute is filed for a credit card charge, a notification is sent to the email listed in Credit Card Account/Dispute Notifications Email under the Payment Gateway settings. Within the email is a link that allows for answering the dispute. There is a dispute resolution process through which you can respond and submit evidence to make the case that the payment was valid. If the dispute is found in your favor, the disputed amount and fee is returned back to you. If a dispute is upheld, the card issuer’s decision is final and the cardholder’s payment remains refunded. NOTE: There is a specific Respond by Date, if a response is not received by this date the dispute is automatically lost.

The GrowthZone Pay Disputes report will provide further information of disputes, and also provide the opportunity to submit further documentation.

  1. Select Billing in the left-hand navigation panel.
  2. On the Overview tab, click GrowthZone Pay Disputes in the Reports section. A list of disputed transactions will be displayed.

Reconciling your Accounting Records in GrowthZone


The reconciliation of accounts receivable is the process of matching the detailed amounts of unpaid customer billings to the accounts receivables. GrowthZone provides a variety of reports to assist you in this reconciliation. You may choose to reconcile as frequently as your business processes dictate.

In it's simplest form to reconcile:

(A/R Previous Month End) + (Sales Current Month) - (Deposits) = Ending Balance

The Ending Balance should be equal to the current Accounts Receivable. Use the following reports to find the data needed to perform the calculation:

A/R Previous Month End

You can find the A/R Previous Month End by generating the Accounts Receivable (Detail) Report on the Billing Overview tab. Generate the report for the last day or the month/year for which you wish to reconcile.

AR Detail.jpg

A/R Previous Month End = $850.00

Sales Current Month

The Sales by Account Report will provide the Sales Current Month value. Generate the report for the first day through the last day of the current month. In the example below, the report is generated for Dec 1 - Dec 31.

Sales by Account1.jpg

Sales Current Month = $500.00

Deposits

Deposits are calculated by generating the Deposit Summary for the current month less Undeposited Fund + Undeposited Funds from the previous month.
