Credit Card Activity Report

You'll find the credit card activity report in the Reports menu in the control panel.

You'll now see a reporting view that shows any credit card transactions that might have been placed during the current month.  You can change the date range to see what the credit card activity is like for different periods of time.

The resulting report will be grouped by card types, like you see below.  Mastercard is in one grouping, with Visa in another.  If there were more card types, you'd see additional groupings.  The report header will tell you how many transactions are being shown, and it ends by letting you know what the total amount was that customer paid using a credit card.

Each grouping will have a sum total spent shown at the bottom of it's segmentation.  The rest of the columns will be the same for each grouping.

Column Description
Time This column will have the date/time stamp for when the transaction occurred.
Order # You'll see the order number for the transaction in this column. This will allow you to look the order up, if you feel you need to.
Transaction # The transaction number is not the number given to you by your payment gateway, but rather the Hotcakes ID number assigned to it when the transaction was created.
Card # Here you can get an idea of what card was used, as you'll see a listing of obscured card numbers, showing only the last 4 digits.
Amount This column will contain the total amount that was charged to the card in the transaction.  If there were multiple transactions for the order, this value may not match the order grand total.
