You can access the Worldpay Online Reporting system to run and review many reports regarding your processing activity, as well as access the Chargeback Manager system. You can also download your most recent and previous monthly statements that you can use for reconciliation purposes.
Through the Worldpay Online Reporting system, you should run daily/monthly activity reports, including downloading your Monthly Processing Statement, that can be used to compare to the daily settlements from your credit card terminals and online gateways in order to reconcile with deposits in your cost center within SAP. Each settlement batch total should coincide to a deposit of an equal amount within your cost center. Individual transactions will not be posted to your cost center, as they are in a lump sum within the daily settlement batch for each TID.

Please contact Treasury Services at 859-257-3969 if you would like more information regarding cellular credit card terminals.
