With your saved file in the correct template this can be uploaded to the system. Either drag and drop your file, or upload it by selecting it from the saved location.
5. Review errors
The system will identify any rows with errors.
You can select the row to find out the reason for the error:
You can still submit a file that contains errors, but only those rows that are error free will be processed.
If you are re-submitting a file you do not need to re-submit any transactions that were successful on first attempt, this will duplicate the transaction.
To submit the file simply select Submit.
6. Cards distributed
Upon submission your file will be processed. All error free rows will create a virtual card, and send a PCI secure link to the relevant email address provided in the upload file. This email will allow the supplier to access the details of the virtual card through a secure link.
You will see the status of the successful transactions as sent.
You will be able to download a receipt of the import, this will show the successful and unsuccessful transactions, and the transaction ID.
The cards will have been created with the metadata provided in the file, and just as other cards you will be able to see this information on reports to make reconciliation easy.
