Settlement Report

Overview

Settlement Reports are provided by Alipay+ to the Acquiring Partner (ACQP) for settlement purposes. This report is generated according to the period agreed in the contract. The Settlement Report is uploaded to a specific directory on the SFTP server. The ACQP can download and use it for reconciliation.

Alipay+ needs to pay the ACQP the amount stated in the Settlement Report from the clearing bank by fund payment before the date specified by valueDate.

File location and naming convention

The Settlement Report file is a UTF-8 encoded text file. By default, this file is saved in the directory /v1/settlements/settlement/<participantId>/<date>, and the default file name is settlement_<participantId>_<settlementCurrency>_<settlementBatchId>_<participantAgreementId>_<seq>.csv, where:

  • participantId: the unique ID that Alipay+ issues to the ACQP. This field identifies the receiver of the file.
  • date: the date when the report is generated, not the date of the transactions. For example, a report with a date of 20220319 is generated on 20220319.
  • settlementCurrency: the currency that is used in settlement, as agreed in the contract. This is the same as one that is stated in the Fee Report.
  • settlementBatchId: the settlement batch ID.
  • participantAgreementId: is the unique ID that is assigned by Alipay+ to identify a settlement agreement between Alipay+ and the ACQP. The value of the participantAgreementId parameter is determined by the value of the participantId parameter and the settlement currency used by the ACQP (and separately allocated for AlipayCN). The ID represents the fund flow when Alipay+ performs settlement to the ACQP.
  • seq: the sequence number used as a file index. The field is used when multiple files exist in the clearing cycle. The file index is ordered in the range of 000-999.

Report structure

The Settlement Report consists of two parts:

  • Summary section, which displays the settlement information.
  • Details section, which lists the clearing cycles that are related to this settlement.

Each Settlement Report only contains one set of settlement information, but the settlement information might include information from multiple clearing cycles. When no amount is to be settled, or the amount to be settled is less than the settlement amount threshold as agreed in the contract, a Settlement Report is generated with an amount of 0. The transaction amount and currency are empty. The Settlement Report is only generated on the settlement date. In addition, if the settlement date is a holiday, no report will be generated, and neither will the directory.
