Cybersource Reconciliation Issues

    Hi all - we are having trouble reconciling the current reporting available in Cvent, what monies are passed over to Cybersource, and the data that is passed with the transactions. The names, dates, etc do not always match (ex. Registrant A actually group registered but used a CC with Registrant B's info... there's a mix of what is passed). Has anyone else come across this issue? Or have any documentation or tips? Other than going one-by-one (a headache when we have 2000+ registrations!).  Thank you!!

    Have you tried pulled the credit/debit report and adding some fields that will help you determine the person?

    Are your time zones the same?
    We use PayFlowPro and offset the hours by 3 to match cvent reporting.

    We have free events, so I don't have current experience, but in a past job I know that it was very common for our attendees to pay with someone else's credit card... so perhaps that information is correct?

    We have not had that issue. When we used PayFlowPro our account manager made sure everything reconciled prior to ever running a report on our own.

    Following! Is there a way to restrict payment email addresses to allowed email domains to try to cut down on some of the confusion? At least know what organization/company a payment came from?

    Hi Janie,

    If you use Cybersource, they should pass back into Cvent a unique identifier called a Transaction Reference Number or Reconciliation ID (in Cvent, it's called "Transaction ID"). This identifier is on their own reports and also in Cvent's Admin level transaction reports (I use Standard Reports (Classic) > Online Transactions). I would pivot on this field - Cybersource will show whose card was used, and Cvent will show what event it was used for and whose registration it covered.
