How Do I Record Credit Card Settlements?

Although credit/debit card transactions must be recorded in myUFL (see myUFL Toolkit), physical delivery to Treasury Management’s Cashiers area is not required for the deposit’s paperwork.

Some Important Points to Remember About Credit Card Deposits

  • Credit/debit card transactions must be settled daily before 9pm. This process is also called ‘batching out,’ and results in the funding of the UF bank account.
  • The daily settlement must be recorded in myUFL by means of a departmental deposit by the following day – regardless of the amount. Treasury Management is budget checking deposits daily.
  • Visa, MasterCard, and Discover settlements must be combined into one PeopleSoft deposit amount per terminal.
  • American Express deposits must be made separately from Visa & Master Card settlements (still one deposit for each terminal that processes an AmEx card).
  • Keep a copy of the Deposit Transmittal as well as a copy of the settlement tape on file.

When Entering the PeopleSoft Deposit ‘Payment ID’

Use your three-digit location code followed by:

  • VI – for Visa/MasterCard/Discover
  • AX – for American Express settlements


Merchant Name Location Code
Payment ID on PeopleSoft deposits
For VI/MC/DI settlements: 018VI
For Amex settlements: 018AX
