The all-new improved Payment Gateway Dashboard is a feature-rich user interface that helps you manage and monitor your account effectively. It gives you easy access to all the features, better categorisation and helps you manage payments, refunds, and settlements all in one place.
In the new dashboard design, we have enhanced the experience of some common workflows like tracking payments, issuing refunds, managing settlements, and more to make managing business easier for you. The new dashboard will help you with detailed analytics about your day-to-day business and enables you to make better and informed decisions for your business.
We have increased the visibility of useful information and made it easily available for you as per your need. You will see the complete transaction timeline for each payment received, that is, from the time the order was raised to the time it is complete. Details of any refunds that were processed against a particular payment are also visible within the payment screen. Also, the payment methods enabled for your account and other available payment methods are easily visible.
Some tasks in the old dashboard required multiple steps to be done to complete a particular task. We have enhanced all such experiences in the new design. For example, you can initiate refunds from within the payments screen itself. We have focused on common workflows to make them faster and easier for you.
The search and filter functionality is enhanced, and you can search for a particular transaction or a type of transaction seamlessly.
