Force Close

Either the POS will send an API-based batch close message to Fusebox, or the user will log in to the user interface to close a batch.

Fusebox automatically creates a batch with all financial transactions sent from the POS and will accrue them into batches by Site ID. If a batch remains open for 7 days, it will automatically close in Fusebox.

To settle from the Elavon Gateway User Interface, login to the User Interface and ensure the amounts about to be settled have been reconciled in the previous steps.

  • Test: https://gatewaydemo.elavon.net/ui/portal.html
  • Production: https://fusebox.elavon.net/ui/portal.html

Ensure the user has proper access rights and permissions to log in to process a settlement.
