Reporting

Reporting Requirements

Elavon requires merchant systems to provide terminal parameters and CAPK reports when requested.

Reporting Best Practices

  • If the merchant system supports PIN bypass then Elavon recommends to report corresponding information in the EMV statistic report for PIN entry errors and exceptions.

  • Elavon recommends merchant system to generate terminal configuration report from the point of sale.

  • Elavon recommends POS entry mode data to be extracted in the reports generated by the merchant.

The following reports are optional and may be required by Elavon upon request:

EMV Statistic Report:

The EMV Statistic report provides details on the number of chip transactions executed at the point of sale, number of chip read failures, pin entry errors, offline declines and technical fallbacks since the last batch close. The results should refresh with a successful settlement at the host. These details are important for Elavon in case of disputes, chargebacks, and any investigation purposes. Below are the details to be included in the report:

  • Number of chip card read failures

  • Number of PIN entry errors

  • Number of offline funds declined

  • Number of technical fallbacks

Chip Transaction Report

The Chip transaction report provides details on the number of chip transactions executed at the point of sale. This information is required by Elavon for analysis and investigation purposes.

POS Entry Mode Report

Point of Sale Entry mode is an important factor to know in order to determine the transaction conditions with chip and non-chip transactions. Elavon requires merchants to provide this information when requested.

EMV Offline Declined Transaction Report

From an operational perspective, Elavon requires a report on the EMV offline declined transactions at the point of sale. The terminal application parameters and the data from the last offline declined transaction must be available on request. This may include DE 55 (a block containing multiple EMV tags in TLV format), Terminal and Issuer Action Codes, truncated PAN as printed on the receipt, and Application PAN Sequence Number, if present.

Merchants shall report this in the below format.

EMV Key Load Report

The EMV Key load report provides information on updates that were made by merchants and third party processors and the keys loaded on the point of sale devices. The merchants must be able to provide this report if requested by Elavon. The format of this report is mentioned below.

EMV Key Load Report Header
Date Date of last successful key load
Time Time of last successful key load
TID Terminal Identification – unique terminal identifier
MID Merchant Identification – unique merchant identifier
Title EMV Public Key Load Report
EMV Key Load Report Repeated Fields Per Key (this will be repeated 6 times for 6 different EMV public keys as per card associations)
RID First 10 characters of the AID, Application Identifier (EMV Tag 9F06). Format is either ASCII or hex, confirm with your TPP interface guide.
Key Index Identifies the Certificate Authority’s Public Key in conjunction with the RID (EMV Tag 9F22). Format is either ASCII or hex, confirm with your TPP interface guide.
