The Transactions report shows all of your venue's completed transactions for a selected date range.
What is this report used for?
The purpose of using this report is to see how much money has been taken across all of the different areas of the ROLLER platform and when the transaction occurs, with the ability to apply filters on a range of variables.
How does it work?
- This report purely shows the transaction records. There is no product information because the booking items can be edited at a later time but the amount paid can't
- The search bar enables you to search for a particular booking name
- Booking fees are excluded from the display however this can be shown if you export the report
- The top bar summarises the funds received and gift cards redeemed over the selected time period
- Funds Received is the amount paid in the transaction, including fees and discounts. Negative values (refunds) will be bracketed. This is should mirror Transaction Total apart from the way it records gift card transactions. See FAQs
- Gift Cards Redeemed is the value of gift cards redeemed over time
What data can you see?
You can filter the report by transaction location, device name, payment type, booking status, and transaction type.

- POS refers to transactions made via ROLLER Point of Sale at the venue
- Venue Management refers to transactions processed by staff members in the ROLLER Venue Manager
- Device Name is the name of the POS device used to process the transaction (if applicable). This enables you to see transactions processed on individual POS devices.

- Eftpos is all Eftpos transactions processed in POS and any transaction marked as paid by Eftpos in Venue Management/Admin

- Partially Paid means there is still an amount owing on the bookings which the transactions are against
- Fully Paid means that the booking is all paid up and that there is no balance outstanding
- Cancelled is for bookings which you have marked as cancelled
- Transaction Type is the type of transaction which is split between Payment and Refund:
- All shows both payment (i.e. money coming in) and refunds
- Payment is money coming in from your customers
- Refunds are all the refunds made in POS only

How is this report activated?
This is report automatically included in your platform. Please contact ROLLER Support if this report is not made available to you.
- How are refunds treated in this report?
- Refunds done via the POS will be listed as a transaction with a negative value, shown in brackets in the 'Total' column, eg. ($50). They will go as a negative against the total sum of your transactions, so if you have two transactions, one for $50 and one for refunded ($50), the total sum of Funds Received will be $0. Refunds done via your online payment gateway will not be listed in the ROLLER reports, and therefore you will need to manually reconcile the value of these.
- What is the difference between Funds Received and Transaction Total?
- The main difference between the two is when a gift card is used to pay for a transaction. If a transaction is paid using a gift card, it will have a $0 funds received (as no new money is coming in) but it will have a positive transaction total.
- A guest got in touch with Super Jump Trampoline park to see if a booking he made online went through. He also couldn’t remember if he booked it under his name or his son’s name. Super Jump’s manager can use the Transactions Report to find the transaction by filtering the report to a particular date and finding the transaction based on the time and amount. Super Jump can also see the booking ID and booking name associated to the transaction, and send the email confirmation to the guest
- A venue needs to be able to get a breakdown of the above figures line by line so that they can see how many people are in each session of the day (i.e. 10 am session 60 people, 11am session 65 people, etc) and how much was spent in the café in each session. To know how much has been spent in the cafe for each session, the venue would've use both the bookings and the transactions report and then do a vlookup in excel to combine the transactions times.
