Settlement Reporting

Learn about Bread's Settlement Report and how to reconcile your Bread deposits.


What is the settlement report?
The Settlement Report provides a detailed csv of funding activity occurring on settled and refunded transactions for a selected time period.

Typically, all settled transactions are funded by Bread on a daily basis. After transactions are settled, funds are expected to appear in your account within 0-2 business days via ACH.

Downloading the Settlement Report

The report can be accessed under the "Reporting" dropdown in the Bread Merchant Portal. After clicking "Download CSV Report", you can download a list of transactions within a 100 day date range.
