Statements give you an overview of your payouts, as well as a more detailed rundown of your business activity, including processed amounts, refunds, chargebacks, fees and rolling reserves.
Learn more about each section of your statement below.
Dates and times in statements, including the period each statement covers, are given in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
The header appears on the top part of each page of every statement. The example below is from page one, but subsequent pages follow a similar, slightly lighter, format.

This table shows a list of sales data during the statement period, arranged by the original payment method and the processing currency.
This table shows refunded payment data during the statement period. Please note, refunds could be related to processed amounts from a previous period. The items are ordered by the original processing currency and payout currency.
You can see how many refunds were processed with a certain payment method in a particular processing currency, and the total amount in the payout currency for each of the categories.
The total refunded amount is deducted from the total processed amount.
This table shows chargeback payments that occurred during the statement period. Please note, chargebacks could be related to processed amounts from a previous period. The items are ordered by the original processing currency and payout currency.
You can see how many chargebacks were processed with a certain payment method in a particular processing currency, and the total amount in the payout currency for each of the categories.
The total chargeback amount is deducted from the total processed amount.
In this section, you can read detailed information about the fees charged for transactions during the statement period. The fees are ordered by the original payment method in the payout currency.
To make things easier, we break the fees down into the following sections:
Card acquiring & APM fees: all fees associated with card acquiring, schemes, other networks, and alternative payment methods.
Chargeback related fees: including both chargebacks and representment fees.
Payment gateway fees: all fees associated with the gateway, such as authorization and refund fees.
We then combine these three fees to give the total fees, which is deducted from the total processed amounts.
Some of our merchants have their businesses in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Since January 1, 2018, the UAE is applying a value-added tax (VAT) to all financial services. You can find your VAT invoice on a separate page for each business registered in the UAE.
The header of the VAT Invoice shows some additional information to that explained in the header.
Information added to the VAT invoice header:
Label 1: information specific to the relevant Checkout.com subsidiary in the UAE.
Label 2 - VAT number: the merchant’s business VAT Number.
An overview of the VAT amount to be charged for the invoice period. It's split into VAT amounts per payout; these are then calculated to display the total amount of VAT owed in the local subsidiary’s currency.
