Reconciliation

SFTP File Transfer

SFTP file transfer for our reconciliation reports is available to merchants on request.

To set up file push to a merchant server Link Money will provide the merchant with a public key for SFTP key-pair authentication and will need the following information to be shared:

  • Path to server
  • Host name
  • Base directories of where the reports should be stored
  • Desired configurations for delivery

If a merchant requests to instead use a Link Money-provided SFTP server, they will need to generate a key pair and then provide Link Money with the following information:

  • Public Key
  • IP addresses that will be used to connect to SFTP server
  • Desired configurations for delivery to Link Money-provided server

Once a merchant has been setup for SFTP file transfer they will receive the following .CSV files to their server or be able to pull from the Link Money-provided server at the frequency and times requested.
