The batch import mechanism is best used when processing multiple transactions daily.

Steps for importing transactions

  1. Download the import template via the following (or click on the file attached at the end of this article): https://anedot.com/donations/import/donation-batch-upload-template.csv.
  2. Fill out the template via the instructions below.
  3. Upload the csv file (import template) by doing the following:
  • Click on 'Transactions' in the Navigation.
  • Click the Import Donations button in the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select "Choose File" and navigate to the template.

Once you've imported the template, you'll receive an email detailing any issues that were encountered during the import. If there are any errors, the entire file will be rejected. Once all errors have been corrected, the import will work and transactions will be authorized and collected.
