How to Tell if Your Residual Income Reporting is Accurate

Residual income

One of the most important aspects of doing business to an ISO is residual income reporting. Without accurate payments, ISOs do not have the discretionary income to budget and plan their business well. As a result, they can not scale and grow efficiently.

Residual Income reporting must be clear with limited surprises and tune ups.

For all parties involved, residual payments need to be accurate, clearly defined and all while being calculated and paid quickly.

Providing accurate residual income reporting calculations are the key to a good working relationship between reps, processor, and the ISO owner. Great ISOs understand this and utilize CRM software designed to track and calculate residual payments internally in order to ensure quality control between the ISO and the agent.


The Benefits of Accurate Residual Income Reporting


Payments and reporting are inseparable parts of a business relationship.

  • Residual Income reporting gives agents and ISOs the ability to review payments and to discuss residuals in the present and future. Poor reporting causes confusion and delay. This affects the agents quality of life and therefore causes resentment and churn.
  • Concise and clear reporting defines the relationships between working parties. Therefore, there are no questions about where the money has gone.
  • Pay reps on time and accurately
