Transaction Date Versus Process Date

The Transaction date is the date the transaction occurred. Advertisers report this date to Rakuten Advertising. Depending on how an advertiser’s system is set up, the transaction date can be one of the following:

  • The date the consumer confirmed the purchase online.
  • When the credit card was authorized.
  • When the order shipped.
  • When the application was approved.

The Process date is the date Rakuten Advertising receives and processes an advertiser's transaction file. A transaction file may contain transactions from the day it was submitted or from two months earlier.
