Merchant dashboard

The April merchant dashboard is an easy way to manage all your transactions, providing an always accessible control centre for payments, transfers and refunds. You can also create orders quickly and allow your customers to make purchases face to face or over the phone easily using the Virtual Terminal function.

The merchant dashboard can be accessed via your web browser using your unique URL issued by April.



This tab shows new customers and transaction frequency over time. It can be displayed in larger or smaller periods (day, week, month, year) and the specific period can be adjusted at the top right of the screen.


An overview of recent orders and their status. The period displayed can again be adjusted at the top right of the screen, and a specific order can be searched for using either the order ID, customer email or the purchase amount with the search function.

The displayed orders are typically ordered by recency, however they can also be filtered by payment status and type (full or instalments payment) using the drop down menus. There is also the option to export the data displayed as a CSV file download.

Clicking on an order ID will open a new page with the full order details and the option to refund the payment. Both of these actions can also be executed by clicking on the three vertical dot (kebab) icon to the right of each order.
