Generating transactions and payments does not charge credit card or process direct debits. It creates the gift batch from which these steps can be completed.

After generating the batch and reviewing its results, the next step is to Create an EFT Transmission File  to perform the actual processing. (NOTE: Commiting a batch does NOT charge credit cards or process direct debits.)

For more information on credit card / direct debit processing, please refer to How to process credit cards and direct debits in The Raiser's Edge.
