What is a “processed” transaction?

This refers to a transaction that you have sent to us to be processed. On receipt, we will send the transaction onto the relevant card scheme that will further process and approve the transaction for settlement. It is sometimes at this point when a transaction may be rejected by the card scheme however this is uncommon.
