We believe you should have total control of your data. That’s why Braintree’s API gives you the flexibility to generate your own custom reports, allowing you to focus on what’s important to your business without being subject to the limits of our standard reports. You can start setting up your own reporting as soon as you’ve integrated with Braintree.
This script is a sample of one of many ways that you can generate your own custom reports via the API by:
- Using the Braintree API to search for all transactions with a particular
- Iterating over those results and pulling specific transaction values
- Adding those details for each transaction to a new row of the output CSV
- Enter your own API keys
- Use the header row fields to define which values you want in the report
