Learn more about using the dashboard to better manage your FedaPay account.
The dashboard is a feature-rich user interface which allows you to use and set up your FedaPay account. You can use it to manage payments and refunds, respond to disputes, monitor your integration and more.
The dashboard homepage provides useful information about your account activity. This includes a wide range of real-time analytics and graphs that give insight on your business performance and recent activities that may require you to take action, such as unanswered conflict or identity verification.
Explore the dashboard
The dashboard is mainly organized in separate sections. Each section represents a particular area of the API (example: Transactions) or a feature provided by FedaPay.
In most cases, you can use the dashboard to perform specific actions such as refunding a payment made by a customer or payment request for the funds available on your balance. And all of this without using the API thus making the dashboard an useful tool for managing your business.
