What is CPP - MOTO GUI Level 2

The Corporate Purchasing Point Mail Order Telephone Order Graphical User Interface Level 2 system (or CPP — MOTO GUI for short) performs the same transaction processing functions as a physical credit card terminal but is accessed over the Internet.

To ensure you receive payment for your transaction, three steps need to be completed:

  3. Settle the batch which contains the transaction.
Unless all three processes are completed, payment will not be processed.
