Obtaining reconciliation files
You can obtain the reconciliation files from SFTP server and Alipay global site. However, the files obtained through different channels vary in file names and file contents, which is further explained in Reconciliation file content.
To obtain your reconciliation files through SFTP, complete the following steps:
- Contact Alipay to get your public IP address added to white list. Contact Global Merchant Technical Support (email@example.com) to submit your PID and public IP address with which you visit the SFTP server. If you are using sandbox environment, submit your test PID and public IP address.
- After receiving your request in step 1, Alipay will send you the SFTP login credentials within 3 working days.

- Port: 22
- Host name: sftp.alipay.com
- Username and password
- SFTP accounts that are not used for 90 days are closed.
- Files older than 7 days on the SFTP server might be removed. It is suggested to download the files within 3 days. If the file you need is deleted, contact Global Technical Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help.
