OrangeCRM Batch Jobs are operations that are scheduled to run behind the scenes to accomplish a multitude of functions in an automated fashion.

Among the various types of Batch Jobs are Merchant Bank jobs, which batch together all qualifying transactions and sends them to the selected Gateway for processing. Merchants with a high number of banks and/or transactions may find that their batch jobs are taking too long to process.

A simple way to minimize transaction processing times is to schedule Merchant Bank jobs to run at night, when other CRM activity is very low. Additionally, you can free up your job queues during that time frame by using the Blackout Time feature to temporarily suspend any Batch Jobs that run frequently throughout the day, such as every hour or more often.

Blackout Time settings can be configured within the Advanced Scheduling tab of a Batch Job.
