        • Settlement for single wallet: settlementItems_<pspName>_<settlementCurrency>_<settlementBatchId>_<seq>.csv.

        • customerId: the unique ID that is assigned by Alipay to identify a merchant
        • settlementDate: the settlement date
        • pspName: the name of the actual payment method provider. For wallets, the value is the wallet name as defined in PSPName.

        • settlementBatchId:the settlement batch code corresponds to the settlement batch number in the Summary Files.
