There are several Sections within the E-Payments Form - Each Section may change somewhat depending on the Method of Payment that is being processed and from where the The E-Payments Form ways chosen:

Defining your Company's Batch Numbers:

Micro Key is now recommending a new way to Assign Batch Numbers on the Receipts, E-Payments, Receipt Posting, and Post Auto Drafts Forms

This recommendation will better identify When (what day and month) the Receipt was entered, and will also identify what Type of Receipt was posted (e.g,, Check or Cash, Electronic Funds Transfer i..e., a Bank Draft], the American Express Credit Card, All other Debit & Credit Cards) which will make Bank Deposits and Bank Reconciliation processes much easier.

 

When manually entering a Batch Number, follow this process:

a)Enter the (one digit) number for the Payment Type of the Receipt being posted (one digit from 1 - 9 based on your Company's adopted Batch Number Assignment method)

b)Append the two-digit Month Number and two-digit Day Number

 

You can predefine 3 Batch Number Prefixes (for AMEX, Other Credit & Debit Cards, and Bank Drafts) in Company Settings.

1)AmCCBatchNumber - This is a number field representing AMEX payment transactions which may be set as 1 to 9, but is initially set to 6.

2)AllCCBatchNumber - This is a number field representing Other Credit and Debit Card payment transactions which may be set as 1 to 9, but is initially set to 7.

3)CheckNumberBatch - This is a number field representing Bank Draft payment transactions which may be set as 1 to 9, but is initially set to 8.

4)If these Company Settings are not defined, only the two-digit Month Number and two-digit Day Number combination will be inserted on the E-Payments Form.

 

If your Company is using any of the Automatic Payment Gateways (such as InnoEPay), this Batch Number configuration will be inserted in the E-Payments Form (and while Posting Auto Drafts) automatically.

You can predefine 3 Batch Number Prefixes (for AMEX, Other Credit & Debit Cards, and for Bank Drafts) in Company Settings.

1)AmCCBatchNumber - This represents an AMEX payment transaction and must be a single number which is initially set to 6.

2)AllCCBatchNumber - This represents any other Credit or Debit Card payment transaction and must be a single number which is initially set to 7.

3)CheckNumberBatch - This represents a Bank Draft payment transaction and must be a single number which is initially set to 8.
