Gateway Kinds

This Help File Page was last Modified on 01/29/2020

As installed, MKMS will have dozens of Payment Gateways defined, but no Company will use all or even more than a few of those pre-defined Payment Gateways.

The Gateway Kinds Form is used to identify those that will be used (i.e., are Active) , and those that will not (i.e., are Inactive).

This is done to "hide" those Inactive Payment Gateways from Drop-Down Selection Lists to restrict a Users choices and thereby prevent the selection of an Inactive Payment Gateway.


To identify which Payment Gateways are Active and which are not, open the Gateway Kinds Form as follows:

a)From the Backstage Menu System Select Maintenance and Choose General and Click the General Maintenance option which displays the Maintenance Menu, or

b)From the Quick Access Menu, Select Maintenance and Choose General Maintenance to display the Maintenance Menu.


Once the Maintenance Menu is displayed, Select Receivables and Choose Gateway Kinds.
