Onboarding Rabobank to use Direct Communication
To integrate with Rabobank, Payment Management offers three different options: manual communication, direct communication through Bizcuit and direct integration through their API. This article describes how to set up direct communication for Rabobank using direct integration.
To set up direct communication with Rabobank you require one of the following user accounts:
- Owner (Eigenaar)
- AdministratorPlus (BeheerderPlus)
You must authorize the user account to share account permissions with a third party. For more information, go to rabobank.nl.
To set up direct communication with Rabobank
To integrate with Rabobank directly, go through the steps of the assisted Assisted Setup guide Set up Bank Account in Payment Management.
In Business Central, select the icon , enter Bank Account Setup, and select the related link.
Select Next to start the assisted setup.
On the Bank System field, select Rabobank, and select OK.
Select Next to continue.
Select Connect to Rabobank. You are now directed to the login page of your bank.
Log in to your bank, select one or multiple accounts, and select Confirm. A token is sent to Business Central. Continia uses this token to start the communication with your bank account.
Select Next. Now you can download account statements, making payments possible through direct communication from Business Central with the bank.
Preparing your Rabobank Account for Direct Debit
A direct debit is an instruction from a customer to their bank that allows a third-party to receive money from their account. This works only if the bank has been given advance notice of the amounts and dates of collection. For you to work with Payment Management and Rabobank on direct debit transactions, you require the authorization to do so.
Authorization on user level
To work with Payment Management and Rabobank on direct debit transactions, you require certain user permissions.
To set user permissions on Rabobank:
On Rabobank, go to Overzicht (Overview) > Gebruikersauthorisaties (User authorizations) > Overzicht Gebruikers (Users overview) > Gebruiker (User) > Algemeen (General).
Navigate to Betalen (Payment), and enable Importeren betaal en incassobestanden (Import of payment and direct debit files).
Navigate to Inzage, and enable Gegevens van passen en rekeningen inzien (Access to cards and accounts).
Once set, it is important to keep the authorizations to prevent 404 errors to display.
Authorizations on user level per bank account
For every Rabobank bank account you want to use for Direct Debit transactions, you must have permissions.
To set user permissions on the bank account:
Go to Overzicht (Overview) > Gebruikersauthorisaties (User authorizations) > Overzicht Gebruikers (Users overview) > Gebruiker (User) > Per rekening (Per account), and select a bank account.
Enable the following:
Section To enable Inzage (View Business Account) Saldo inzien (View balance)
