Defining the Payment ID mask
A payment ID is a unique identifier for customer payments. When you receive a payment from a customer, the payment ID identifies the payment transaction for a sales invoice within your system. You must define a payment ID mask for Payment Management to interpret the information in the payment ID.
If you are uncertain about the length of the payment ID, you can import a FIK customer payment, and then count the characters in the payment reference.
To define a payment ID mask on bank accounts
You can define the payment ID mask directly on a bank account. If no payment ID mask is defined on the bank account, the default Payment ID mask specified on the Payment Management Setup page will be used when managing the imported customer payments.
To define a payment ID mask on a bank account:
- Use the icon and search for Bank Accounts, then select the related link.
- Open the bank account card for which you want to define a payment ID mask, and on that card, navigate to the Payment Receipt Import FastTab, and in the Payment ID Mask field, specify the mask. The mask can be generated using the following characters:
- C=Customer no.
- D=Document no.
- M=Modulus check digit
- T=Document type
To define a default payment ID mask
You can set up a default payment ID mask to catch all customer payments that don't have a mask defined for the bank account.
To define the default payment ID mask:
- Use the icon and search for Payment Management Setup, then select the related link. This opens the Payment Management Setup page.
- On the setup page, on the Payment Receipt Import FastTab, in the Default Payment ID Mask field, define the default mask which will be used to interpret the payments imported to the company bank accounts. The mask can be generated using the following characters: C=Customer no. D=Document no. M=Modulus check digit. T=Document type. X=Ignore.
