Defining the Payment ID mask
A payment ID serves as a distinct identifier for customer payments. It allows you to associate a payment transaction with a specific sales invoice in your system. For Payment Management to correctly interpret the payment ID information, you need to establish a payment ID mask.
If you are unsure about the length of the payment ID, you can import a FIK customer payment and count the characters in the payment reference to determine the appropriate length.
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
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.
