Effectively manage your clients

Fri, 30 May 2014

With some of our businesses having over 10,000 clients on record, it is important to manage clients properly.

Proper Configuration

Under Settings -> Interface, you should set Client Selection to "Search by Typing" which will show a search box everywhere you need to select a client. Once you reach around 150 clients, it becomes more efficient than displaying all clients in a dropdown select box. You can type any part of the clients' name, email address, or id, to have matching clients displayed instantly.

Collecting money by debit order can't be easier

Fri, 16 May 2014

We provide you with multiple methods to collect money via debit order from your clients. We understand that not every business operates the same, and thus we've provided methods that should comply with your needs.

With all debit orders, we automatically process payments a couple of days after the batch has run. You have options to specify how we should handle bounced transactions.

Automatic Debit Orders

The recommended method of collecting money via debit order. You specify clients which should be processed via this method from the Payments -> Automatic Debit Orders page, set a couple of options, such as the Action Date, and an optional bounce fee. Our system will then automatically generate a debit batch 3 Action Dates prior to your specified Action Date, so that you can be sure that your money is collected from your clients on your chosen day. All that is required from you is that you authorise the batch at your payment gateway. We will notify you via email as soon as the batch is ready.
