Schedule a credit card charge/payment of AR balance monthly
Is there a way to create a schedule that will create a payment for the open balance on an AR account?
The payment should apply all open invoices on the account and capture the credit card payment as well. We are using the Ebiz integration, but it should be similar to using the built in Auth.net plugin.
This is a late reply and you may have already resolved this but I wanted to provide some information.
You should be able to generate payments using the Recurring Transactions under Accounts Receivables and using the Generate Payments and Capture Payments options under the Banking-> Credit Card Processing section. You can setup schedules to automate this. I cannot speak to how the EBiz integration works specifically, however.
2019 R2 will have a cool feature to auto apply a payment to all open invoices for a customer. We will have to see if it's possible to automate this.
@chris Are you referring to AR203500? I do not see an option for configuring a schedule to pay the total open AR amount ( whatever it may be each month). I Actually do not see an option for payments at all.
What am I missing?
After looking at this further, I would take a look at if you can use Generate Payments (AR.51.10.00) and Capture Payments (AR.51.15.00) together. Recurring Transactions doesn't appear to have the functionality you need.
You would create two schedules that generate payments for all open invoices for a customer, and then a subsequent schedule to capture the payments. This will generate a payment document for an invoice and use the payment method selected on the invoice when capturing.
Its been sometime, but i finally got to implementing this and it worked.
