Accounts Receivable

Account Receivable

The Accounts Receivable section allows you to review and manage orders that have not completed the payment process.

Basically, it allows you to quickly process all outstanding orders. You can select orders individually or in batches. For individual order, simply click on the hyperlinked orderID to view the full invoice details for that order. To processing the payment scroll down to the payment section that appears below the invoice. If you have multiple orders that need processing, you can use the check boxes along the left side of the A/R order list to select multiple credit card payment type orders and then process them for payment. Other payment types that are not processed against your configured credit card payment gateway should be processed individually.

You should notice right away that there are payment methods on the right hand side. Currently they are rendered in Alphabetical Order by Payment Method. These will be different depending on what payment methods you have configured in your account and on what payment methods your customers used when placing the order.

Also notice at the bottom of your page are three boxes in different colors. Orders are cross-checked as they come into Accounts Receivable and then highlighted accordingly. You can then easily move large numbers of orders instead of having to research each one. For instance, you can quickly select and "reject" all the orders that are highlighted as Test Order to clean up the spreadsheet. 

View Order Details

You can view the details and process a single order simply by clicking (once) on the appropriate order id.

Record Grouping

Record Grouping

In the "configure report" page (accessible by clicking the "configure report" button) you are able to configure the report with "order grouping".

IF configured with order grouping, you'll see a red message stating:

To revert back to the normal ordering by orderID, click the "Configure report" button then choose none in the "record Grouping" drop-down list. Then save changes.
