Accounts Receivable

Account Receivable

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

 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 "Order ID" 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 Four 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.

Or different stages if a customer needs to be called back or emailed.

After right clicking on the column for the order in question a select popup will be displayed. This will allow you to assign a new tag to an order, change the tag on an order or remove the tag altogether.

If we click on the tag name we will be taken back to the Accounts Receivable screen where it has been assigned to the order and the display has been updated.

There is currently no limit to the number of tags you can create, however you can only create 10 tags at a time. You will need to save your changes and come back to add more tags.
