Payment types are the methods that an account can use to make payments. This guide will provide an example on how to add a 'Check' offline payment type in the LogiSense Billing application.
Offline payment types are used to record payments in the application, they do not trigger payment processing through a gateway when they are used to make a payment.
Payment types that go through a payment gateway are added automatically when the payment gateway is configured, you do not need to configure these online payment types. See the Payment Gateway Example for instructions on how to configure a gateway.
Payment types can be setup immediately, there are no prerequisite configuration steps
Log into the LogiSense Billing Application
Navigate to Setup / Users & Accounts / Owner / Configuration
Select the Payment Types option on the left
In the Edit Owner Configuration Payment Types section click the to the right of the Payment Types tab
On the Add Payment Type modal that loads give the payment type a Name, and enable the Active checkbox. Optionally you can assign a GL Code to the type and a Description
Click Add on the Add Payment Type modal and the payment type will be staged for addition (listed in orange with the other payment types)
Click Save and the Check payment type will be added as an active payment type of Payment Type ‘Cash’
The custom payment type ‘Check’ can now be used to record a payment on an account.
