Storman and BPay
Posted by Cameron Telfer, Last modified by Duncan Clarke on 10 January 2017 01:20 PM
Below is an explanation of what BPay is, and how you can integrate your BPay account with Storman.
BPAY is an electronic bill payment system in Australia only that enables payments to be made online, mobile or telephone banking to organisations that are registered as BPAY billers. BPay is available Australian Storman Ezidebit users only.
How do I get BPay?
One of the key questions is whether or not you want to use a generic BPAY biller code called "EZIDEBIT Storage" which is available to use straight away, or you can you can request your own for a one-off charge. Requesting a your own also takes about 4 weeks to process with the banks.
We will need to know your Biller Code (this is a 6 digit number) and the Sub Biller Code (this is a 4 digit number). Our Support Team will configure this in Storman for you and create unique BPAY Reference numbers for all of your customers.
Below is a screenshot from Storman, showing the BPay reference number highlighted for a test customer.
Firstly you can let your Storers know that they can pay you using BPay! You can do this by sending a notice plan to your storers as shown below:
Secondly, you need to add the Bpay payment information to the bottom of your invoices. Storman Support can help you with this, and an example is shown below:
If you are not using a Custom Invoice Footer, you can use the new Storman 'Standard Footer BPay'. This can be selected from Maintenance > Invoice and Receipt Setup > Invoice Footer.
Your Storers will login to their bank and make a BPay payment using the Biller Code and Reference Number.
At the start of your Daily Processing, Storman automatically will contact the Ezidebit BPay server and check for any new payments that have come through.
If a payment has been made by one of your Storers, Storman will allocate that payment to the appropriate Storman Agreement and create a receipt transaction of the amount paid.
