Creating a payment service for balances
To accept balance payments, a service must be created in PayBridge. This should be created in the usual way, (see Card Services), with a few additional restrictions. A service for balance payments must:
- be of type 'Billed'
- be assigned to a fund with a code that matches the fund code of imported balances
- have a check digit assigned which matches the format of the imported balances' reference numbers.
We could import balance records to the system which all have a fund code of
02, and a reference number that is five digits long ending in 5.
To accept balance payments in this scenario, we could create a fund with the following details:
Name: FundTest Code: 02
We would also need to create a check digit:
Mask: ####* Modulus: 1 Subtract from: 5
We could then create a 'Billed' service using FundTest and our check digit.
