Head Offices can reconcile direct debit payments against each store’s list of successful and unsuccessful payments. Once the bank has processed the transactions and deposited the funds in the store’s bank account, stores should download this list from their online banking provider and send it to Head Office to reconcile payments in Minfos. You can mark off accounts as paid in Minfos following this process.

  1. Open the Direct Debit Reconciliation screen.
    1. To access this from the Customer Management module, on the menu bar at the top of the screen, click Reports
    2. Hover your cursor over 2. Statements
    3. Select 9. Direct Debit Reconciliation
