Receiving Payments from Customers

While the process is similar throughout aACE, you can receive customer payments from three starting points:

  1. Start from the order
  2. Start from the open invoice
  3. Start from a new receipt

Note: Payments using credit cards will attempt to authorize on saving. If approved, the card will be charged and the authorization code will appear. If the charge is declined, a dialog appears informing you of the decline. For more details, read about credit card authorizations and charges and about processing credit card payments on orders.
