Payment Modes

Payment Modes represent the different methods by which your Invoices will be paid by your Customers (and by which you will pay your Suppliers). Typical examples are cash, cheque, direct debit and credit card. For many businesses, the difference between such payment methods in terms of the way they are accounted for is minimal, but where appropriate, Hansa does allow each Payment Mode to debit a different Account and to be paid into a different bank account. Payment Modes can also be differentiated by Object. Note that this setting is also available in the Purchase Ledger.

You can enter many different Payment Modes, using the matrix on the 'Payment Modes' screen. To add a Payment Mode, click in the Code field of the first blank row and enter appropriate text. To remove a Payment Mode, click on the row number on the left of the row and press the Backspace key.
