This information applies to online company files in AccountRight 2016 and later (Australia only).

Get paid faster by giving your customers more convenient ways to pay you.

If you only offer cheque or direct deposit as your payment options, you risk customers putting off paying their invoices until they find time to do it, or they may even forget.

Online payments gives your customers easier and faster ways to pay you. They can pay you online using their VISA, MasterCard, AMEX or BPAY, and there are more payment options coming soon.

Check out the video to see what online payments can do for your business.

Online payments is only available if your file is online as part of an AccountRight subscription, and you’re using AccountRight’s built-in emailing feature to send invoices to your customers. It's all part of your AccountRight subscription, but there are some additional fees and charges you should know about.

Getting started

Getting started

It’s easy to set up online payments. Just make sure you're the business owner, and then click the Get set up button in the Sales window.

If you’ve been using Microsoft Outlook to send emails, an assistant will appear to help you set up AccountRight’s own emailing feature and your payment options.

If you’re already using AccountRight to send emails, rather than Microsoft Outlook, you’ll be taken straight to the online payments merchant portal where you can log in with your MYOB account details and set up your banking details.

Handling the payment in your company file

Handling the payment in your company file

When a customer makes a payment, the details will automatically be entered into your company file for you, and the invoice will be closed off.

Note that the individual payments you receive will be recorded in your Undeposited Funds account. You will need to clear the Undeposited Funds account regularly by preparing a bank deposit.

For example, say you receive three online payments on Monday. The payment details of each transaction will be listed in your Undeposited Funds account. MYOB will deposit the total of the three payments overnight into your bank account as one lump sum. So on Tuesday, you would prepare a bank deposit in your company file that includes the three payments, and that matches the deposit transaction that will appear on your bank feed and bank statements.
