Managing & Using Payment Types

Modified on Sat, 12 Nov, 2022 at 5:24 PM

Payment Types describe the type of payment a client used such as cash, check, card, Venmo or bank transfer. You can customize your list of Payment Types in Supporting Data. The options you create are available when you add a new payment in a client account. Payment Types appear in the Payments & Refunds tab in a client account and in the Payments Report. 

Payment Types are helpful in your client settings – an accurate record of Payments received helps when you have to a trace a payment, balance your accounts, make a refund or verify payments are received and recorded properly.

Tip: If you accept Stripe or PayPal Payments, the Payment Type is created and added automatically to your Payment Types list. Automatically created Payment Types are preceded by the word AUTO: (i.e. AUTO: Stripe) and cannot be edited or deleted.

Note: Once a Payment Type is used in a transaction, you cannot delete it.
