Billing Tree Setup

The Billing Tree Setup window is accessed via the menu path "System\ Preferences\Billing Tree Setup". This screen is where you set up the configurations that the module will use for your connectivity and default company preferences. These details include login credentials that the module needs to connect to the Billing Tree Gateways and the default transaction types, convenience fee and other preferences that the module will use.

You have separate setup windows for credit cards or ACH payments. ACH payments are for debits coming from someone's checking or savings bank account. These are possible because the debtor provides their banking information to you with their verbal authorization to withdraw a payment electronically. You can also set up sending EFT Notices to comply with EFT regulations.
