Parallels Customer and Business Manager provides the opportunity to accept bank transfers - direct debiting of customer's bank accounts.
When a customer places an order at your online store and selects a bank transfer as a payment method, the details required to perform a payment from their bank account to yours are placed into a batch. The batches are financial files of a particular format accepted by certain banks. To complete the money transfer, download and submit the batch to banks by e-mail, fax or other supported methods. For details on how bank transfers are organized in Business Manager and how to manage them, see Managing Bank Transfers.
Batch format accepted by banks of one country may not be suitable for banks from other countries. For example, banks in Germany generally accept DTAUS batches, while banks in Spain accept Norma19 batches. Business Manager provides bank transfer plugins for different batch formats.
To start accepting bank transfer payments, set up one of the available bank transfer plug-ins and associate it with your online stores. For details on how to do this, refer to the Setting Up Bank Transfer Plugin section.
For details on supported batch formats, see Appendix E.
