Review the transaction in the billing system

The following instructions are specific to Zuora.

1. Open Zuora

2. Find the customer

  • Search for the customer by Name or Account Number.

3. Review the Default Gateway

  • If the permission on the associated profile has "One-Time Purchase Persistent Permission" set to Full , or the user chose to process a one-time payment with the permission "One-Time Purchase Configurable Permission" set to Full, then the Default Payment Gateway should not have changed on the profile.

4. Review the Default Payment Method

  • If the permission on the associated profile has "One-Time Purchase Persistent Permission" set to Full , or the user chose to process a one-time payment with the permission "One-Time Purchase Configurable Permission" set to Full, then the Default Payment Method should not have changed on the profile. If it is set to None or not chosen, the Default Payment Method should be the newly created ACH payment method.

5. Check that ACH was used for this particular payment

  • Under Transactions, go to the Payments tab, and click on the payment number. Make sure the Payment Method information aligns with the ACH payment information that was entered.
  • View the Additional Fields and verify that the payment gateway is the ACH one.
