1870205 - Credit Card Payment Outside Business ByDesign


You wish to select Credit Card as payment method for sales transactions (e.g.: Sales Order/Customer Invoice), however you receive Credit Card payments and process them out of SAP Business ByDesign system.


SAP Business ByDesign.


The Payment Method entered in Customer Invoice, for example, has the meaning to define how the BusinessByDesign system will collect the money from the customer. It is not an information field as “the invoice is paid by”.

The Credit Card payment method can only be used in sales transactions if you have the integration with a third party like Paymetric, Computop,for example, otherwise the system would be obliged to store delicate credit card detail information which is highly sensitive, such as tokens.


It is still possible to process these payments externally and inform the system (ByDesign) that these are external payments, which means, not processed within the SAP Business ByDesign system. In other words, you can select the External Payment in the sales transactions, then each open item can be cleared on the bank statement with the transaction details provided from the credit card provider.

External payments are payments not processed within the SAP Business ByDesign system. If an e-Shop is connected to your system, the e-Shop collects payment confirmation from the online payment service provider used by you, and supplies this information to the system. An online payment service provider offers online services for accepting electronic payments through a variety of payment methods. The system enables you to process these external payments.
