Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Receivables Work Center.
- Click on Automatic Payments View.
- Search for Payment ID XXX (XXX represents the ID of the Payment).
- Click on View Payment Proposals.
Result: For Invoice YYY, (YYY represents the ID of the Invoice) Payment Method is Direct Debit.
Expectation: It should be Bank Transfer as per Configuration.
The only way a Company can receive a Payment from its Customer is either through Direct Debit, Credit Card Payment or Incoming Check. There is no way that a Bank Transfer can be initiated for Payment of a Customer Invoice.
As outlined in the Cause section, this is a standard and expect behaviour of the system. Bank Transfer cannot be initiated for Payment of a Customer Invoice.
