By using optical character recognition (OCR) payments, you can receive payments electronically from customers. Before you can accept payments, you can attach the OCR method of payment to a customer record to make it the default method of payment for invoicing. You can also change the method of payment for the record before you settle an invoice. Refer to the following table for information about the methods of payment and the file formats that you can use for customers and vendors.

The method of payment that is attached to the customer is not the current method of payment in the following two scenarios:

  • When you import the files that the bank sends, you must create and use the method of payment for OCR imports. You do not have to attach the method of payment to the customer record.

  • When the OCR file is read, the method of payment may be changed to direct debit or eInvoice for the customer.

  1. Click Accounts receivable > Setup > Payment > Methods of payment.

  2. Create a new method of payment. For more information, see Set up a file format for a method of payment for customers.

  3. In the Method of payment field, enter OCR as the method of payment to receive payments electronically from customers.


    Other methods of payment include TelePay (NO), TelePay 2.0 (NO), and BBS Direkte Remittering (NO), which can be used for both customer and vendor payments. In addition, the TelePay 1.06 (NO) method of payment is used only for vendor payments.
