Create Partner Invoice

Partner Invoicing can be used to move funds between merchants accounts and wallets. (Eg: This can be used to distribute funds from a franchise merchant to the master franchisee)

πŸ“˜

Before starting with partner Invoices please contact Ezypay at [email protected] to have the accounts configured to use partner invoices

Process Flow on How Partner Invoice Works

Partner Invoice is used when funds collected by Ezypay (from billing) are distributed from one merchant's account to another merchant's account. In order for this to happen, all parties will need to have accounts set up on Ezypay. The receiving merchant does not need to be using Ezypay's billing services to have funds settled into their account. Below is a process flow displaying how partner invoice works.

Alt textAlt text

As an example, Partner Invoices can be useful if your business model operates as franchise, you can arrange to have your franchisee's pay their franchise fees, royalty fees, equipment hire fees, etc as a partner invoice rather than having to manage this separately. In simpler terms, it's Ezypay helping you manage your payments.

πŸ“˜

Scenario

Franchisee Gym A needs to pay head office/franchisor $1000 franchise fees each month.

As part of the settlement process, Ezypay will deduct the $1000 from Franchisee Gym A's account first before we settle the funds (that Ezypay had collected through billing their customers) to them, and arrange for the $1000 to be settled into the head office/franchisor's account on a monthly basis.

🚧

Important Note:

Partner Invoice needs to be created before any settlement can run for a partner invoice (recipient). This is to ensure there is enough money in the partner invoice (recipient's) wallet to be distributed to the issuers wallet.

The only possible failure for a partner invoice would be due to insufficient funds in the recipient's wallet.

The scope to create the authentication token needs to include a partner (Integrator's will need to contact Ezypay to allow this scope to be enabled)

No tax will be charged using the Partner Invoice between 2 existing Merchants.

NamingDescription

recipientMerchantThe merchant who will transfer the amount based on who the issuerMerchant is.
