This option places all credit card receipts into a holding bay, whereby when the monies are transferred into your physical bank account you will then need to pay them off to your bank account less fees. This option would normally only be chosen for Amex or Diners and should only be activated with the knowledge of how to pay these transactions off.
G/L Acc Code: This field is mandatory if you have chosen Pay To Account. This G/L Acc Code will be used to apply against the commissions held by the bank when the monies are transferred into your account.
