Oracle R12 Credit Card Payments Setups and Process

Introduction
Usage of Credit Card for any purchases has become common. End Customers use credit cards to make their payment for any purchases made. Client implementing Oracle EBS now has the facility to integrate Oracle EBS modules like iPayments, iReceivables, iProcurement etc with Credit Card payment functionality. Oracle EBS is now compatible to support either Gateway or Processor model of Credit Card Payment integration.

Scope of the Document:
This document gives the basic mandatory setups that are to be done in Oracle Payments and Account Receivables module for credit card payment integration with iReceivables module.

Non Scope of the Document:
Credit Card payments shall also be setup and integrated for use in other EBS modules like Advanced Collections, iProcurement etc. The setups for integration with those modules are not shown in this document.

Setup Overview
The first part of the document will walk through all the setup stages required in Cash Management (CE), Receivables (AR), and Payments (IBY) in detail.

2. Creation of Receipt Class and Receipt Method:
Navigation: Receivables Manager à Setup à Receipts à Receipt Classes

Receivables uses receipt methods to account for your receipt entries and applications. Receipt methods also determine a customer's remittance bank information.

Note: You define receipt methods in the Receipt Classes window.

You can assign multiple remittance banks to each receipt method, but only one bank account can be the primary account for each currency. For each remittance bank branch account assigned to a receipt method, you must define all of your receipt accounts. You can then assign your receipt methods to your receipt sources to use with your AutoLockbox and manually entered receipts.

If you remit receipts in several currencies for a single receipt method, then you must enter at least one remittance

bank per currency. At least one of these remittance banks must be primary.

The receipt class you assign to each of your receipt methods determines the processing steps that Receivables requires for receipts that you create using this receipt method. These steps include whether to require confirmation, remittance, and bank clearance for receipts that you create with a specific receipt class. See: Receipt Classes.

Receivables requires that you specify a receipt method when you create your automatic receipts through the Receipt Batches window. You also assign receipt methods to invoices when you manually enter them in the Transactions window. If an invoice will be automatically paid by credit card, direct debit, or bills receivable, then you must assign an automatic receipt method to the invoice.

Note: Enable automatic correction of funds transfer errors by mapping error codes to corrective actions, for each automatic receipt method. See: Enabling Automatic Funds Transfer Error Corrections.

You can assign all receipt methods to transactions in the Transactions window, except for bills receivable remittance receipt methods. You enter bills receivable remittance receipt methods in the Remittances window.


This example will demonstrate setting up for creation method automatic and payment method credit card

1. Navigate to the Receipt Classes window.
2. Enter a unique Name for your Receipt Class.
3. If you are creating a Notes Receivable receipt class, check the Notes Receivable box. You cannot change this attribute after you assign a receipt method and then save this receipt class. See: Notes Receivable, Oracle Receivables User Guide.
4. Creation Method.
  If you choose Automatic, you can create receipts with this receipt class using the Automatic Receipt program.
See: Creating Automatic Receipts, Oracle Receivables User Guide. In addition, for these receipts, Oracle Payments is responsible for the funds capture process. See: Enabling the Funds Capture Process.
5. To require automatic receipts assigned to this receipt class to be confirmed before they can be remitted, check the Require Confirmation box. Check this box to confirm automatic receipts using this receipt class in the Confirm Automatic Receipts window. (This will not be used in this example) If you are defining a receipt class for use with ACH bank account transfers, then you should not check this box.
6. Choose a Remittance Method. The remittance method determines the accounts that Receivables uses for automatic receipts that you create using the receipt method assigned to this receipt class. Choose one of the following methods:

  Standard: Use the remittance account for automatic receipts or for standard bills receivable assigned to a receipt method with this receipt class.

Note: If the creation method is Automatic, then you cannot select No Remittance as the Remittance Method.

To require receipts created using a receipt method assigned to this receipt class to be reconciled before posting them to your cash account in the general ledger, choose one of the following Clearance Methods:

1.   Directly: Choose this method if you do not expect the receipts to be remitted to the bank and subsequently cleared. These receipts will be assumed to be cleared at the time of receipt entry and will require no further processing. Choosing this method is the same as setting Require Bank Clearance to No in previous releases of Receivables.
  By Automatic Clearing: Choose this method to clear receipts using the Automatic Clearing program. See: Automatic Clearing for Receipts, Oracle Receivables User Guide. (Receipts using this method can also be cleared in Oracle Cash Management.)
  By Matching: Choose this method if you want to clear your receipts manually in Oracle Cash Management.

2. Enter the receipt method to assign to this receipt class. See: Receipt Methods.

1. Enter a unique Name for your receipt method, then enter how you want this receipt method to be printed on your statements in the Printed Name field. The default Printed Name is the receipt method name.
Note: Oracle Receivables lets you create a receipt method only if there is no transaction type, adjustment, or receivable activity with the same name.

2. Enter the range of Effective Dates for this receipt method. The default start date is the current date, but you can change it. If you do not enter an end date, this receipt method will be active indefinitely.

3. To assign the same transaction number to the debit memo generated when you create a debit memo reversal, check the Debit Memo Inherit Receipt Numbers box. Do not check this box if you want Receivables to generate unique debit memo numbers automatically. See: Reversing Receipts, Oracle Receivables User Guide.

4. If the receipt class associated with this receipt method has a Manual or AP/AR Netting creation method, then skip to the last step.

5. To ensure that the receipt number is always the same as the transaction number to which it is applied, check the Receipts Inherit Transaction Numbers box. This option helps you track Automatic Receipts. Do not check this box if you want Receivables to generate document numbers for Automatic Receipts assigned to this receipt class and receipt method.

6. If the receipt class associated with this receipt method has an Automatic creation method, enter a Number of Receipts Rule (see Number of Receipts Rules above).

7. Enter a Receipt Maturity Date Rule. Receivables uses this rule to pay invoices that have different due dates with a single receipt using this receipt method. Enter Earliest if you want the receipt maturity date to be the earliest due date of all of the invoices that your receipt covers. Enter Latest if you want the maturity date to be the latest due date of all of the invoices that your receipt covers.

8. Enter the Automatic Print Program for transmissions using this receipt method. Receivables provides one standard receipt print program to format the output of your payment selection and creation programs when you physically create the receipt document. If you need a different receipt print program format, you must copy this standard receipt print program, and modify it accordingly.

9. Specify a number of Lead Days. Lead days indicate the number of days before the invoice due date that an invoice can be selected for application by the Automatic Receipts program using this receipt method.

10.          Select a funds capture payment method. A funds capture payment method is a payment medium by which your customer chooses to remit payment to you. Oracle Payments predefines funds capture payment methods, but you can define your own. See: Setting Up Funds Capture Payment Methods,
Oracle Payments Implementation Guide.
Select Credit Card for transactions to be paid by credit card.
Select Bank Account Transfer for transactions to be paid by ACH (Automated Clearing House) transfer.

For transactions to be paid by direct debit, create a new receipt method or use an existing receipt method, and assign or define a new EFT­specific payment method.

11.          Select Funds Transfer Error Handling to enable the automatic correction of funds transfer errors. See: Enabling Automatic Funds Transfer Error Corrections.

12.          Save your work. To assign a remittance bank to this receipt method, see: Assigning Remittance Banks.

Assign Bank Accounts (Also known as 'remittance bank')
1. Choose Bank Accounts.
2. Enter general Remittance Bank information, such as Bank, Branch, Account Name, and range of Effective Dates. You can only select active banks and bank branches.
3. If the creation method of the receipt class is Automatic, enter a Minimum Receipt Amount. This is the minimum amount in this currency that must be specified when you create automatic receipts with this receipt method.

Note: You can also define a minimum receipt amount at the customer profile level. Receivables uses the larger of the two minimum receipt amounts when creating automatic receipts.

4. If the remittance method for this receipt class is either Factoring or Standard and Factoring, specify the number of Risk Elimination Days for receipts created with this receipt class (optional). When you factor receipts, Receivables creates a short term debt to account for your risk in case of customer default. When you run the Automatic Clearing program to clear or risk eliminate these receipts, the debt is cleared y days after each receipt's maturity date, where y is the number of risk elimination days that you enter here.

5. If the remittance method is not No Remittance, enter the number of Clearing Days for receipts created with this receipt class (optional). Remitted receipts are cleared x days after their maturity date, where x is the number of clearing days that you enter here. Factored receipts are cleared immediately on the remittance date.

6. To be able to override this bank during the remittance process, check the Override Bank box.

7. If you do not want this to be the primary remittance bank account in this currency for this receipt method, uncheck the Primary check box. You can only assign one primary remittance account per currency to your receipt method. Receivables ensures that at least one remittance account per currency is primary.

8. In the GL Accounts tabbed region, enter GL Account information for this remittance bank.

Note: Cash Account, Receipt Confirmation Account and Remittance Account cannot be updated once the record has been saved. Therefore if incorrect data is entered it will require a new receipt method.

9. In the Unearned Discounts and Earned Discounts fields, select an unearned discount activity type and an earned discount activity type from the lists of values.

10.          If using Oracle Trade Management, then in the Claim Investigations field, select a claim investigation activity type.

Ensure the Receipt Method Name mentioned in the receipt class is linked correctly in Payee Routing Rules.

11.          If the creation method of the associated receipt class is Automatic, open the Formatting Programs tabbed region, then enter formatting program information.

  To run a printing program when you format remittance batches for receipts remitted to you using this receipt method, enter a Remittance Print program. When you factor your remittances, Receivables notifies your print program so that it functions accordingly. You can use this program to create and send remittance advice to customers to whom you assign this receipt method.

  To run a factoring print program when you format your batches of remitted receipts for this receipt method, enter a Factoring Print program. When you factor your remittances, Receivables notifies your factoring print program so that it behaves accordingly. You cannot enter a factoring transmission program for this receipt method if your bank branch account's factoring creation medium is magnetic medium.

Oracle Payments Minimum/Dummy Setup For Credit Card/Purchase Card Funds Capture Processing (Doc ID 553614.1)
Oracle Payments Minimum/Dummy Setup For Direct Debit Funds Capture Processing (Doc ID 471418.1)

Note: This document is for customers NOT using real time bank account processing by integrating with a backend payment system. Setups in the document can be used to process dummy authorization and settlement requests in order to successfully create and remit bank account receipts.

11i Oracle iPayment is replaced with a brand new product called Oracle Payments in Release 12. This new product has extended functionality for funds capture (inbound payments) and funds disbursement (outbound payments) processing. In Release 12, both Oracle Receivables and Payables have dependency on Oracle Payments implementation. For funds capture processing, minimum implementation of Oracle Payments is mandatory even if realtime payment processing functionality is not used. If real time payment processing functionality is used, extensive setups as outlined in Oracle Payments implementation guide are needed. This note will document the setup's needed in Oracle Payments for merchants implementing Receivables (funds capture) without using real time payment processing. If these setups are not performed, receipt and remittance batches will fail with error "INVALID_PAYEE: Invalid payee identifier".

Existing 11i customer had the ability to configure receipt class/method in such a way that realtime payment processsing can be turned off. This was done by setting payment type and merchant_ref to null. In Release 12, merchant_ref was obsoleted and replaced with Payment Method, created in Oracle Payments. This payment method is mandatory and for merchants upgrading from 11i, it will default to 'Bank Account Transfer'. Therefore merchants upgrading to Release 12 will need to perform following dummy setups in Payments to successfully process receipt and remittance batches.

Following minimum setups needs to be completed:
