Payment Types and Options
Payment types and options are configured as part of initial terminal setup or by calling your relationship manager.
Merchants have the option to customize the payment types, the payment options, and their contact information under the invoices and quotes settings tab in the Converge User Interface (UI) settings.
When a customer receives an email invoice, they have the option to click a link to a Converge Hosted Invoices Page (HIP) form where they can enter payment information for the invoice.
Supported Payment Types
Billing and invoicing / hospitality can support the following payment types:
Credit cards are a payment type enabled by default.
Supported Payment Options
Billing and invoicing / hospitality can support the following payment options:
Partial payments allows a customer to pay less than the full total of their invoice and receive a new total for the remaining balance. This lets customers split the total balance of an invoice between multiple payment types or multiple paying parties.
A merchant can enable partial payments in the Converge UI settings tab if it is not as part of the terminal setup.
Dynamic Currency Conversion - DCC
Billing and invoicing / hospitality can process Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) for merchants. With DCC, the merchant sets their prices in whatever currency they prefer - usually whatever their local currency is. When the customer enters a card for payment, if the card is valid for DCC, the customer will receive the option to pay with their own local currency.
You can enable DCC as part of the terminal setup. If your terminal is already set up and you would like to enable DCC, please contact your relationship manager.
For more details on the DCC fields, request and response samples, refer to Dynamic Currency Conversionopen_in_newLink opens new window.
Multi Currency Conversion - MCC
Multi Currency Conversion (MCC) enables a HIP to support multiple currency types as part of its display. When a customer arrives at the HIP, they will see their receipt totals in each of the currencies supported by the merchant’s MCC setup.
You can enable MCC as part of the terminal setup. If your terminal is already set up and you would like to enable MCC, please contact your relationship manager.
