Batch Payments: Batch Deposits (checks, cash etc.)


A Batch Deposit groups multiple payments in a single batch. This allows you to deposit several payments into your bank account with a single transaction. This is particularly useful to deposit cash and checks.
This feature allows you to list several customer payments and print a deposit slip. This ticket contains the details of the transactions and a reference to the batch deposit. You can then select this reference during a bank reconciliation to match the single bank statement line with all the transactions listed in the batch deposit.
