Batch Payment Processing in Odoo 13
In Odoo 13 batch payment processing allows you to create and send multiple payments in one go by simply uploading a file. You can then make a single transfer to TransferWise to cover all payments in the batch. Some people may announce a batch payment a bulk payment, or mass payment. It is used to handling tasks like payroll, end-of-month. Batch Payment Processing is most cost-effective to do it just once per day, as the credit card processor charges a fee every time a batch is processed. In preference of spending time processing particular payments throughout the day, now you can easily upload a batch of transactions for processing at the end of the day so it is used to save time. Batch processing is advantageous because it is a cost-effective means of handling large amounts of data at once.
Batch deposit is available for check and credit card transactions with the option to add an adjustment for applicable fees to the appropriate expense account automatically.
