Credit Activity

CashBox allows you to allocate Credits to Accounts, AutoBills, and Products. Credits can be Token, time, currency, or Gift Card based, and can be managed through their time stamp, VID, or Sort Order.

When a transaction is processed using Tokens or currency, CashBox automatically deducts available Credits of the same type from the corresponding AutoBill or Account before billing the designated Payment Method for the remaining balance. When Time Credit is allocated to an AutoBill, the AutoBill’s billing process is delayed by the amount of time granted.

Credit Activity displays your currency, time and token credit activity for all your customers.  Each credit made in Cashbox is displayed here with the below information.  You can select the Customer ID to drill down into that customer.

You can add Credits to a Customer or Subscription using the CashBox Portal grant credit functionality from the Customer or Subscription pages.
