House Accounts - Add, Void or Refund Payments

The article explains how to add, void or refund payments to your House Accounts on Cloudbeds PMS.

Add, Void or Refund Payments to House Accounts

Add Payment
  1. Starting from the House Account section of your Main Menu, click on the House Account where the payment should be added
  2. Click Add/Refund Payment button
  3. Select Add Payment
  1. Enter the amount
  2. Select the Payment Method
  3. Post with current date and time - When this box is checked the current date and time will be posted for the transaction when you click Continue button. You can uncheck if you are adding a transaction for the past.

For accounts with Payment Gateway enabled:

  • Choose to either charge only, or record previous payment (don't charge)
  • If you choose the Record previous payment (Don't charge) option, the system will add the payment as a record and won't charge the card.
  • If you choose Credit Card as a payment method and charge the amount, enter and store the credit card details. Check the box if you are charging a card with details not already in the system.
  1. Add notes if desired
  2. Click Continue
  • The date of processed payment can only be the current date and can't be set to the past or future even if Post with current date and time option is off (this option puts a date of transaction = today, but disabling it doesn't mean you can process payment for a future or past date)
  • This functionality does not work with cash payment
