Lesson Plan

  1.     Description Action
  1. 01 Funds distribution is a process that allows to distribute funds between different recipients within various transaction processing use cases.
  2. 02 Funds distributions can be distributed between the following recipients:
    • Holding account - represents a bank account which is owned by a merchant, but is used to store a specific part of money, e.g. collected taxes.
    • Vendor - represents 3rd-party which receives some part of the payment. Vendors are used in the marketplace funds distributions scenario, where merchants have several vendors, such as suppliers of merchandise, that need to receive a certain percentage of the payment. The system supports 5 different fixed rates, which allows to select up to 5 different vendor levels (I-V), each vendor level is connected to a different rate.
    • Reseller - represents 3rd-party, but uses funds distributions scenarios that differ from a vendor's ones, such as when a software company, that a merchant uses for business needs, has to receive a certain percentage for usage of its software.
    • Merchant Balance - represents merchant's funds.
    • Convenience Fee Balance - represents merchant's charges withdrawn for using merchant's services for credit card payments.
