Table of contents
BillPay's connection to Xentral is available. It allows you to correctly display your BillPay in Xentral.
Please note that BillPay takes over your receivables in their entirety, thus protecting you against the risk of non-payment. Therefore, BillPay is the payee and requires that the payment data of BillPay itself is be deposited on the invoices. These will automatically be the API, you do not have to store them in Xentral.
Note: This is a legacy module that is no longer supported or developed by Xentral. In order to allow our customers to continue working with the existing functionality, it is still available in the Xentral App Store.

Here you can also store your BillPay access data:
