Transaction Hub Customer Payments and Bank Deposits modulesLast updated on 01/23/2023

The Transaction Hub is made up of three Accounts Receivable (A/R) modules: Invoices, Customer Payments, and Bank Deposits. These modules can be accessed at any time from the Accounting screen. This broad set of features allows you to quickly complete your most common accounting workflows: access your data in one place and connect it across all related documents.

This guide covers the Customer Payments and Deposits modules, which you can use to collect payments, review them, and take actions without having to leave the Accounting page.


Things to know

  • The default tab for the Customer Payments module is Payment Status.

  • Each tab’s list can be filtered by clicking the image1 icon.

  • Filters and column settings are saved on a per user basis.


Overview

The Customer Payments module has four tabs:

Payment Status

Sort your payments with three payment status groupings, Failed - Last 30 Days, Pending - Last 30 Days, and Success - Last 30 Days. You can quickly view recent credit card and ACH charges to ensure they’re being successfully processed.

Note: If you are not using ServiceTitan Payments, all payments are grouped as Successful.

Applied Status

Sort your payments by three applied status groupings, Unapplied, Partially Applied, and Fully Applied - Last 30 Days. Track which payment credits are still attached to customer profiles and which ones are attached to invoices. For more information, see Apply available credit to an invoice.

Refund Status

Sort your payments by three refund status groupings, Not Refunded - Last 30 Days, Partially Refunded - Last 30 Days, and Fully Refunded - Last 30 Days. Quickly view recent credit card and ACH refunds to ensure they’re being issued correctly. For more information, see Refund payment applied to an invoice.

Ungrouped Payments

View all your ungrouped payments at a glance. These are successful payments that still need to be added to a Bank Deposit.

Bank Deposits

The Bank Deposits module is a single tab with two groupings, Open and Deposited - Last 30 Days. Open means deposits that have not been finalized and can still have more payments added to them.

To filter a payments/deposits list by a grouping, like Unapplied for example, click the dollar amount under the grouping’s title. To ungroup it, click the dollar amount again.

Tip: You can also filter a list by Not Deposited/Deposited, Not Reviewed/Reviewed, and Not Resolved/Resolved in the same way.
