Debit Orders

Once an Octiv client has set up their Netcash account, Octiv will need the clients Netcash keys in order to create the webhook. 

  • Merchant Account Number:
  • Account Service Key:
  • Debit Order Service Key:

These keys have to be shared with the Octiv team as the webhook is created in the backend.

The keys are then added to the clients Octiv profile in the backend. This can only be done by an Octiv Team member.

After we have added the webhook keys we inform the Octiv client about the changes they have to implement on their Netcash account as well as how to run Debit Order via Octiv.

The Netcash account manager must please double check that the below changes have been added to the clients Netcash account.

Please go into the clients Netcash account and enable the following settings:

Netcash Login > Account Profile > Net Connector > Debit orders > Edit

Please select:

  • Ignore error
  • Auto Forward Date

* Ensure that your email address is correct ( this is the address where you will receive your error reports)

This will ensure that if there is an erroneous member that the batch will still be processed. Should the batch fall on a Sunday or Public holiday the batch will also be processed on the next available day.

Below please see email sent to the Octiv client once the webhook has been added in the backend of their profile.

Managing your debit batch

1. Adding new members to debit orders

For New members going onto direct debit you need to set the member to “debit order” payment type and select the date.(it is best to select 1-3 payment dates otherwise you will be receiving revenue in on various dates. Also, its good to plan when revenue is coming in so that you can cover your over heads)

From here you will also need to collect all your members billing details and start adding them to debit order payment type as mentioned below, this will be a single action for each member. If have a bulk list of these members, please email onboarding@octivfitness.com & ask us to assist with the bulk upload of members billing details.

> Members > manage packages > filter payment type from “cash/eft” to Debit order > add in the account details > save.

2. Managing your debit order invoices

In Accounts > Debit batches:

You can get a full view of your Past and Upcoming debit batches under this page by selecting the correct location and run date at the top of the screen. From this view you can also directly edit the invoices & Add Items for payment per member. It is advised that you make amendments under the invoice tab first so that the finalised Debit order batch displays correctly.

You can make these amendments provided that the batch has NOT YET been submitted. Should you need to edit the invoice after the batch has been submitted you will have to edit it under the invoice page in Octiv and in your Netcash account before authorisation.

In Accounts > invoices

It is suggested that you custom filter your debit order invoices to ensure you are working on all of them e.g. if the generation date is set to the 20th of each month and the payment due date is set to the 1st then custom filter in the following manner:

  1. Change the filter from “All invoices” to “Debit order invoices”
  2. Then, change the filter from “Current month” to “Custom”
  3. Fill the dates as specified.
  4. From here you can edit generated invoices.

3. Check your debit batch

In Accounts > Debit batches:

After your invoices are finalised you need to check that:

  1. all your invoices are the correct amount
  2. all the members that are meant to be on the batch are on the batch

4. Submission into your Netcash account

Your batch will be automatically submitted into your Netcash account 5 days before the debit run date.

  • On submission you will receive an error report via email from Netcash, if your batch is “successful with errors” please email this through to us so that we can assist you in finding the erroneous member and advise further.
  • You then need to check that the amount in your Netcash batch matches the amount in your Octiv debit run.
  • Once you are happy you can authorise the batch. You need to authorise the batch 3 days before the debit run date.

Authorising your batch in Netcash:

  1. Log into your Netcash Account
  2. Go to “Services”
  3. Go to Debit Orders > Manage debit orders > Authorise your batch

5. Reconcilement of payments

Once the debit order has ran, your invoices for your members will be automatically marked as paid if the transaction was successful or unpaid if the transaction was not successful.

Things to remember Netcash:

  1. 5 days before the run date, the debit date the batch is automatically sent to Netcash for pre-authorisation
  1. you will then need to login to your Netcash account to authorise the batch. cut off for authorisation of a two day batch is 3 days before the run date.
  1. If you have added a member close to the debit order date e.g. from the 22nd onwards – there is a likelihood that the invoice will not be generated for the next run – > please check this.
  1. If an invoice needs to be edited after it has been submitted, you need to do this in your Netcash account as well as in the Octiv invoices, before the batch is authorised.
  1. If invoices need to be added to the debit batch, after it has been submitted, this needs to be done through your Netcash account or request that the client pays via cash / eft.
  1. Befcash error report. Errors will be in the form of incorrect billing details. Please forward the error report to Octiv Support support@octivfitness.com so that we can identify who the member is.
  1. Once the amendment is made, please let Octiv support know so that we can resubmit the amended batch (the old batch can then be deleted and the latest batch authorised).
