Transaction Type Sample - Payment Of Agency NSF Fee

Let's assume that an operator posts a check payment to a debtor account. A few days later, the check is returned to you NSF. You process the check, including your NSF fee. Later on, you receive another payment from the debtor to cover both the NSF check and your NSF fee.

The Payment Of Agency NSF Fee transaction type has been set up to easily post payment of the NSF fee portion when you receive a "good" payment that covers both a check that previously went NSF and your agency's NSF fee that you charged to the account.
