Direct Billing is an arrangement whereby guest charges are transferred to an Accounts Receivable account for payment. Typically, when a guest uses direct billing, an invoice is sent directly to the guest's company or other sponsoring organization. To be eligible for direct billing, an Accounts Receivable account must be associated with the guest's profile.
The Authorize Direct Bill option is available to you on the Privileges screen. When direct billing authorization is granted, the Auth. Bill. lamp is displayed on the Guest Reservation, Billing, and other screens (See Indicator Lamps for complete list and details.)
Note: The Authorize Direct Bill option does not control whether the guest can be checked out using the direct billing method of payment. Its purpose is to provide a visible indicator that direct billing is authorized.
See Authorize Direct Bill for additional information.
