This article relates to electronic payments processing for Australian practitioners. EU-based practitioners should see Electronic Payments Processing - Hyperwallet Registration (EU).
To receive payments via Halaxy, you need to nominate a bank deposit account to receive payments into. You can add deposit accounts for the practice group as a whole, for individual clinics or for individual practitioners.
Only one group account can be added per practice group.
To add a deposit account:
Click Settings > Payments.
In the Deposits section, click the Edit (pencil) icon to edit existing account details for the practice group, or click Add New to add new deposit account details for an individual clinic or practitioner.
The Deposit Preferences pop-up appears. Add your Account Name, BSB and Account Number:
Set your preferences as follows:
Select Separate Transactions to receive each payment as a separate transaction
Select Batched to receive a single batched transaction containing all the payments you received each day
Select "Never assign" to bear payment processing fees yourself
Select "Always assign" to pass payment processing fees on to patients
Select Optional to be asked whether or not to assign payment processing fees whenever you manually process a payment
Payment Descriptor: This will appear on your patients' bank statements when they make a payment to you.
Phone Number: (Optional) Select a phone number to add to the descriptor on patients' bank statements when they make a payment to you. You can select numbers from your list of added phone numbers for each practice location.
RESULT: Payments will be deposited into the nominated bank account. If you have set different deposit account settings at a clinic or individual level, payments will go into the relevant account based on the location or practitioner associated with the invoice.
Fees are processed electronically into the nominated bank account(s) set up in the Deposits section of your Settings > Payments page. EU-based practitioners can nominate a PayPal account instead of a bank account. Australian-based practitioners with an appropriate access level can nominate different bank accounts for individual clinics or practitioners.
For Australia, payments typically reach your bank account in 2-3 business days. EU-based practitioners should allow up to 7 business days to receive payments into their account.
Payments from the Halaxy merchant account will appear in your statement as "HX-[Invoice Number]" for invoice payments. For deposit payments, the payment will appear in your statement as "HX-[Patient ID]", where the patient ID is the number in the URL of the patient's profile (i.e. https://www.halaxy.com/a/pr/patient/xxxxxxxx).
You will also receive quarterly statements detailing payments processed in your practice and can run finance reports at any time.
