rapid! PayCard Usage

There are two ways to use the rapid! PayCard integration to deposit money into an employee's payroll debit card: Adding it through ACH, and adding it instantly. Adding it through ACH will have the money deposit with the other payments made when closing an account period. Adding it instantly will deposit the money as soon as a payroll batch is closed.



Payment Made Through ACH

Payments made through ACH can be done for single or multiple employees.

  1. Open Employee > Payroll > Direct deposit.

  2. Modify the Account Type on the employee bank to 'Pay card'.

  3. Click Save.

  4. Navigate to Time Entry and complete the time entry process for the employee.
    Note: For more information on the Time Entry Process, view the Time Entry overview help page

  5. Navigate to Payroll and complete the payroll process for the employee. When the accounting period is closed during weekly process, the ACH file generated will include all employees that have payments to banks with account type 'Pay Card'.

 

Payment Made Instantly

Payments can be made instantly for a single employee or in a batch. 

  1. Navigate to Employee > Payroll > Direct deposit.

  2. Modify the Account Type on the employee bank to  be 'rapid! PayCard'.

  3. Click Save.

  4. Navigate to Time Entry and complete the tine entry process for the employee.
    Note: For more information on the Time Entry process, view the Time Entry Overview help page.

  5. Navigate to Payroll and complete the payroll process for the employee.
    Note: For more information on the Payroll process, view the Payroll Process Overview help page.
    • If rapid! PayCard Auto Post is set to True, funds will be automatically deposited to employee debit cards.
    • If rapid! PayCard Auto Post config option is set to false, transactions can be selected through the payroll Actions Menu for processing.

If an employee is only being paid instantly once, and is normally paid through ACH, the employee's bank account type will need to be switched back to 'Pay Card' before the employee's next payroll batch is closed.

 

 

Payment Made Manually

Use the manual option for rapid! PayCard loading at your site if you process payroll for several employees who use the cards at once and want the ability to select which cards to load at a given time. 

 

  1. In the Payroll section, process and post payroll as usual. 

  2. When the posting has been successful, navigate to Back Office > Payroll > Home

  3. From the Actions drop-down menu, click rapid! PayCard Load Card. The rapid! PayCard wizard displays. 

  4. The rapid! PayCard Load Card window lists all employees that are setup for payment with rapid! PayCard. Place a checkmark next to the Employee that should receive a deposit to their rapid! PayCard.
    Note: To be on the list, the employee will need to be configured for rapid! PayCard and they must be processed for payroll. 

  5. Click Finish.

    Supplier Configuration - can we update the headings of ConfigOptionType 'Supplier' to be 'EmployerSettings' for clarity.

    Employee Bank Setup - Step 4:
    If the Add button is NOT clicked and you receive the error from the screenshot, you no longer need to delete the Bank record. You simply need to click the "Add" button to register the card if you did not do it initially.
