Flow of Betalingsservice using Upodi
Mandates are a digital record (agreement) between the you (the merchant) and the customer (either a consumer or a business). The mandate is what allows Upodi to act on behalf of you, the merchant, in sending (collecting) or returning funds (distribution).
A mandate can be invoked by contacting the customer bank, informing the debitor group (debitor gruppe in Danish), the customer number (9 numbers) and the bank details (registration number and Bank win number). Once recieved by the bank, the mandate will be marked for processing and Upodi will recieve all mandate changes on the account of the merchant.
**You can generate a link to invite customers here.
A mandate can be revoked by either the customer, the bank of the customer or by NETS. Various reason occur for the mandate. Each change of mandate is recorded on the customer in Upodi. A customer must have an active mandate, for payment processing to occur.
Mandates are matched between Betalingsservice and Upodi using the account number in Upodi and the account number of the mandate.
Payments are collected once every month as a deadline. Collection of payment are based on a schedule, please see https://www.betalingsservice.dk/erhverv/løsninger/tidsfrist-for-aflevering.
Upodi will collate and sample all payment ready for processing at midnight the day before the deadline. Upodi sends a summary of all invoices collated for payment via Betalingsservice to an email address of your choice.
Usually around the 11th in a month (may vary depending on Betalingsservice reponse times) Upodi sends a final overview of payments marking each payment as either success or failed and why it may have failed its payment to that same email address.
Mandates must be active, otherwise the invoice will not be included.
On the deadline of payment once every month, NETS will process each of the payment for the relevant deadline. This often occur 6-10 days before the month-end. Once the month-end has occured, a payment status file is processed by Upodi marking each of the payments and invoices with the proper payment status. Unpaid invoices or failed payments gets carried over for the following month.
