KWAR Quick Setup Guide:
STEP 1 - Sign up for AccountEdge Connect account and personalize your settings. You must use your firstname.lastname@example.org email account. This will tell AE that you are a KW MCA and will then set your account up with KW specific items.
STEP 2 - If you do not currently have a merchant account, sign up at AccountEdge Merchant Account.
STEP 3 - Clean up Customer Card File & Item List in AccountEdge & Set up your settings in AccountEdge Connect.
- Clean up customer card files in AccountEdge
- Inactivate cards of agents no longer with your MC
- Change Vendor cards to ‘Vendor’ instead of Customer
- Verify agents email address in their customer card
- In Selling Details tab, select invoice delivery as email
- Clean Up Item list in Accountedge
- Inactivate items that are no longer used
STEP 4 – Sort & Group your KWAR spreadsheet into billing types. If you are familiar with a Venn diagram, this is what you’re doing. For example, group A will be agents who are billed the associate tech fee only. Group B will be agents with the associate tech fee and copies, Group C will be the associate tech fee, copies, rent. Etc. Continue this until all agents have been assigned a group
STEP 5 - Create Billing Schedule, Add Invoice, and Approve and Email Invoices. In this step you will create an invoice template for Group A, B, C etc, copy to all agents in the group and email invoices to your agents.
STEP 6 – On your market centers scheduled date, you will now Process Payments and manage declined cards.
PRO TIP: SYNC AccountEdge to AEConnect daily. This will keep your AR records up to date and reflect a reduced Accounts Receivable balance on your Balance Sheet. Syncing should be done while your desktop version is in SINGLE USER MODE.
