Once the Tipalti integration has been enabled, it will appear as a payment method in the Partner billing form.
You will want to make sure that Partners are unable to update their billing information in the Partner Portal. To disable this go to Control Center - Configuration > Global Settings - Edit.
To update Partner billing information, navigate to Partners - Manage > Select Partner > Edit > Billing. Since the Partner has an existing Tipalti account, turn on Use Existing Payee ID, and then enter that Payee ID from Tipalti.
When you have finished setting up their account, their status will change to payable and you will be able to pay invoices via the integration:
Partner Integration Without a Tipalti Account
For a video overview - [Click Here].
Once enabled, a Partner who is new to Tipalti and therefore doesn't already have a Payee ID, will need to add their payment information so that Everflow can generate a Payee ID that syncs up directly with their Everflow account.
You will want to make sure that Partners are unable to update their billing information in their UI. To disable this go to Control Center - Configuration > Global Settings - Edit.
To update the Partner billing information, navigate to to Partners - Manage > Select Partner > Edit > Billing. Since the Partner does not have an existing Tipalti account, turn off Use Existing Payee ID.
Please instruct your Partner to create their account using their Partner portal by navigating to Company - Settings > Billing - Edit. This is also where your Partner can check in the status of the Tipalti Integration.
If your Partner needs to update their billing information, they can click Edit Tipalti Information to fill in the form.
Once done, the Partner will need to click Back to Billing in the top-left of the screen. Everflow syncs with Tipalti every 10 minutes and will update their account status. The Partner will finally be able to receive payments when the section displays like this:
Making a Payment
