Set Up Non Fixed Virtual Accounts for Xendit Invoices
Non Fixed Virtual Accounts will always be linked to an invoice. When an invoice is created, Non Fixed Virtual Accounts will automatically be created. Xendit directly provides Non Fixed Virtual Accounts from Mandiri and BRI. We can also help the integration of Non Fixed Virtual Accounts from BCA and BRI. However, this requires an additional forms to be filled as we have to register our customers as merchants to the bank.
Set Up Non Fixed Virtual Accounts Range for Invoices
Setting up Non Fixed Virtual Accounts ranges needs to be done before creating the invoices. This can be done directly in the Xendit Dashboard. Once the ranges are activated, the available banks will directly appear in the invoices created.
Set Up Callback URLs for Invoices
Xendit sends automatic callbacks upon successful payments. In order to receive the callbacks from us, Callback URLs need to be set from the Xendit Dashboard. Find out how to set up here.
Once the Callback URLs have been configured, callbacks can directly be tested if your server can receive our callbacks. Payment simulation of a paid invoice can also be done to really receive our callbacks by creating an invoice with a magic amount of IDR 3,000,000.
How Invoices Work
After the invoices has been configured and integrated, it can be created or will be automatically generated once the end customers reach the checkout page. The end customer can pay the invoice by choosing the payment options and following the given payment instructions.
Invoice Process with Xendit
Once the payment has been successfully completed, Xendit detects the incoming payment and sends the callback. The incoming funds will show up in the Xendit Dashboard as a balance in the Cash Account, and the invoice status in the Invoice Tab will also be completed.
Flow of Funds Received
One invoice can have multiple payment channels, yet the the funds received from all payment channels will be in the balance in Cash.
Once the funds are in the Cash Account, it can directly be withdrawn to any bank accounts in Indonesia at any time without fees and limitations.
Invoice Callback and Email Notifications
To receive our callbacks, please ensure that the Callback URLs for Invoices has been set. If merchants choose to send the customer an email during the invoice creation, the customer will receive an email when:
- Customer received the invoice
- The payment has been successful
- The invoice is expired
When to Use Invoices
Invoices are useful to bill your customers for one time payments, subscriptions, or something in between. Xendit invoices can be used as traditional invoices or as a checkout page for eCommerce businesses.
Creating an invoice automatically creates a Non-Fixed Virtual Account and ties it to that invoice. Fixed Virtual Accounts can be used without an invoice (learn more about Virtual Accounts here). Xendit allows customers to utilize Xendit Invoices as required by their business purposes.
Make an invoice when:
