Payment On Invoice and Payment In Advance

Wirecard TecDoc edited this page Aug 7, 2019 · 1 revision

Payment On Invoice

With Payment On Invoice, payment is made on receipt of goods or services. An invoice is either delivered with the ordered items or emailed to the consumer immediately after order placement, or both. Payment terms (e.g. merchant's IBAN/BIC, due date) are usually stated on the invoice.

Payment In Advance

With Payment In Advance, the consumer places an order and pays after receiving the merchant's payment details (IBAN/BIC, due date). When the transaction is completed the merchant delivers the goods or services. The purchase is balanced with the delivery.

The decision whether a merchant should wait for the payment, or deliver goods/services immediately, is subject to the merchant's payment method logic. It is not relevant for the Wirecard system; the payment processing logic is identical for both cases.
