Last updated on JUNE 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Payments - Version 12.0.6 and later
Oracle Receivables
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle Applications Release 12


Note: This document is for customers NOT using real time bank account processing by integrating with a backend payment system. Setups in the document can be used to process dummy authorization and settlement requests in order to successfully create and remit bank account receipts.

11i Oracle iPayment is replaced with a brand new product called Oracle Payments in Release 12. This new product has extended functionality for funds capture (inbound payments) and funds disbursement (outbound payments) processing. In Release 12, both Oracle Receivables and Payables have dependency on Oracle Payments implementation. For funds capture processing, minimum implementation of Oracle Payments is mandatory even if realtime payment processing functionality is not used. If real time payment processing functionality is used, extensive setups as outlined in Oracle Payments implementation guide are needed. This note will document the setup's needed in Oracle Payments for merchants implementing Receivables (funds capture) without using real time payment processing. If these setups are not performed, receipt and remittance batches will fail with error "INVALID_PAYEE: Invalid payee identifier".


Existing 11i customer had the ability to configure receipt class/method in such a way that realtime payment processing can be turned off. This was done by setting payment type and merchant_ref to null. In Release 12, merchant_ref was obsoleted and replaced with Payment Method, created in Oracle Payments. This payment method is mandatory and for merchants upgrading from 11i, it will default to 'Bank Account Transfer'. Therefore merchants upgrading to Release 12 will need to perform following dummy setups in Payments to successfully process receipt and remittance batches.
