Whichever account you select the specific amounts on, you must apply 'Accept' to the other account, so that the remaining values can be split correctly. Like so:
Once you are happy click on Apply and Save the Transaction Plan.
Transaction plan use in bookings
When coming to the Invoicing tab, the first task to set is the invoice Transaction Plan.
The Transaction Plan determines how many Payment Accounts will be added to the booking, and what charges those payment accounts will be invoiced for.
Each plan should be designed to be self-explanatory for quick reference.
Examples of transaction plans here would be ‘Guest to Pay’, where Guests will be invoiced for everything and be responsible for that one account.
Another option would be ‘Rate Plan to Company. This option would require 2 accounts where the Rate Plan / Accommodation charges are being paid for by a company and any upsell items to be invoiced to the guest direct.
