Global Client Solutions (GCS) is a payment gateway that links ForthCRM to merchant processors.
- Accepts ACH Debit, ACH Credit/Fees, and Settlement Payment transaction types.
- The ability to manually Clear payments is not currently supported in the GCS integration.
- GCS uses Policy Groups to determine how to split fees. These are created in GCS and cannot be changed from within the Forth interface. A Policy Group must be defined before enrollment with GCS.
- Requires a signed GCS DAA (Dedicated Account Agreement) to be uploaded before enrolling a contact.
Once a signed GCS Agreement is uploaded to the Docs tab within the Client Dashboard, and the contact becomes enrolled, a consumer record is created in the GCS system. Payments are NOT pre-scheduled in GCS, instead, they are transmitted on the process date.
GCS processes payments in batches, on the day they are scheduled. Transactions are updated to Cleared or Returned if indicated by GCS.
