By opening a second tab Export history you can see all errors in generation or download ready XML files.

In this example we have an error:

By clicking on icon Download we can get an error description file and open it in Notepad:

In our example it says one of our customers has empty IBAN in his information tab. After fixing it and re-submitting the export we will find the correct status in Export history:

SEPA XML file is ready for downloading and sending to Bank for further processing and charging subscribers:

The line 2017-06-01 says when Bank should charge the customer. By default we put there the date of XML generation. It can be changed in XML file before sending.

4. Mark invoices as paid

5. SEPA - process the return file from bank with non-payers

Sometimes customer doesn't have funds on his bank account. In that case Bank sends you XML file back with returns. It will contain data about customers Bank was not able to charge. You can import this file to Splynx as well, and then paid invoices of non-payers will become unpaid again. So you can charge them next month and include the fee for failed charge.

The handler to choose is SEPA XML returns:
