What is Transaction Manager and Payment Application Logic(charges, payments, cancellations, refunds,credits)
CRMbill Transaction Manager is just like a bank statement and formats it in such a way. Administrator has control over each transaction and can manage them individually. Each single invoice item is a Debit transaction and a single payment which is applied against many open invoices is also a single Credit Transaction.
What is the refund processing system?
From Admin Portal you have full control you each Invoice. A single invoice can have multiple invoice items. You can CANCEL/REFUND any invoice. There are different levels of access allowing REFUND only to certain Administrator Level to keep tight control over REFUNDS. In case the Invoice is REFUNDED, CRMbill logs a Ticket in Help Desk for the Account Manager of your company to perform a actual refund. This is implemented to tightly control Refund process.

You can control if you want to allow your customers to submit cancellation from their client portal or not. This is very useful because it gives you the chance to convince your customers to stay with your services. Also you can enable/disable cancellation link per client service from admin portal.
