Show confirmation message to recipient authorizing a payment

Post by simonjwoolf » Thu Mar 15, 2018 10:03 am

version: Cyclos 4.9.2 Pro

Use case: When a member pays another member from a designated loan account, the recipient of the payment must pay a 5% fee (this is the specification of my client, not up for discussion).

So, we enable "Requires authorization" for the transfer type so that the recipient has a chance to review the incoming payment and refuse it if they don't want to pay the fee.

However, the problem is that there doesn't seem to be any way to show the recipient a warning that a fee will be payable. They don't see the transfer type confirmation message, which is only shown to the sender.

How can we warn the recipient about this fee, and give them the option not to proceed with the authorisation if they so wish?

Must we use an extension point or is there a way to do this in a more "out of the box" fashion?

Indeed the fee information is only shown after authorization (upon payment confirmation)
It makes sense to show it also at the (pending) authorization window. We will add this and include it in the next version (4.10), which will be published next week.
