Creating SEPA targets

To be able execute SEPA direct debit runs or import CAMT files, you need to first define at least one SEPA target. Targets include a range of information, so we recommend collecting the required information before you get going with the target creation. Before you can create a target, please make sure to get the following information from the organization. This article outlines creating generic SEPA targets. For SEDA (Italy) targets, please see SEDA for SEPA payment extension.

SEPA target details

To make creating targets easier, we recommend gathering the required details before you start creating targets. The following table includes all the settings for a generic SEPA target.

SettingDescription
NameThe name of the target should be something that is recognizable within your organization. This name is not shown outside of your organization, but it is used to distinguish easily among different accounts.
TargetThe payment extension to be used with this target. For SEPA targets, select ‘PaymentHub SEPA.’
TypeThis is the SEPA implementation to be used with this target. The type affects which settings are needed for the target. SEPA is for generic SEPA bank accounts, and SEDA is for Italian SEPA bank accounts.
Associate charges toSome banks include charges within transactions, especially with direct debit reversals. These charges are stored automatically and matched against a particular account in Salesforce. Either select or create a relevant Salesforce account record to store these charges. Enter the Salesforce Id of the account you selected. You can find the Salesforce Id from your browser navigation bar. Salesforce account Id
Bank account additionThis is the BIC or CODA number of the bank handling the SEPA transactions for this target. Example: INGBNL2A
Bank account numberThis is IBAN for your target that will be used for SEPA transactions.
Bank identification numberThe Generic Account Identification number for alternative bank detection. This is used, for instance, when you have a special contract with your bank.
CAMT message typeFor each target, you need to define whether it will be used for importing CAMT.053 or CAMT.054 files. Currently it is not possible to process both CAMT.053 and CAMT.054 bank statements for the same target. However, the data created in Salesforce when processing CAMT.054 is equal to CAMT.053.
CBI Clearing System Member IdAn unique identifier of your organization and uniquely identifies your relationship with CBI Bank.

Creditor IDThis is the SEPA Creditor ID provided by your bank when you made the direct debit contract.
CAMT duplication protectionPrevent duplicate CAMT files from processing (yes/no)
GroupHeader - Initiating Party - OrgIdSome banks may have additional requirements for SEPA transactions. To comply with these requirements, you can fill in the Initiating Party details. One option is: GroupHeader – Initiating Party – OrgId (text field). The other option is: GroupHeader – Initiating Party – SchemeName (picklist ‘CORE’ | ‘CUST’) If these fields are used, the values are added to the SEPA transactions accordingly.
PAIN file validationWhen enabled, PAIN files are validated after generation and before uploading to Chatter. Validation of files with a large number of transactions may take a while.
PAIN.008 - CBIWhen enabled, PAIN.008 files are generated according to CBI standards.
Maximum records per fileYour bank may impose limits such as the maximum number of transactions per PAIN file. These are usually included in the contract with your bank. If such a limit exists, enter the value here. Otherwise, leave as is.
Maximum records per sequence typeYour bank may impose limits on the maximum number of records per sequence type. These are usually included in the contract with your bank. If such a limit exists, enter the value here. Otherwise, leave as is.
GroupHeader - Initiating Party - SchemeName(See above, GroupHeader - Initiating Party - OrgId)
