How do I add a country to the list of destination countries that international payments can be made to?


The list of destination countries allows you to set restrictions to prevent payments going to certain countries, for example countries where you have no active supplier or trading relationships.

If you have the appropriate privileges to amend payment preferences (or you're an administrator) you can follow thes steps in this video or read the instructions below:  

  1. In the 'Administration' section, select 'Customer details' (this is the first option and may already be highlighted)

  2. Select 'Payment preferences', this is the header of the middle box on the screen

  3. Under the 'Destination countries' heading, select 'View or amend destination countries'

  4. Select the countries you want to allow users to send payments to and deselect those you want to restrict

  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select 'Continue'

  6. You'll then be returned to 'Payment preferences', scroll down and select 'Confirm'
  7. Review your amendments and select 'Update'

  8. The change will then need to be approved using your smartcard and card reader, select 'authenticating the action with your Smartcard'
  9. Tick the 'Change payment preferences' and then 'Authorise selected' follow the onscreen steps using your smartcard and reader. Once authorised the country will appear in your drop down list when making an international payment

If you want to approve this later, you can complete the authorisation at another time by selecting 'Smartcard authorisation' from the 'Administration' menu.

If your organisation is using Dual Authorisation, a second authoriser will need to approve your changes.

Countries you've added or removed will be highlighted by a '#' when you come to approve the change.

For security we advise that you only add countries that you need to make payments to, if you need to make a one off payment you can add the country and then remove it.
