Collection is the action of "pulling" funds from customers' bank accounts into a merchant's bank account. This is done by submitting a collection file to the merchant's bank.

Collection file (CFT) is a file that contains information about the collections to be made. It can be generated manually or automatically by merchants via the portal. It is then uploaded to the merchant bank’s folder as instructions for payment processing. Each file may contain one or more collection items.

- Standard collection. Collections to be made upon demand.

2. Auto Collection

3. Scheduled Collection
