Once the recurring charge transaction is setup, you can initiate the charge by going to Company → Post Recurring Credit Card Charges. This screen will show all of today’s transactions that need to be posted, plus any post transactions that were never posted. This can be run multiple times per day, once a day, or as often as you’d like.
The important thing to remember here is that the credit card is charged and posted to the ledger on the day that you run the post routine, not the day that the transaction is scheduled to run. For instance, if the transaction is set to recur on the 5th day of every month, and you post on the 8th day of the month, the charge and journal entry will show on the 8th of the month. After you’re happy with the selection, simply click “Charge” and ESC will start charging the credit cards you told it to charge.
After the charges are complete you will be given an option to print all results or just the errors.
