|German term or phrase: Abrechnungsart: verdeckt - offen|
|These are two options to select from on an on-line form. The only context I have is this: |
Wählen Sie die Abrechnungsart - verdeckt, offen - , wenn der Schadensbereich im Warenausgang liegt.
Is Abrechnungsart "method of payment" ?
What does verdeckt / offen mean in his context?
Many thanks in advance!

1. 'settlement method' or 'type settlement' is definitely correct
2. verdekt oder offen: a commonly used phrase, which literally means 'hidden or open' and can be translated as such in many contexts. Here, however, possibly 'non-itemised vs itemised' might be better.

settlement - method or type or form - concealed / hidden - visible
"Abrechnung" might be better as "settlement" because "settlement" is more general and therefore less dangerous for you.
For "Art" you could use "method or type or form".
It is difficult for me to see though what "Abrechnungsart" has to do with "verdeckt, offen". Could it be that the latter are connected with "Schaden"? If so then:
"verdeckt - offen" could be "concealed / hidden – visible"
concerning whether the damage to the insured goods could readily be seen or first became apparent later after unpacking.
