Incorrect matching gift recognition credits populated when payment is made by third party

When a matching gift is paid by a third party, recognition credit for the original company are dropped. For example, a donor who works for a Corporation makes a donation and enters a pending match. The corporation and the donor get recognition credit for the matching gift claim. Then, the claim is paid by a third party fund, recognition credit on the PAYMENT is only given to the donor and the third party, however the constituents corporation is dropped.
It is not currently possible to add both a third party payment service as well as the original matching gift claim without overriding the initial recognition credit. Here is an Idea Bank Suggestion for this functionality:

It may be possible to add this functionality via a customization.  If this is something you are interested in, please follow-up with your Account Executive for more information.
