Description

Pay Bills with manual payments, checks, or previously created Vendor Credits from here. The Bills available from this page will be limited to those with status "approved" or "partial payment". Currently, you can not group Bills together to be paid via one Payment, but you can make multiple Payments against one Bill.

Create Bill Payments


  1. Select which Payment Method (Manual, Vendor Credit, Send Check).
  2. Select which Ledger Account to use to apply funds from for the Payment (e.g. a Cash account) for one or more of the rows of Bills in the table.
  3. Enter the Amount to Pay in the corresponding row(s) for the Bills to create a refund payment for.
  4. Enter Payment and Posted Dates on the row(s) of any lines with Amount to Pay entries.
  5. Enter an optional Memo on the row(s) of any lines with Amount to Pay entries.
  6. Click the Pay button next to the Ledger Account selection at the top of the table.
  7. Confirm the payments:


Once confirmed, the amounts will be applied to the Vendor as Payments, but will need to be approved on the Cash Management>Pay Bills>Payments tab (if your settings require this).

 

Note: Add the Amount to Pay, Dates, and Memos for multiple rows at a time and Pay and Confirm rather than creating Payments row by row.

  • AutoFill Row - Click to fill the Amount to Pay field with the Amount Due, and fill the Payment and Posted Dates with the system date in the upper right corner.
  • Clear Row - Clear out any entered data in the row.

  • Filters - Filter what appears in the table based on one or more fields available in the table.
  • Saved Views - You can create a set of filters that you would like to save to be able to quickly filter a table.

Important Considerations

  • Vendor Credits need to be created prior to being applied against Bills
  • To send a check, your bank and other information needs to first be set up under Settings>Checks.
  • Checks won't be sent to Vendors at this stage, but rather when Payments are approved.
  • If you plan on using the Send Checks option, be sure that the "Auto-approve AP Payments" system setting is turned off.
