Use this procedure to create vendor invoices, generate vendor payments, and transfer the vendor payments electronically. You can create a payment proposal and generate a payment file that is to be sent to the bank for approval by using the bank's software. After the bank receives the file, the bank will pay the specified invoices and charge your account. The bank sends a return file and indicates whether a payment line is approved or rejected. You can then import the returned file and verify the payment file details. You can also modify the details in the payment file, and then resend the file to the bank for approval.

You can create a separate journal with a corresponding number series for payment proposals, and then create another journal with a different voucher number series for importing and posting payments. These voucher number series should be different from other voucher number series. In certain cases, a vendor might owe you money, or you might owe money to a customer. If a vendor owes you money, you can use the OCR import file format for vendors to generate the payment file.
