Business partners have now been selected for the payment run, but we have not defined what types of documents will be included for these vendors.

You can create a selection priority based on due date, posting date, cash discount or pay-to details.

Payment Method

Based on the data provided in the previous parameters it provides the selection for the payment method.

Because we have selected outgoing check, and the types of business partners, it has selected the “out chk” payment method for this payment run.

Clicking the box on the left selects this payment run.

It is important to confirm the max out going amount or it will not allow to process the pay run.

Based on the criteria provided, the wizard generates a list of recommended payments.

In this case this has generated a list of 4 payments for vendors, and a total amount of ~$95k. This also contains information regarding the GL account, the check amount, if there are multiple checks based on business partner master data, and the notes for the outgoing payment.

You have the option to remove lines, or add manual lines at this stage.

You now have the option to save the payment run, save the recommendations, execute a payment order, or execute an actual payment run.

The wizard will confirm that it has executed the payment run successfully.


The summary notes what types of documents were created. In this specific run there was a payment and a check created.

This gives us the option to print a check as stated on the right hand side. If the check checkbox isn’t shown this is due to no checks being created in the payment run.

You can print the checks directly from this screen.

Payment Methods

It is important to have both check and bank transfer payment methods setup prior to the payment runs.

This will allow the payment run to create the correct documents in SAP Business One based on the selection criteria.

Based on the payment run for the business partner, this will change how the payment wizard selects the payments for a business partner.

It is important that this information is created and the default is setup for a specific business partner.
