Separating bill payments to the same vendor

Bill payments with the same process date to the same vendor can be separated into multiple payments.

Separating payments permanantly for a specific vendor

  1. Click Vendors in the left navigation menu
  2. Click the vendor's name
  3. Click More actions
  4. Click Edit Vendor
  5. Scroll down to Additional Information section
  6. Select No for Combine Payments field
  7. Click Save

Note: This setting is not active unless the global setting under Payables preferences is set to Yes

Separating payments for a specific vendor one time only

  1. Click Bills in the left navigation menu
  2. Review & pay for one of the bills for the vendor
  3. Click Pay
  4. Repeat for each bill from the same vendor

The vendor will receive a separate payment and confirmation email for each bill, even if the process date is the same for all payments being issued. There will be a charge for each payment.

Things to know

  • Choose to combine or separate bill payments for all vendors (Payables Preferences), an individual vendor (vendor page), or an individual payment (when you pay bills)
  • If a combined payment is already scheduled, but should be separated into individual payments, the payment will need to be canceled or voided, then re-schedule to pay the bills separately
