This article is focused on an overview of the Payment Process. In other words, here is a table of transactions that will help you during customizing settings and the second table that is describing the Payment Process from processing view. In case the phrases No settings are used, it means that these transactions are optional to customized. You can skip this prerequisite or use SAP delivered functionality.

Payment Process

1A  Your company purchases some goods or services and you receive the invoice from your vendor. Enter and post your vendor/supplier invoices in, for example, the F-43 or FB60 transaction.

1B Your company sells some goods or services to your customers and you create the invoices for them in, for example, the F-22 or FB70 transaction and post them.
2 Generate a payment run using the F110 Automatic Payment Transactions.
3 Generate Payment File - you can do so in two ways

  • From Payment Run F110 transaction (note that in this case, you need to make a customizing setting in the OBPM4 transaction)

  • From the transaction FBPM (in this case, no settings are needed in the OBPM4 transaction)

4 Download the Payment File in the relevant format and submit it to your bank
