In organizations that use centralized payment processing, each operating legal entity manages its own invoices receivable information. Payments from customers are received by a single legal entity, which is referred to as the legal entity of the payment. Use this procedure to select invoices to settle. For more information, see Key tasks: Customer payments and settlements.

  1. Click Accounts receivable > Journals > Payments > Payment journal.

  2. Create a journal and then click Lines. For information about how to create a journal, see Create and validate journals and journal lines.

    If you do not select an account type, the account type for each payment is based on the method of payment.
