The payment method determines how payments are to be made, e.g. by check, bank transfer or bill of exchange.
Payment methods are entered in the master records of customers and vendors in order to specify how payments are made. If an open item is to be paid using a specific payment method, enter it in the open item. The terms which have been defined for the payment method must be satisfied for the payment.
Payment methods are to be defined in the Financial Accounting configuration menu, where the following steps are to be carried out:
- First of all, make all specifications that are required for a country-specific payment method.
- Then define per company code the terms under which a payment method can be used.
All payment methods are displayed in the customer or vendor master record in the screen for selecting the payment method. Here you select the required payment method by marking it; the system transfers the payment methods to the customer/vendor master record.

You define payment methods in the Finanacial Accounting configuration menu, where you make the following steps:
- First make all the country-dependent specifications that are necessary for each payment method.
- Then define for each company code the conditions under which the payment method can be used.
The screen for selecting a payment method for each customer or vendor master record contains all defined payment methods. Here you select the payment method you require by clicking on it. The system then copies this payment method into the appropriate customer/vendor master record.
If, at a later date, a different payment terms key is entered in the line item, this supersedes the payment method entered in the master record.
