Supplier payments

Supplier payments feature allows you to manage and track the process of paying your suppliers. Once you have set up the payment terms for suppliers, you can keep track of payment details for all confirmed bookings for each itinerary and you can modify/change the payment details for supplier payments in the itinerary.

Booking items will only appear in the Payments>Supplier Payments subtab for Suppliers with active Payment terms or for Items with confirmed Booking status assigned. Payment Terms help file is here.
