Create Payments

The Advanced AR Settlement feature is in Limited Availability. This feature includes Unapplied Payments, Credit and Debit Memo, and Invoice Item Settlement. If you wish to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support

You can create a payment in the following scenarios:

  • A full or partial payment on an invoice or debit memo
  • A full or partial payment on several invoices and debit memos
  • An unapplied payment

After creating a payment on an invoice and debit memo, the related payment transactions are displayed on the invoice or debit memo detail page. You can find payment details about the invoice and debit memo on this page.

Zuora provides you two ways to create a payment: external payment and electronic payment.
