Sender Reference Setup - the text displayed regarding the vendors's payment on the bank statement. When you import the bank account statement, the sender reference will be used to identify the correct vendor, in order to complete settlement and update the payment.

With Payment Management, it is recommended that you enter a sender reference directly on the bank account, instead of on the individual creditor. When you enter the sender reference in the bank account, Payment Management will automatically generate a unique payment reference number for each payment (UPR number). The sender reference on the bank account always overwrites the sender reference on the individual creditor.
