Defining Alternate Payment Addresses

When paying your vendors, the vendor address and company address might be used in the payment information. If the address includes special characters this can cause errors when processing foreign payments in the bank. To avoid these issues, while maintaining the correct vendor or company address, you can define an alternative address which will be used for payment purpose only.

Note

If an alternate information is defined on the company setup or on the vendor card, then the information will per default be used for payments instead of the primary information. This counts for each individual field. I.e. if only one field is filled in on the alternate address on the company information - this could be City - then this will be used instead of the city defined under the FastTab General. However, the rest of the address information used for payments will still come from the information defined under the FastTab General.

To define an alternate company payment address

  1. Use the Search for page or report icon and search for Company Information, then select the related link. This opens the company information setup page.
  2. On the Company Information Setup page, on the Alternate Payment Address FastTab, type in the alternate address information containing no special characters.

To define an alternate vendor payment address

  1. Use the Search for page or report icon and search for Vendors, then select the related link.
  2. On the list of vendors, open the vendor card for whom an alternate address must be created.
  3. On the vendor card, on the Alternate Vendor Information FastTab, type in the alternate vendor information containing no special characters.
