The payment request functionality was created to facilitate the allocation of payments within ADempiere. This functionality is mainly used with invoices but it may also be used use to allocate payments related to stages of projects or accounting entries such as remuneration (payroll).


Payment Requests are divided into three groups (types of request): from invoices, accounting and projects. Therefore the payment request is intended to facilitate the work in these 3 areas:

1. From invoices: suppose you want to pay several invoices from different suppliers (or same supplier) and you want to make a single payment and send it to the Bank. So the Bank pay these suppliers. This could be done without payment request, but that would take a lot of time to generate the payment (with the correct amount) and then correctly allocate to all invoices (one by one), so it is in this context where this functionality is helpful.

2. From accounting: suppose that you have 20 employees who want a pre-paid in the middle of the month, So you prepare a posting entry to match the accounts, but after that you must generate the payments and assign the corresponding charge. Here again, the payment request is very useful since it directly reads the account posting and generates as many payments as lines found in the GL journal (only GL journal lines with business partners), then before you complete the payment request you can select which lines you want to generate a payment and which lines not. Unlike of the “from invoices” where only one payment is generated here ADempiere generate as many payments as lines found in the payment request.

3. From project, assume that you are running or managing a project and it has several payment associated to a milestone, and you want to generate payments related to each milestone. The payment request generate payment very quickly related to the milestone.
