A Payment Method is an indication of what was used to purchase an item. Examples of Payment Methods include Company Credit Cards, Personal Credit Cards and Petty Cash. These can be used to identify transactions paid for in a specific way.
Note: this functionality is only available for Business Plus and Premium Receipt Bank Accounts, or Streamline and Optimize partner accounts. Find out more about the different Receipt Bank products here.
You can add and manage Payment Methods from the 'Account Settings'>'Maintain Lists'>'Payment Methods' screen.
Payment Methods can also be imported from specific integrated Accounting Software. In some cases, it may be necessary to link Payment Methods to specific Bank Accounts before you can publish transactions with these payment methods.
