The payment with status In Preparation is proposal. You think it is not real payment and must not display in 'Cash Position by Payment Method' report.


When the payments are initiated from the payment run, a payment proposal is created and the money is allocated. This payment in the payment monitor is actually a reservation (Re-served Money) which status is In Preparation. In cash position report, the reserved money has to come under disbursements because the money is already reserved and it cannot be used by any other payments. The money is locked by the payment proposals. Thus the Cash Position report shows this information.


You can accept the payment proposals displaying in 'Cash Position by Payment Method' Report.
