Is it possible to update the standard SF picklist within the Payment Information portlet for payType to only reflect Main Payment Method and Payroll?

For MDF-based Payment Information, the Employee Central system sends the Pay Type and the Payment Method to SAP ERP HCM. The Payment Type Code (Subtype of infotype 0009) is derived depending on the Pay Type. The value of Payment Method is always used directly for Payment Form Code.

As per the default structure of the SucessFactors system , we will not be able to edit/update this field. But you can utilize the field "Customized Pay Type" to create custom pay types and use as per your requirement.
