To create a Payment Media Run it is mandatory to process and finish a Payment Run in the Payables or Receivables work center first or create the respective invoice payment manually. This can be done automatically or manually.

Only then the respective payments in status Ready for Transfer and Payment Media or the files for data media exchange can be created via a Payment Media Run.

The Payment Media Run only considers payments with status Ready for Transfer which were created through the payables payment run, the receivables payment run and payments created manually from the Supplier/Customer Account Monitor or bank statement items.

The Payment Media Run then creates outgoing payment files which are to be sent to the respective bank for processing.


  1. Go to Payables work center.
  2. Go to Periodic Tasks subview and select Payment Run.
  3. Click the New button, create and execute a new Payment Run.
  4. When the Payment Run is successfully created go to Payment Management work center.
  5. Navigate to Payment Media Runs subview.
  6. Click the New button and create and execute a new Payment Run.
