To achieve this you have to create/maintain one additional supplier as Credit Card Company XYZ, who would be regarded as Payee. (XYZ represents the ID of the Credit Card Company).

Payee is the person to whom money is paid or due.

In order to  activate this Payee as a Credit Card for your desired supplier ABC, you have to go to the Supplier Master (other than the Credit Card) data and make these settings:  (ABC represents the Supplier ID)

  1. Go to the Contact tab of the Supplier Master Data ABC.
  2. Select the Relationship sub tab.
  3. Click on Add Row and define the Relationship Type as Has the Payee.
  4. Define the Business Partner as your Credit Card Company XYZ.
  5. Save and Close the screen.

You have to maintain the above steps for each Supplier for which you want to make a Credit Card Payment.

After the Payee setting is done in the Supplier Master data, whenever you create an invoice to the main Supplier ABC, the Payee would be by default the Credit Card Supplier XYZ.

The system will use as Payment Beneficiary the Credit Card Supplier XYZ not the actual Supplier ABC.


Please note the following:

The Payment Monitor will show the Supplier Invoice as Open Item for the actual Supplier and not for the Credit Card Supplier XYZ. But whenever you create an Outgoing Check/Bank Transfer against those Supplier Invoices the Payment will be made to the Payee (Credit Card Supplier XYZ). Once the Payment is made to Payee (i.e Credit Card Supplier XYZ) system will clear all Open Items (Supplier Invoices) from the actual Supplier ABC. You can view the Supplier Account Monitor and find that system automatically clear this open item (Invoice).
