SAP does not support payments in advance (prepayment or down payment) for one-time-customers, without having a reference to an invoice carrying the one time customer data.


  • An incoming payment can only be posted to a GL clearing account for clearing after invoice receipt. The clearing account is similar to the bank clearing accounts for payment receipt without invoice or customer information. The account must be flagged as cash flow relevant in the master data.

  • As an alternative define a ‘dummy’ customer account for storing incoming payments from a customer without invoice reference or master data.

  • The statement is true for all Incoming/Outgoing payment related Fiori applications.

  • Use GUI app "Reprocess Bank Statement Items - FEB_BSPROC" to post bank statement items to One-time customer accounts.
