Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Receivable work center.
  2. Click Customer Accounts view.
  3. Select the Customer account and Click View.
  4. Select the open document ABC and click Item Details.
  5. Here, you have maintained Payment Block Reason and ticked Payment Block. 
  6. Go to Customer Accounts view and select the open Invoice ABC.
  7. Click Pay Manually By - Outgoing Bank Transfer. 
  8. You will be navigated to Outgoing Bank Transfer screen and you see the warning message - Invoice ABC blocked for payments.
  9. Maintain all the details and Post the payment. 
  10. The Payment is posted successfully.


Basically, the Payment Block option is used, when you do not want the system to capture Invoice in the automatic Payment (Payment Run). If you create a Manual Payment, then the system shows only warning message instead of error and allow you to post the payment. The Payment Block option does not work for Manual Payment.
