Account Inquiry Help - Payables


Make a Payment

  • Upon selecting Make a Payment from the Account - Payable menu, you will first view a page that allows you to decide which Sub-Account(s) your payment will apply to. You may choose all accounts, an individual account, or a selection of multiple accounts.

  • The second step lets you narrow down your invoices for selection (shown below). Choose to set up your payment based on: invoice date, ship date, the most recent statement, or show all unpaid invoices and select the ones you want to pay. Additionally, you can pay a flat amount, which will require you to provide written instructions for your representative, describing how you'd like the amount to be used.

  • During the third step, select the invoice(s) you'd like to pay (example shown below). Your selection from the previous step will determine what invoices appear on this screen. Additional features of this step include the option to dispute invoices and options to sort the list by Sub-Account, Invoice Number, Due Date, Date Entered, PO/Job Name, and Total Amount.
  • How to Pay Online: Choose Invoices
  • If you've chosen to "Pay a Flat Amount" (see below), the third step will not display a listing of invoices but, rather, prompt you for your name, phone number, and your instructions on how the payment should be applied.
  • Remember: since the Flat Amount option requires your Elliott representative to manually apply the payment during normal business hours, the primary payment methods (i.e., selecting the invoice(s) online) will typically process the payment faster than 'Flat Amount' payments.
  • How to pay online with Flat Amounts
  • The fourth step lets you choose a payment type—either ACH Bank Transfer or Credit Card. ACH Bank Transfers are quick and secure and may be used with any Checking or Savings account. The ACH service is provided free of charge. Credit card and debit card payments require a total of at least $5.00. Card payments also require a convenience charge, which varies according to the card type: 4% of the total for American Express, and 2% of the total for Visa, MasterCard, and others.
  • During this same step, enter your payment information during the. ACH Transfers will prompt you for your checking or savings account information. Likewise, credit or debit card payments will ask for your billing and card information.
  • The final step of the payment process lets you review your payment details and confirm the payment's submission. Once the payment is submitted you will receive confirmation via email. You will receive one confirmation email for credit card payments, and two will be sent for ACH Transfers—the first upon initiating the payment, and the second upon submitting the payment to the bank.

  • Payments (History)

  • How to Search Payment History / Past Payments
  • The Payments page lists your most recent payments, which can each be selected and viewed in detail, showing which invoice(s) the payment was applied to. Click the Search button at the top-right of the recent payments list to perform a search of all your past payments. The search bar will appear at the top of the page. It allows you to search your payment history by date range (i.e., payment dates), invoice date or number, PO/Job Name, Check Number, last four digits of the credit card used, or pending online payments. The default search method is by date range, but this can be switched to any of the other methods by using the drop-down menu to the left of the search box that appears. When you change search methods, the entry box will change accordingly.

  • Reconcile Statements

  • The Reconcile Statements section is a series of three pages that allow you to upload the invoice information that you received and compare it to what we have on file for your account. This allows you to verify that you have received all of the invoices for the given statement period and that the invoice totals match.
  • Step 1 of the Statement Reconciliation Process

  • The final step will tell you if the invoices reconcile successfully. If differences are found, the page will list them (detailing, for example, which invoices are missing, or which totals do not match).
