Routable does not support making partial payments at this time, however we have a workaround to suggest for the time being.

In your Routable account, you can either create or import multiple copies of the original bill or invoice for the different payment amounts.

Creating split payments for payables

  • Create a new payable by heading to New > Payment

  • Enter payment details for your vendor who is receiving the payable.

  • In section 3️⃣What for and under the Bill No. field, you may modify the bill numbers to be something like 12345a, 12345b, 12345c etc. (📸Screenshot)

  • Enter the payment details, confirm the details and click the Send payment button.

  • On the confirmation page, click Create a new payable button to create another bill.

  • Repeat the process until you have created all payables for the total bill amount. (📸Screenshot)

Creating split payments for receivables

  • Create a new receivable by heading to New > Request

  • Enter payment details for your customer who is receiving the receivable.

  • In section 3️⃣What for and under the Message on invoice field, you may modify the invoice numbers to be something like 12345a, 12345b, 12345c etc. (📸Screenshot)

  • Enter the request details, confirm the details then click the Send invoice button.

  • On the confirmation page, click Create a new receivable button to create another bill.

  • Repeat the process until you have created all receivables for the total invoice amount. (📸Screenshot)

Creating split payments in your accounting software (QBO | Xero | Oracle NetSuite)

In your accounting software, create multiple copies of the original bill or invoice for the different payment amounts and then import them into Routable. You might also modify the bill numbers to be something like 12345a, 12345b, 12345c etc.

  • Head to New > Payment to create a payable or New > Request to create a receivable.

  • In 1️⃣Pay to/Invoice to, search for the company you want to send the payment to.

  • In 2️⃣What for, select the bill or invoice that you want to import and make a payment to. (📸Screenshot)

  • Then, add the payment details in 3️⃣Payment or Request details.

  • Confirm the details and then click Send payment or Send invoice to make a payment.

  • Repeat the process until you have completed paying the total amount of the original bill or invoice. 💪
