When payables are in a Pending status, this normally means that a payment method, either bank account details or a check address, needs to be added for your vendor before the payment can be processed and initiated.

If you prefer not to wait for your vendor to take action on a Pending payment, and you already have their payment method information handy, you can easily initiate any Pending payments to your vendors with a few simple steps.

Initiating Pending ACH payments

  • In Routable, navigate to your vendor's company page and click the Vendor info tab.
  • Click the Add bank account button and fill in the bank account details in the right side panel.
  • Then, click the Advanced options toggle and select the box Update Pending payables with no payment method, and initiate payment.
  • Confirm the bank account details then click Add bank account.
  • A toast notification will appear confirming that the Vendor bank account added successfully! 🎉
  • ⭐️ Note: This same process works if the bank account already exists for your vendor. You can go ahead and add it again — it won’t give you an error — and then follow the same steps above.

Initiating Pending check payments

  • In Routable, navigate to your vendor's company page and click the Vendor info tab.
  • Click the Add address button and fill in the address details in the right side panel.
  • Then, click the Advanced options toggle and select the box Update Pending payables with no payment method, and initiate payment.
  • Confirm the address details then click Add address.
  • A toast notification will appear confirming that the Vendor address added successfully! 🎉
  • ⭐️ Note: This same process works if the mailing address already exists for your vendor. You can go ahead and add it again — it won’t give you an error — and then follow the same steps above.
