Default payment method for suppliers

It would be great if we could have a default payment method option. It's currently forced to cheque. I remember them, they were around about 10 years ago.. Even better if we could set it per supplier

    Yes this would be good but until it is available.... I have used the Supplier Type and I have them set with Bank, Credit Card, BPAY and Online. I have reports memorised for each category and then I run each report when needed and pay bills by selecting each from the list and then make payment accordingly.
    I also have several different Supplier Remittances saved, only hassle is that I have to go into administrator mode to change the details on the email that sends the remittance, however this is not really painful when I am paying over 40 from each category each month. Well worth the effort and saves me heaps of time.

    I change the email remittance for credit card payments because I advise the supplier to charge our credit card and the details are included in the attachment. Credit card details are added to remittance as a note.

    Unfortunately, a default Remittance Advice can only be generated for Bank Account payments.

    As a workaround, customise a Supplier Balance Detail report to just this specific Supplier for the relevant dates/date range. The benefit of creating your own remittance like this is that you can choose what info you want to show by adding/removing columns as applicable (under Modify Report at the top LHS) eg Memo (Description), PO No. etc :

    💡 If you Memorise this in your Memorised Reports List under Suppliers, you can generate it any time for any A/P Supplier payments 😊

    Thanks for that.

    On this report the payment by CC does not show.

    I have added the column Payment Method, this has no effect.

    The date of report is correct, this report only reflects the Bills, not any payments made

    @agofarm As shown in the screenshot above, it does reflect all Bills & Bill Payments however it is based on the Accounts Payable account so - just like the default system-generated "Remittance Advice" - it will only reflect Bill payments not any payments entered directly (eg via Write Cheque or Enter Credit Card Charges)

    Did you enter the payment as a stand-alone Enter Credit Card Charges transaction or did you go to the Pay Bills window & pay a Bill, selecting your Credit Card ?

    Also, check the Filters tab (under Modify Report on top LHS) to ensure you've not got it set to only specific Transaction Types:

    This is just the Supplier Balance Detail report (under the Reports dropdown menu > Suppliers & Payables) which has been modified by clicking on the Modify Report option at the top LHS in the report.
