Zoho Books handles things a little differently than some of the other cloud accounting apps out there, when it comes to Accounts Payable. We saw this in Accounts Receivable, but I hadn’t pointed it out.
Each area stands on its own. To enter a bill, you go into the purchases area, then click on Bills. When you want to make a payment, it will be tempting to go back into this area, but there is no vendor payment option here. Under the same Purchases menu, you will find, “Vendor Payments Made.” This area shows a list of payments, and you can enter a new vendor payment from here. You can use this, or the plus sign at the top (show in the video) to create a new vendor payment transaction.
Other than the nuances of where to click to enter and pay bills, the process is the same. Enter a bill, increase Accounts Payable.
