Would love to have the option on a vendor to post a "memo" payment. In other words, if we pay an invoice by credit card and then reimburse the credit card holder, the particular vendor payment doesn't show up under the vendor info, so we can only trace it through the GL account or through the hardcopy in the vendor's file. If there was a way to post it as a memo only, we could pull up a vendor and see how much was paid and when.

I love this idea.  I have frequently had to go pull stacks of credit card statements to find this information.  This would help so much.

I like this idea also.  We use a lot of small vendors who are sole proprietors.  We sometimes pay by check and sometimes staff members charge to their credit cards. At year end, preparing 1099s becomes a real headache.

It would be awesome in the future if there was a way to tag vendors when paying the credit card bill so that payments made to them via the credit card would show up in their vendor history.....

After thinking about how this could look, I think that it would work great if we keyed in the receipts individually like invoices tied to the vendor.  This would make each of them searchable and tie it to the vendor for 1099 purposes as well.  (see feed comments in In AP, want to be able to set up a vendor as a "credit card vendor)  Then we could have a check box or a radial button that could be chosen when it is a credit card charge rather than the standard direct payment to the vendor.  Then, when the bill comes in, it would simply be a matter of choosing the specific invoice that needed to be paid on that bill.  Then on the create checks page, there could also be a check box or radial button that toggles between checks and credit card so the credit card invoices are not shown when the regular check runs are being processed.  This would keep the integrity of what the users already see, and give the feature as well.  (I know the programming is a different story. But from the user angle, I think this could work for many of us based on what I would use as well as others issues that are posted here.)

We import our credit card transactions into ACS general ledger.  The vendor name is one of the import fields.  It would be very helpful to us to be able to tag vendors for Form 1099 purposes.

What is the status or advice on this process. The vendor name that I have to use to pay my credit card bill does not help me when tracking payments to a particular vendor. Is there a solution or import setup that mitigates this problem?

Hi Sarah,

Our developers reviewed this request in the latter part of 2018 and the decision was made then that we would not be able to add this request as it is a larger request. We did mark the request as Not Planned and I apologize that we didn't add a comment at that time. I'm sorry I don't have a better answer.
