Early Pay Discounts: Before and After Invoice Approval

This guide shows the basics of configuring your Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP) so that you can opt in to After Invoice Approval with your Coupa customers. Your customer can enroll you in both Before and After Invoice Approval discounts. 

To enable Before Invoice Approval, including information on registering as a new supplier on the CSP, see Early Pay Discounts User Guide: Before Invoice Approval for Suppliers.

How it works

If your Coupa customer wants to use Early Pay Discounts with you, they can enroll you in an After Invoice Approval early payment program in their Coupa instance, which sends you a notification that you've been enrolled. This allows you to offer your customer discounts on eligible approved invoices in exchange for them paying the invoice sooner than it is due, increasing the amount of working capital that you have at your disposal.

Once you've been enrolled in the After Invoice Approval discount program, you can start sending early payment requests to the customer who enrolled you. If you want to automate the sending of early payment requests, you can enable the Auto Discount setting.

Update early payment preferences

If you have the Admin permission, you can update your discount setting directly from the Early Payments user interface:

Customer Supplier Portal Admin settings: Edit after invoice approval customer

  1. Go to Payments > Early Payments.
  2. Select Enable Auto Discount.
  3. All future approved invoices will be automatically submitted for discounting.
