View and Manage Early Payments
View and manage your early payments to incentivize yours customers to pay early for discounts.
Early Payment Requests help you get paid earlier by allowing you to offer your customers discounts on their invoices if they pay them early. You choose the discount percentage you offer your customer for eligible approved invoices, which lets them decide whether they want to pay early to receive the discount. By incentivizing customers to pay early for discounts, you increase your working capital by receiving payments early.
Your Coupa customer has to enroll you in their Discounting program for you to use early payment requests successfully. For more information, see Set Early Payment Discounting Preferences.
