Allocate Customer Payment Using the Fast Allocation

This instruction explains how you easily mass-allocate customer payments. This is a convenient method when a customer generates a high number of customer payments.

Instead of manually allocating each payment to an invoice record, the total amount received is automatically allocated to the invoice records listed in accounts receivables until the amount to distribute is zero.
