An accounts payable draft is a promise to pay a debt. Creating a draft is a multi-tier process that involves several steps.


With draft processing, a bank holds the document and releases the payment to the payee on a set date, which reduces the risk of default for both pay issuer and payee.


Note: You can also use the manual payment process to create accounts payable (AP) drafts.
