What is Payment Bulk Importing?

Bulk imports allow for substantially faster payment data imports and are excellent for importing huge amounts of data without user intervention. You'll need the following headers below in each column in your file to easily bulk import your payments data. (.csv, .tsv, .xls, .xlsx, .xml, .txt spreadsheets accepted.)

  • Partner (The freelancer's email address will be required in this area)
  • Expense name
  • Line item name
  • Line item category
  • Line item quantity
  • Line item price
  • Currency
  • Approver (the email address of your teammate who will approve the invoice)

The column headers are case sensitive, you will need to follow the exact wording and format.

You can also add custom fields to your file as column headers if they are found on your invoices.

For your convenience, we've provided an example file at the conclusion of this help article.

Historical Payments (1099 Use Case)

By default, Worksuite invoices for which our Global Pay customers processed the associated payments off-platform are included in our 1099 filings.

To file for payments made externally and which are not already represented by a Worksuite invoice, you may use the above process to upload your historical payments so they are represented by a Worksuite invoice and included in our filings.

Important Note: You will choose either New or Approved invoice status for your bulk upload. In order to be included in 1099 filings, the invoices must be marked as Paid.

Please see here for detailed information about Worksuite's 1099 filing process.
