To provide Procore users with information about subcontractor payment applications in Procore.
The Payment application Management solution features the Project level Payment applications tool. This tool handles two types of payment applications: subcontractor payment applications and main contract payment applications. Subcontractor payment applications originate in the project's Commitments tool. Before you can create a payment application, your project team must create a commitment for the project, establish a billing period and decide who will have permission to submit a payment application.
This diagram summarises subcontractor payment application creation.

|Configure the Payment application Management tools||Configure the payment applications settings in the Commitments and Payment applications tools. See Configure Settings: Commitments and Configure Settings: Payment applications.||Commitments and Payment applications|
|Establish a billing period||Create a billing period and place it in the Open status. A billing period defines the start, end and due date for submitting a payment application.||Manage Billing Periods|
|Create a commitment||Subcontractor payment applications originate from commitments. You can create multiple commitments for your collaborators in a Procore project. A commitment must be in the 'Approved' status before you can create a payment application.||Create a Commitment|
