The payment creation under the Payroll module is almost similar to how we create a payment under the Bill payments module.
The Steps for a payment creation under Payroll module involves-
1) Adding a employee
2) Creating a payment for them
In order to add a employee, navigate to Payroll--Employees--Add employee
Once you have added an employee you can create the payment for them by navigating to Payments-- Create Payment--Select the employee for whom you want to create the payment for.
Once the payment is created, it goes through the approval process if any approval policy is created and gets credited to the employees account once it is paid from our end.
