PaymentModel

A Payment represents money sent from one company to another. A single payment may contain payments for
one or more invoices; it is also possible for payments to be made in advance of an invoice, for example,
as a deposit. The creator of the Payment is identified by the CustomerId field, and the recipient of
the Payment is identified by the CompanyId field. Most Payments are uniquely identified both by a
Lockstep Platform ID number and a customer ERP "key" that was generated by the system that originated
the Payment. Payments that have not been fully applied have a nonzero UnappliedAmount value, which
represents a deposit that has been paid and not yet applied to an Invoice.
