    Arrow Make Payment

    (This subject has been discussed before in other threads. But I want to start a new thread to avoid clutter.)

    Your Money - No Simple Rules On Deferments - NYTimes.com

    "Someone who gave a check back to the company or person making payment, asking them to hold onto it until 1989, would be held to be in constructive receipt."

    So "make payment" is idiomatic after all?

    Default Re: Make Payment

    I wouldn't use it- I'd make a payment in the first and paying out in the second, but it may be used in AmE.
