POST /payments

Allows callers to register a payment.

This request is idempotent only if the payment being created and the one Invisible Collector has are the same. If they’re not a 409 CONFLICT error will be returned.

Creating a payment also updates all referenced debts:

Each payment line can also reference either a credit note or a debit note. If they do a direct reference between that note and the document will be created instead.
