Order for payment
The order to pay is a simplified procedure, specific to commercial courts, used to collect a debt without having to summon the debtor before a court. It has the particularity of being rapid and not definitive. By obtaining a writ of execution at the end of these proceedings, the judge's decision can be enforced.

In legal terms, a debt is the right for one entity/person (the creditor) to demand something of someone (the debtor), especially a sum of money.
The Commercial court has jurisdiction when it is a business debt or due to a bill of exchange being accepted.
