'However' should be set off by commas.  Always end your sentences with a proper punctuation mark.


We, however, have made payment.


Changing the position of 'however' can convey a slightly different meaning to this sentence. As you have written it, this implies that 'we', rather than somebody else, have made the payment. The emphasis is on 'we'


If you put 'however' after 'have', then the implication is that the bill has been paid, rather than not paid. The emphasis is on 'have'. It's a very subtle difference and not an important distinction,  but I thought I would point it out.

We have, however, made payment.
