Managing Vendors payment methods

When using to pay your vendors, choose whether a vendor gets paid by check or ePayments. By default, all vendors are set up to be paid via check when first added to

  • To pay them via ACH, set them up for ePayment
  • If we detect that a vendor has opted in for Vendor Direct payments, their payment method will be updated to Vendor Direct


ePayments have several benefits:

  • Save money - ePayments are much less expensive than checks
  • Keep your vendors happy - ePayments arrive really fast, directly into your vendor's bank account. They won't have to wait for a check to arrive in the mail, and then make a trip to the bank!
  • Environmentally friendly - save paper and carbon emissions by eliminating a piece of physical mail

Our network of companies accepting ePayments is growing every day. When you add a new vendor, large or small, we'll automatically let you know if we think they already use to accept ePayments. And for the vendors you've already entered in, you have many options:

  • See if your vendor already uses to accept ePayments - we'll search our network, as well as our network of large billers, and display any potential matches we find. Just check their Vendor Detail page in your account.
    • Note: An account number and vendor zip code is always required to connect with any vendor in the large biller network
  • Invite your vendors to join our network and get paid online for free (email address required)
  • Manually enter your vendor's bank account information

Vendor Direct

Some of your vendors may have opted in for Vendor Direct payments. These vendors have indicated they prefer Vendor Direct payments in lieu of a check or epayment. Vendor Direct payments are a digital alternative to paper checks. They are secure and fast and best of all free to you. only sends Vendor Direct payments to suppliers who have confirmed that they prefer card payments. To opt out of this payment method, contact Customer Support to have this free feature disabled.

Things to know

  • Reverting an ePayment vendor back to check will inactivate any bank information that was previously entered for the vendor
    • To change a vendor back to ePayment, connect to them via the Network or enter the bank account information again
  • Check arrival dates are estimated because once the check is sent we have no control over the United States Postal Service.
  • ePayments can still be sent to a private vendor through the previously verified bank account until the vendor accepts the invitation, and adds a verified bank account.
  • If at any time the vendor cancels their account or the bank account is inactivated, the vendor will default back to check payments and a new bank will need to be added either manually in the vendor record or via network connection in order to resume ePayments
