• ePayables

    Virtual card payments as part of a Card-based purchasing strategy.

    Our ePayable virtual payment solution allows your employees to make purchases efficiently and securely, without time-consuming paperwork and approval processes.

    ePayables produces a zero-credit unique card number which is embedded with a supplier to pay for individual or batched purchases. Enhanced data supports quicker and automated reconciliation and admin processes.

  • ePayables: How it works

    • ePayables allows suppliers to charge a unique virtual card for individual or batched purchases.
    • An approved payment file from your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution immediately funds the zero balance virtual card issued to the supplier with the total invoice amount processed in the Accounts Payable (AP) file.
    • Email remittance is sent to the supplier instructing them to take payment for the amount funded onto the virtual card.
