Enabling Certify Payments for Certify AP

With Certify Payments, companies can quickly and easily pay Invoices through direct deposit to a vendor's bank account domestically and internationally, in a variety of currencies. Additionally, if Pay By Check is used, paper checks can be sent directly to vendors in cases where electronic payments are not needed.

This article shows you, a Certify AP Administrator, how to configure Certify Payments.

To use Certify Payments:

  • You must work with your Customer Success Manager to enable Certify Payments for your account.
  • Your company must use Certify AP (and not Certify Invoice).
  • All vendors must have a Payment Method indicated on their vendor record.
  • A Certify Treasurer must be established for your company on the Certify Expense side.
