Paying AP Invoices with Certify Payments

Follow

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.

Certify Payments works for both expense reimbursements and invoice payments, creating an organized, consistent, and streamlined payment process.

This article shows you, a Certify AP Administrator, how to configure Certify Payments and walks through how to:

  • Set up Invoice Payment Methods
  • Work with the Accounting Reviewer to process and pay Invoices using Certify Payments
  • Use Certify Expense together with Certify AP to manage Invoice 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.

Setting up Certify Payments for Certify AP
