Commercial payments are transactions that businesses or corporations create to pay or collect funds using these payment options:

  1. ACH
  2. Wires


Templates help you reduce error rates, delegate tasks, and control regular payments. With templates, it’s easy for you to set up and use repetitive payments, including:

  • Payments to vendors and suppliers
  • Collections from customers
  • Payroll payments

Each type of payment template is different, depending on what payment options you have requested. Payment templates can be used, but not limited to, the following:

  • Creating one-time payments and to create templates to automate routine payments
  • Making recurring future payments by setting specified schedules
  • Making a payment to recipients with single or multiple accounts, and making the payment to one-time recipients by not saving their information
  • Choosing to make ACH, wires, payroll, or payment from file payments

Assigning a Template to your employees

You can create a template and assign it to another user (employee). You can also control how that user can access, use, and change the template. Depending on the user’s rights, that user can do some or all of the following:

  • Create a payment from the template and change only the date, amount,
    and description.
  • Create a payment from the template and change any field.
  • Edit the template and save the changes for all users.

Multiple recipients can be added to a Payment Template (ex: Employees for payroll, etc.)
