Setting up and using the Network

The Network is a great addition to the wide array of business tools available in PayMaker. We offer various features for the Network:

  • View possible matches in the Network based on your vendor list
  • Connect with vendors you are already paying by check who may be using
  • See how your rate of ePayment adoption compares with the top ePayment users in PayMaker

Find any company in the Network using:

  • Business Name
  • Payment Network ID (PNI)
    • Each account has its own unique Payment Network ID, which can be obtained from the vendor or customer to connect


Keep track of existing connections all in one place. All connected vendors and/or customers will be listed here.


Monitor the invitations that have been sent and received. Sort them by status:

  • Any
  • Pending
  • Accepted
  • Rejected
