Finding the details of an ePayment to a vendor
When we send an ePayment to a vendor, we also send:
- An email notification when the payment is scheduled, and when the payment is deposited. The emails include the payment info:
- Payment Method
- Payment Date
- Invoice #s paid
- An update to their bank statement regarding the deposit, called a header
The header on the vendor's bank statement tells them where the deposit came from, and what it is for.
The headers display different info based on whether the vendor is a standard ePayment vendor, or a large biller in our Network.
Standard ePayment vendor
Standard ePayment vendors are vendors you connected to through the Network, one you sent an inivitation to, or one you manually entered bank account information for. Their headers show the following:
- < Business name the payment is sent from > via PayMaker
- Invoice number being paid with the payment
- If multiple invoices are paid with one payment, invoice # will not show, instead it will say Multiple
- Amount paid
- Reference ID (this is the ACH Confirmation Number)
Note: What is displayed on bank statements is dependant on what the receiving bank chooses to display.
Large Billers can include water, power, cable, phone, electric, and other well-known companies, which you connect to through the Network. Their headers show the following:
- Business name the payment is sent from
- Account number of the vendor
- Amount paid
- Trace number (identifies each entry within a batch in an ACH input file)
- Email Notifications
