Comdata ConnectPay offers the ability to consolidate your payment methods into one electronic payment platform. In addition to virtual payment processing, ConnectPay supports other payment types including ACH, wire, check, and international (SWIFT, IBAN, ACH international).

Comdata will work with you to install ConnectPay on one of your computers and integrate it with your ERP systems. Once integrated, you can begin uploading payment files via

ConnectPay’s secure FTP client. Depending on how your vendor is set up to be paid in your ERP, ConnectPay will process the payment for you. For example, if you have vendors set up to be paid via checks, ConnectPay will take your payment information and print a check with the details needed for processing.
