As many customers use the same vendor, we process your Master Vendor file against our vendor database to see if any vendors are already enrolled through other Comdata customers. If no records are found, a Master Vendor (MV) Record is created for the vendor. If a record is found, then a Customer Vendor (CV) Record is created as an extension of the existing MV.

To create a match, the database looks at five items in the new vendor’s information:

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Address
  • Tax ID
  • Email Address

The more accurate these fields, the easier the match process and less work needed on your end.
