Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments allow funds to be directly deposited into your account, replacing paper checks that may require a trip to the bank to deposit or that may be lost in the mail. Although registering for ACH payments through our secured Supplier Portal is recommended, it is not mandatory. If you do not register for ACH payments, you will receive a paper check, which is our default payment method.  

Updated banking details are reviewed by Purchasing for approval.
