Will current suppliers in SIMBA have to register in PaymentWorks?

Yes, all suppliers will eventually need to onboard through PaymentWorks.

Penn State is onboarding suppliers to PaymentWorks in a phased approach over the next six months.

  • Phase 1: October - November, new suppliers registering with the University or any current suppliers that need to make changes to their existing supplier record will register through PaymentWorks.
  • Phase 2:  Beginning December 1, all current suppliers who conduct greater than 100 transactions annually will be invited to register through PaymentWorks.
  • Phase 3: Starting January 2023 the University will invite all remaining suppliers to register through PaymentWorks.

Current Simba suppliers will not be required to register in PaymentWorks UNTIL they need to make updates to existing information, or until requested to do so by receiving an invite to onboard from an authorized Penn State contact.
