And now payment details. You can request payment by check, credit card, or wire.

If you’re requesting payment by check be certain to note who the check should be made payable to, in some cases this is different than the vendor’s name.

Is this request for payment a reimbursement? If so put your name as it should appear on the check in the Payable To field, you can leave your mailing address in notes. If you’re outside of the United States and requesting reimbursement by wire enter your own information into the beneficiary fields.

Fill out the vendor details. Vendor name, address, and telephone number are all required. But it’s always good to list a contact name and email address when possible.

Attach all supporting documentation. An invoice is the most common document but you can also upload contracts to be signed, credit card authorizations, bank documents, and any other document relevant to your payment request. If you’re submitting a request for reimbursement please upload your receipt. Any payment requests sent without documentation will be delayed until required documentation has been received.  You can also enter any additional notes here.
