Vendor payments are crucial to every business — whether they’re for office amenities, SAAS subscriptions, or products & services specific to an organization.

Consider this — if you’re an IT service provider, you might have a subscription to the Jira software; in the case of a digital marketing agency, it could be Adobe Photoshop or even Shutterstock.

 

The current challenges with vendor payments  

 

Net banking 

  1. Once a new beneficiary (your vendor) is added for bank transfer, the cooling period takes anywhere between 30 minutes – 24 hours (or more), depending on the bank. 
  2. Not just that — only a limited amount can be transferred the first time. 🤦‍♀️  And yes, that amount varies from bank to bank.

Cheque

  1. Writing cheques is subject to human errors — this is undeniable.
  2. Also, making vendor payments via cheques demand your physical presence to sign the cheque. 

Reconciliation 

  1. Tracking which payment was made to which vendor on which day, or in other words, tracking every vendor transaction via UTR is highly tedious & time-consuming. 😩
