The Business Payments Coalition (BPC) is a volunteer group of organizations and individuals working together to promote greater adoption of electronic business-to-business (B2B) payments, remittance data, and invoices. The BPC’s wide-ranging goal is to make B2B electronic payments more efficient across the end-to-end process, that is, to achieve straight-through-processing across both the procure-to-pay and order-to-cash cycles. The BPC accomplishes this objective by addressing problems and barriers that make it difficult for businesses to use electronic alternatives to paper checks, remittance data and invoices.
The BPC promotes B2B payments education through regular conference calls, meetings and webinars. It also sponsors and facilitates work groups that develop educational, technical and standards material. Participation in the BPC is open to any individual or organization and there is no cost to join or to participate.
The Business Payments Coalition changed its name in 2016 from “Remittance Coalition.” BPC documents created prior to 2016 are published under the Remittance Coalition name.
