Electronic Payments

Home » Electronic Payments

One of the primary objectives of the BPC is to promote greater usage of electronic payments in B2B transactions. Electronic payments are generally recognized as less expensive and less fraud-prone than checks.

One key enabler for electronic payments and B2B payment efficiency is for payers to obtain trusted payment information for their suppliers. The BPC completed a B2B Directory project in 2016 that resulted in the Business Payments Directory Association (BPDA) (Off-site), a non-profit organization dedicated to creation of a B2B Directory. The B2B Directory is a public utility database, or “public phone book” of business payees and payee information that will allow payers to find the information needed to make payments to their payees electronically.
