Vendor Payment Services

Streamlining payments with Sage Intacct and American Express

With Vendor Payment Services, integrated with the American Express Global Commercial Services infrastructure, you automate your check, ACH, or American Express card payment runs to speed up processing, save you time and money, and reduce your risk. You decide what to pay and how to pay it—Sage Intacct and American Express take care of all the details. When you pay with your American Express card, you also earn the rewards associated with the card, effectively monetizing your AP process.

Faster, automated payments

Processing and tracking payments, whether check, ACH, or credit card can add headaches and complexity to your financial workflow. With Vendor Payment Services built on the American Express Global Commercial Services infrastructure, you automate your check, ACH, or credit card payment runs to speed up the process, saving you time and money, while also reducing risk.


End the payment busy work

Say goodbye to the frustrations of printing and mailing checks, creating NACHA files for your bank ACH, or repeatedly entering credit card numbers. Now, you can generate checks against your bank accounts and have them printed and mailed for you. With ACH, just select and send payments—that’s it. Use the card payment service to securely pay vendors that accept American Express, without re-entering card information each time. Whether you choose check, ACH, or card payment services, Sage Intacct automatically tracks and updates your payment status.
