There is a way to avoid having to pay individual invoices! How, you may ask? It is as easy as reviewing your routing tables. Carefully populate your routing tables, selecting FREE or RECIPRICAL lenders in your first cells. If there are no FREE sources, then proceed to route requests to other EFTS member institutions! You may never see an invoice again!

Replenishing your account in a timely matter is important. Many of you submit paperwork to your accounting department and they, in turn cut a check to us. Please follow-up on your request to be sure the payment has actually been processed and a check has been issued and mailed. Checks are posted to the account on the day the check was received in our mail. If you do not see the payment reflected in your balance, we have not received your payment.
