Wednesday, April 4, 2018 | 2:00pm-3:00pm Eastern Time

Compared to paper checks, electronic payments are less expensive, more accurate, significantly faster, more transparent, and less risky.  And paper checks don’t offer any opportunities to earn cash-back rebates.  Yet many organizations pay most of their suppliers using checks.  The reason is that many organizations have trouble separating fact from fiction when it comes to electronic payments. During this webinar, our payment myth busters will clear up the biggest misunderstandings, mix-ups and muddles in electronic payments, and provide definitive answers to your most vexing questions.
