- 62% of organizations have been the target of payment fraud; three-quarters of that fraud is from checks
- The cost to process one check can be as high as $5
- The cost to process a check costs 10 times more than a card-based or ACH-based electronic payment
PAYMENTS platform and network
Chrome River PAYMENTS provides an online platform to review, approve and administer all vendor payments regardless of payment type or financial institution. These electronic payments are safely and securely managed as follows.
- Card only – to maximize revenue share on spend that is converted to card
- Card first – to balance revenue share on spend that is converted to card and maximize conversion to electronic payments through ACH
- ACH only – to maximize conversion to electronic payments
All you need to do is enable your vendors through vendor engagement to receive these card or ACH payments from your organization. For vendors that don’t accept card or ACH payments, Chrome River can process the check for you.
