EFT Payments application

Cheque fraud and theft has become rampant, and can cause your company untold expense and hours of wasted time, not to mention the stress, aggravation, and feeling of vulnerability when it happens.
Paying your vendors by EFT has these benefits:
  • prevent cheque fraud
  • fast and efficient
  • save on postage, envelopes, pre-printed cheque stock
  • save the time and the hassle of stuffing envelopes and mailing
  • secure

Even with the bank fees for processing EFT payments, you will still save money over processing and mailing cheques. And also gain the added security of paying your bills electronically.
