Frequently asked questions
Batch processing is used for completing outgoing payments to multiple vendors from the business bank account automatically. It is an efficient way as opposed to making individual payments every cycle.
Bulk payments involve paying out in a single currency from a single debtor account to multiple recipients. These payments are made on a prescheduled date every month. On the other hand, batch payments can be made from multiple payee accounts to multiple recipients. These payments may even involve recipients with different currency preferences.
The top two benefits of batch payments are:
An added advantage of batch payments is the optimization of cross-border payments irrespective of the currencies involved.
The debtor uploads a list of accounts with the receivers’ account details and preferred currency into the batch processing system. The system validates the data. Finally, transactions take place through a batch-processing payments gateway into different recipient accounts at once.
Batch processing is cheaper, more streamlined, and more organized manner of payments processing. It facilitates faster payments and simplified reconciliation with the help of modern technology solutions.
