vendor Payment Runs

  • Select invoices for payment
  • Pay using your existing bank
  • Payment run approval process
  • Simple yet faster
  • Payments without the frustration

As much as technology has improved, there is one industry that seems rooted in the 1950s. Our banks. Even though London has exploded as a global Fintech capital, many of our banks still seem to run on steam and valves. Even though we are all used to paying our vendors using our online banking software, and cheques are well and truly consigned to the past, the process can be still be improved and eventually automated. Having partnered with Comma Zahara can now facilitate payments from your existing bank accounts.

Payments from your existing bank

With Zahara's partnering with Comma, payments can be made from within our invoice list view. You can clearly see the approved invoices and their due dates. These can be selected for payment. We hand the vendor and invoice information over to Comma and from here you can login, check the payment run and then release the payment. The key thing with Comma is that is uses Open Banking so therefore works with your existing (UK only) banks.

International Payments

The next step in our payments journey will be international payments. This is still cumbersome and expensive using existing banks. We have identified major players in the market who can provide the service, technology and affordable plans that all Zahara customers will require. We plan on releasing this by summer 2023. Using the same principle as domestic payments, invoices can be selected for payment and then handed over seamlessly to the provider for international payments to be authorised ans released. Less fuss, less costs, less hassle.
