Supplier Payments

Doing business with Key electronically.

Thank you for being a KeyBank supplier. Below are two mutually beneficial ways to interact with us electronically for receiving payments as well as invoicing.

Payments by P-card

KeyBank's new preferred form of payment uses a virtual credit card, called a P-card, instead of a check or electronic funds transfer.

Advantages of P-cards

With our new payment system, we process your invoice(s) and electronically initiate a single-use virtual payment card to you.

Benefits of virtual credit card payments:

  • Fast and more secure payment
  • Elimination of potential for delayed or lost checks
  • Simplified reconciliation; your payment card’s transactional data is supplemented with invoice number and other payment reference data
  • Greater control over accounts receivable

To start being paid via fast, secure virtual credit card, fill out the form below.

Electronic Invoicing

KeyBank has simplified the invoicing process for suppliers. We’re shifting from manual invoicing to fast, secure electronic invoicing using Ariba Network eInvoices.

Advantages of eInvoicing for Suppliers

With eInvoicing, network business rules will alert suppliers about errors and prevent incorrect invoices from entering process workflow or back-end systems. Plus, you can automate processing for all types of invoices, including PDF invoices, non-PO invoices, and invoices for complex services.

This enables:

  • Accelerated cycle times
  • Automated approvals and exception-handling
  • Stronger compliance to contract/order terms
  • Supplier visibility into approval/payment status
