International Wire Payments: Vendor bank update for China, Japan, South Africa and the United Kingdom (UK)

The required information for making payments to bank accounts in China, Japan, South Africa and the United Kingdom (UK), are changing. The bank account information currently added for these vendors will need to be updated.

These updates will help to ensure seamless delivery of funds, on time and without complications.

If you set up your UK or Japan vendors before 3/8/19 or your China or South Africa vendors before 4/12/19, they will need to be updated. In the future, this will be a requirement before you are able to submit new payments to them.



Wait for any scheduled International wire payments to clear for your vendors in China, Japan, South Africa and the UK then:

  1. Deactivate the bank for these vendors - see Deactivating a Vendor bank account
  2. Re-enter the bank account with the new requirements - see Setting up an International vendor for wire transfer
