AFP Digital Badge: Mitigating Payment Pitfalls


Payments are a part of any treasury professional’s job. Even if they do not directly manage A/P, Treasury Departments and Treasury Managers are typically involved in facilitating or initiating many types of corporate payments. But the treasury professionals job doesn’t always end once a payment is made.  Whether check, EFT or card, payments are complex things, involving any number of independent participants, and they don’t always go where we want them to when we want them to. Sometimes this is due to fraud, but it can also be due to various failures and problems in the payment chain itself. Often, the first time Treasury knows there’s a problem is when someone calls to complain that they haven’t received their payment. What do you do now?

This Treasury Badge program will take a look at some of the reasons why payments fail and what treasury can do to fix the problem. Even better, help avoid the problem in the first place. The program consists of a series of seven individual sessions that take a look at the various payment channels corporates typically use and examine some of the potential problems.
