Which payment methods does Corpay One support?

How do I specify which payment method to use for each vendor?

Under each vendor's detail page accessed via the Bill Pay > Vendors page:

How long does it take Corpay One to deliver the payment to the vendor?

If Autopay is enabled, Corpay One will initiate your bill payment up to 7 business days in advance of the due date, depending on the settings you've selected in Settings > Advanced > Payments. You may also initiate payment manually by hitting the Pay Now button on an unpaid bill.
