Get paid for your vendor services

Apply for Paymode-X™ to get online payments for your services as a vendor, contractor, or supplier.

What to do

The City & County of San Francisco makes daily payments to our vendors, contractors, and suppliers through Paymode-X™, an online payment provider (also known as "Automated Clearing House" or "ACH" payments). All vendors with new and extended/renewed contracts must sign up to receive electronic payments from the City through Paymode-X™.

If you were recently assigned a Supplier ID from the City & County of San Francisco, Paymode-X will contact you in approximately 1-2 weeks to assist you in applying for electronic payments.
