Pay your USD invoices by direct debit

If you are invoiced in USD, you can register to pay your invoices by direct debit. The process depends on whether your USD is located in the US or outside of the US.

Complete the registration process if the account from which you want the invoices to be debited must be located in the United States.

  • Download the "Preauthorised debit payment - Authorisation agreement" form.
  • Fill in the form, including your account number and the ABA number (also known as Fedwire Routing number, Transit Routing number or ACH number) of the selected institution.
  • Ensure duly authorised persons in your institution sign the form and send the completed form to:
