The ARIBA Payments tab will always show "Check" on the Transaction Details, even though our preferred method of payment is the ePayables bank card.
The "Check Number" includes a letter at the beginning which identifies the actual payment method which is typically an electronic method instead of a check. In addition, a supplier's system may take our payment number (the "Check Number") and convert it to a transaction number where the letter is replaced by a corresponding number and the remaining digits stay the same. Here is what the different Check Numbers on the Payments tab mean:
|UW Check Number Letter||Supplier Transaction Number||Payment Type|
|R (Example: R094266)||52 (Example: 52094266)||ePayables Card|
|T (Example: T163242)||51 (Example: 51163242)||ACH|
|A (Example: A499859)||10 (Example: 10499859)||Paper Check|
* Note: Paper checks are printed featuring the Check Number beginning with "A." Depending on a supplier's deposit process, their bank processing may convert this to the Transaction Number where the "A" is converted to "10" as shown in the matrix above.
