Adding your Financial Information in Provider Automation ensures that you can do business with ServiceChannel clients. Here, you can manage pertinent financial information that clients need for operational purposes , and that need for invoicing and collecting payment faster and easier.
There are two sections to complete:
- Financial Information, which includes Remittance, and Sales Tax, and W-9 form (the United States only), and
- My Account, which includes adding a payment method for platform usage fees.
On the Profile Overview page, you will see the Financial Information area.
Financial information consists of completing Remittance for invoicing, Sales Tax registration, a W-9 form (U.S.-based businesses only), Verification for Payment, and Banking. This section is visible to clients who invite you into their Private Network.
In case when your Clients require that, it is very important to keep your direct deposit information so clients can use this information to pay you via direct deposit. It will reduce the time it takes for you to receive payment. Banking information is also required when you sign up to become a Verified Provider. See more information about Verified Provider /wiki/spaces/UJNK/pages/710313161.
The banking section of client requirements is used to collect information so a client can pay you for work done in Service Automation. Only clients that enroll in ServiceChannel’s Payment Manager will use this requirement. Client’s that need to collect this information to pay you outside of ServiceChannel Payment manager will request the information in another way.
Under My Account, add payment methods to your Provider Automation account.
Service Providers can use the Directory Profile section of Provider Automation for free, meaning once your profile is complete, potential clients can find you in our Directory and invite you into their private networks in order to do business, at no charge.
Once your clients start doing business with you, ServiceChannel charges all providers a nominal usage fee for each approved invoice (one percent (1%) per approved invoice, but no more than two dollars ($2.00 USD) per approved invoice). These small fees help us bring you Provider Automation, our mobile application, and various benefits and services.
It is important to complete My Account so you are prepared to invoice your clients. You will not be charged until your clients approves your invoices.
Next, review your financial information in your Profile.
