There's no need to buy new hardware or software to use Batch Payments or Returns: all you need is access to the internet. Click on the demos below to see how the systems look from a retailer's point of view.
When you register to use Batch Payments, you will be asked for some basic information about your business so we can allocate you a password and set you up on the Batch system. We will check whether you have a valid SAN or GLN (a code that identifies your business to all the suppliers); if you don't, we can help you to get one.
Select the publishers and distributors you wish to deal with through Batch and we will take the invoices from those suppliers and put them on your Batch account where you can see them 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Visit Register with Suppliers for a full list.
Batch puts you in charge: select which suppliers to pay and authorise the amount three days before the deadline for payment. (The Authorisation Deadlines are in a box on our Home page.) Make one payment a month per currency to pay all your invoices.
When you register to use Batch Returns, you will be asked for some basic information about your business so we can set you up on the Batch system. You will be asked to set your own password. We will check whether you have a valid SAN or GLN (a code that identifies your business to all the suppliers); if you don't, we can help you to get one.
Select the publishers and distributors you wish to handle returns with through Batch and we will tell those suppliers that you would like to deal with them electronically.
We will contact you when your Batch Returns account has been set up and is ready to use.
