Manage autopay or recurring payments

In Key CashFlow℠, you have 2 ways to setup Autopay.

  • Autopay for Inbox bills - Create a bill from the Inbox and autopay those bills
  • Recurring Autopay without bills - Pay your vendor a set amount without a bill

Choose the method that works best for you and your vendor type to save time scheduling payments.

Note: To avoid duplicate payments, only one type of autopay can be active per vendor. If you enable one while the other is already active, the previous autopay setup will be canceled.
