Citibank PayLink®

What is it?

Citibank PayLink® provides a complete payment solution for your local currency payments, providing your business enterprises with a convenient, fast, reliable and secure way to make in-country disbursements to your suppliers, vendors, shareholders, employees, other companies and individuals.

How does it work?

You input your payment instructions into the Citibank PayLink® system, via a download from your system or manual input. The information regarding beneficiaries (name, account number, etc.) is entered only once.

Establish a computer link with Citibank® in order to transmit the payment instructions and beneficiary information, as well as to provide authorization.

Payment information can be accessed using CitiDirect® Online Banking.

Citibank PayLink® makes the payments in accordance with your instructions:

What are the benefits?

Flexibility: The wide variety of Citibank PayLink® payment instruments gives you the flexibility you need to make your payments.

Cost Reduction: Increased automation of your payment process will reduce internal processing & administrative costs.

Security: A number of control mechanisms help ensure a high level of security. For example, access to the system is restricted to authorised company personnel through user profiles, which define the functions operators are allowed to perform.
