Paymode

George Mason University’s Accounts Payable department also utilizes the Paymode-X service offered by Bank of America Merrill Lynch to replace paper checks.

    float.

    modifications to your existing accounts receivable systems, and no changes to your bank or bank
    accounts.
  • Includes detailed remittance information – PayMode-X enables delivery of digital remittance
    information along with the payment for easier reconciliation.
  • Provides history of payments – A detailed history of all PayMode-X payments from George Mason
    University will be readily available on the PayMode-X website.
