Payment order message
This specification provides the definition of the Payment order message (PAYORD) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners, involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1. Functional Definition
A Payment Order is sent by the Ordering Customer (or Payor or Agent on behalf of the Ordering Customer) to the Ordered Bank, to instruct the Ordered Bank to debit an account it services for the Ordering Customer, and to arrange for the payment of a specified amount to the Beneficiary (or Payee or Agent in favour of Beneficiary) in settlement of the referenced business transaction(s). Throughout this document, the term 'Ordering Customer' refers to either an Ordering Customer, or a Payor or Agent acting on behalf of the Ordering Customer; likewise the term 'Beneficiary' refers to either a Beneficiary, or a Payee or Agent acting on behalf of the Beneficiary.
1.2. Field of Application
This message may be applied for both national and international settlements. It is based on universal practice and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.
A Payment Order may cover the financial settlement of one or more commercial trade transactions, such as invoices, credit notes, debit notes, etc. It is not intended for use in securities trading.
The Ordered Bank may need a confirmation/authorization to be able to process the Payment Order Message.
