  • International Suppliers are encouraged to sign-up for wire payments.
  • Virtual credit card payments are available for domestic and international suppliers who meet specific criteria.
  • Payment by check is available, but strongly discouraged; payments rendered by check will result in a longer turn-around time for payment and expose both suppliers and Yale University to fraud.
