Why Paymode-X?

UC San Diego has partnered with BNY-Mellon to provide Paymode-X as a payment method, which will protect the banking information of our suppliers to reduce the risk of fraud from supplier impersonation with electronic funds transfer and check payments. Recently, Higher Education institutions have been the targets of fraudulent activities that have resulted in large losses.
