Electronic Payment Information
Doing business with the State of South Carolina has never been so easy! We make it simple through our provided online banking services.
The State of South Carolina has launched Operation Check Reduction, ending the use of paper checks and allowing vendors to receive funds faster, save money and be more secure. To enroll in electronic payments, please complete and mail STO Form 4 found below.
Please note: Due to the U.S. Postal Service’s unprecedented volume increases, mail sent to and from our office may be delayed, including forms, documentation and checks.

Access to the Electronic Vendor Payment Database is provided by the State Treasurer’s Office as a means for vendors (payees) to identify the invoice(s) being paid by a direct deposit. The State Treasurer’s Office uses the Corporate Trade Exchange (CTX) Automated Clearing House (ACH) format to directly deposit payments into a participating vendor’s bank account. The State Treasurer's Office DOES NOT provide the vendor with notification of a deposit. It is the responsibility of the financial institution to provide remittance information to the vendor. If the financial institution cannot provide this information, it can be located by searching this database. Only the most recent six months of electronic vendor payments are available in this database.
This database can be searched by entering the vendor’s Employer Identification Number (EIN) and the exact amount of the direct deposit on the banking statement received from the financial institution.
