The World Bank Account Payable section processes invoices, vendor payment and related accounting services for corporate goods and services procured by WBG organizations following best in class commercial practices and systems.


For instructions on how to submit your World Bank invoice, please refer to the procedure outlined in your purchase order.  If you were not issued a purchase order, please contact your World Bank Group representative for further assistance.


The World Bank Group leverages multiple channels and methods to process payments to its vendors, including but not limited to, global electronic fund transfers and local payments. 

Vendors are expected to provide current commercial bank account information for the WBG to remit payment for invoices presented. Vendors shall be responsible for: (i) ensuring that any necessary arrangements are in place with their banking institution to facilitate receipt of WBG’s payments; (ii) covering any bank fees or other charges levied on vendor by their banking institution as it relates to WBG’s payments. 

The World Bank Group manages the timing of the release of vendor invoice payments in accordance with contractual payment terms.

The WBG will send to the vendor email address on file an automated payment confirmation for each payment processed.

Should you need to update your vendor banking information, please contact your World Bank Group representative, who will provide further instructions on where you need to directly communicate the bank details.
