Purchasing Payment Program

Preferred Payment Option

The City of Fort Myers preferred payment program is EPayable, which is a card-based electronic payment platform offered through Commerce Bank. For a nominal fee, the city’s Accounts Payable (AP) processes payments to vendors through a payment card. The payee receives an email alerting the vendor that a payment is ready to be processed, and the payee can instantly download the payment to the company bank account.

Commerce Bank EPayable payments are processed on Wednesday and the payments are available Friday. This should mitigate the nominal fee for using this service.

Payment Requirements

Invoices must be billed to "The City of Fort Myers" and contain all pertinent information necessary to expeditiously process payment, including the:

  • Department and contact name
  • Ship-to address
  • Purchase order number
  • Date service provided or goods received

Email invoice(s) to Accounts Payable at ap@cityftmyers.com with a copy to the department.
