How To:  Mail an Invoice to Accounts Payable

Important Note:  Suppliers should mail invoices directly to Accounts Payable (suppliers should see Supplier Instructions for Submitting Invoices). Uploading invoices should be the exception process. Read Overview: Purchase Order Invoice Processing.

Before You Start

If you receive electronic copy of an invoice, please follow instructions for Uploading an Invoice. In the event you receive a paper invoice, ensure invoice meets Stanford's invoicing requirements before mailing it to Accounts Payable.

Note:  For invoices of $5,000 or more, departments must indicate approval or they will be placed on hold by AP and the requisition originator will receive an email notification requesting department approval.
