In Procore Pay, a Payments Admin is a designated Procore user who administers the Company level Payments tool for that company's Procore account. Typically, one (1) or a small number of trusted users are designated to perform the tasks associated with this role.


Are you the designated Payments Admin for your company? If your company pays invoices with Procore Pay and your company designated you as a Payments Admin (see Add Payments Admins as a Payor), you can learn about the actions you can perform in the Payor: Payments Admin Guide.

What is the difference between a Payments Admin in Procore Pay and Company Admin in Procore? 

  • A Payments Admin is a designated role for Procore Pay and is responsible for the administration of the Company level Payments tool. To learn more about the Payments Admin role in Procore Pay, see Payor: Payments Admin Guide
  • A Company Admin is responsible for the overall administration of your company's Procore account. To learn more, see What is a Company Admin?. In Procore, a Company Admin is also called your Procore Administrator. For more information, see the Procore Administrator learning path.
    Due to the sensitive nature of financial transactions with Procore Pay, a Company Admin has limited access to the Payments tool. To provide a Company Admin with access to the Payments tool, an authorized signer at your company must also designate them as a Payments Admin. See Add or Remove Payments Admins as a Payor

Why do we need to designate a Payments Admin?

Your company must designate a Payments Admin to administer the features and settings governed by the Company level Payments tool. In addition to configuring settings that facilitate payment processing, the Payments Admin role is also responsible for managing your company-level lien waiver settings, configuring payment requirements, and managing custom workflow templates. 

How is the Payments Admin role assigned to Procore Pay users? 

An authorized signer at your company must sign and complete a Procore Pay Authorized Administrator Form. See Add or Remove Payments Admins as a Payor.

Do Payment Admins in Procore Pay require Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)?

Yes. Payment Admins are required to verify their identities before gaining access to Procore Pay and before performing sensitive transactions. To learn more, see How does MFA work with Procore Pay and why is it required?
