How to manage FedEx Express & FedEx Ground Billing Online
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the electronic exchange of data between entities using a standardized format. It is used for many data types including invoicing, shipping, receiving, tracking, remittance, and internal platform-to-platform file transfers.
For large companies with established accounts payable procedures, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) can help reduce paper, check-processing costs and keying errors.
Automatic credit card billing
Accounts with a linked credit card can view detailed billing information within FedEx Billing Online.
Receive paper invoices and send checks by mail. Paper invoice customers do not have online access to their invoice. Only certain accounts qualify. To sign up, call your FedEx account executive or customer support.

Therefore, if the payment in question was scheduled and processed in FedEx Billing Online, information on that payment can be found by searching the Payment Reference number.
