This program applies to all Kroger affiliates.
The Kroger Co. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) program automates the transfer of funds and remittance information for all the Kroger division invoices received from their vendors. The EFT program will eliminate the manual process of printing and mailing checks for these invoices.
The EFT program will consolidate payments for all Kroger divisions into one payment made to a particular vendor on a given day. Electronically transferring the funds and remittance detail benefits both The Kroger Co. and its vendors. Integrating the payment information with a company's existing cash management system and payment application processing, will maximize these potential benefits. To begin an EFT program with The Kroger Co., please review this document.
The Kroger Co. does not feel a contract is necessary for beginning an EFT program with a vendor and will not participate with vendors who make a contract a requirement.

The EDI document will be sent within the CTX electronic document. The CTX document, in its entirety, will be communicated by Kroger's bank to the vendor's bank.

Currently any EDI trading partners that want to be EFT will not have the option to receive 820 directly from Kroger via EDI. The vendor’s bank that the EFT deposit is sent to will have to provide the remittance/820 information to you. All remittance/820 is sent to each vendor’s bank by US Bank and the vendor is responsible to retrieve this remittance from their bank.
To avoid any remittance issues, please verify with your bank before going EFT that they can provide the remittance to you in the proper format. There is no test sent from Kroger to your bank for this but is a standard 820 and mapping is available at:
If you are unable to receive the remittance/820 detail from your bank, there are two other options available:
2. Email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a copy of the remittance/820 for a fee of $25.00 per remittance.
