Direct pay from shippers

Hey guys, new to this part of trucking. If not using the factoring company for a load, what does the shipper actually need from you (the driver), to get you your money. (Routing #, etc.)?

It seems to vary with each shipper/broker. At a minimum, I send them a copy of their load confirmation (to remind them that they agreed to a certian rate) a copy of the shipper's BOL, a copy of the reciever's weight ticket or reciever's signature on the BOL, something to acknowledge reciept and finally my invoice showing the date, product hauled, quantity hauled, the rate and the total $ they owe. Some places will accept this electronically (email) others want the originals mailed to them. Also, some will pay direct to your account (ACH) others will mail you a paper check. Check your contract or speak to the person arranging the load to determine what they require
