Drexel University Quick Pay Program


Corporate Quick Pay is a Digital Payment Solution through JP Morgan Chase. Quick Pay is a secure and easy way to pay Research Participants.  Departmental personnel will save a lot of time paying research participants as the Quick Pay system allows you to pay multiple research participants at one time by completing a template.  The fees for the usage of QP are very minimal compared to other payment options. (Please see bottom for this information.)  The payments to participants are made timely either on the visit date or within 24 hours of the visit date.  The payment is made once the department uploads and saves the completed template file to the PI’s secure Research Payment shared folder, notifies ORI that a file has been uploaded to the shared folder, ORI uploads the file to the Corporate QP platform and is approved by ORI.  Templates will be processed after 1:30PM on the day you inform ORI that a new file has been prepared.

 JP Morgan QP Study Template 

  • JP Morgan created a special Template for Participant Payments [XLS] for Drexel University Research, to encompass all items  needed to pay research participants via the Quick Pay platform.
    • The template is the same for every Drexel University Research Study, it does not change. The blank template should be saved by the department to be used after a file has been completed and uploaded to be paid.
    • The template needs to be saved by the department personnel; suggest using study name and date/s of service, i.e., Protocol #_1_1_11
    • When the department is ready to pay the participants on the file, they need to save the file to the PI’s shared folder. (The shared file name cannot exceed 50 characters.)
    • Once the file is saved to the PI’s shared folder the department needs to inform ORI so they can proceed with uploading to and approving the file in the QP Platform.
    • The departments study participants will be paid depending on when the department saves the file to the shared folder.
