If I want to confirm receiving payment with the sender, can I use verbs like reach and arrive? For example,

The payment/money has reached us.

The payment/money has arrived.

Are there better ways to say it?


A better option would be:

We received the money.


We received the payment.

    I think I would say, "We have received your payment" or "Your payment has been received." – Jim Jun 14 '12 at 4:32
  • Yes that is a more 'friendly' way to say it. :-) – user22244 Jun 14 '12 at 4:32

Both of those are valid. You could also use the passive voice construction been received.

  • Arrived and reached are both valid but could not be used in this context, unless the money is dilvered by a real person to your doorsteps. – Noah Jun 14 '12 at 11:57
