Startup checklist

A step by step checklist to assist with setting up the account.

  • Set up the Inbox
    • Create a personalized @bill.com email address to send in unlimited amounts of documentation.

    • To send payments, bank account details are needed. There are two methods that can be used to add a bank account.
  • Approver Settings
    • Approval customizations allow flexibility based on business need

Things to know

Process Date vs. Arrives by Date

The process date is the date funds will be debited from the bank account. Arrives by date depends on the payment method.

Payment Timing

The first five payments will take a few extra days because all new accounts have to build some payment history. Once there are five successful payments in the Bill.com account, the account is reviewed and put on default payment timing.
