Sometimes a situation arises in which a payment needs to get to a vendor as quickly as possible. Now instead of breaking Bill.com workflows to wire funds or overnight a check, leverage Bill.com's pay faster options to get checks and ePayments to vendors quickly and reliably.
Once the payment timing has been accelerated, the account's bank authorized users will have access to Bill.com's expedited payment options, listed below. When first starting with the Bill.com service, allow 4 banking days for both ePayments and mailed checks. After 5 completed payments, payment timing will accelerate (for example, ePayments under $5,000 will arrive in 2 banking days).
Pay faster options
A Check Pay faster payment needs to be scheduled by 12pm PT to process the next banking day:
- Overnight check delivery
- Note: Overnight Pay Faster checks made on a Friday will be delivered the following Monday (or next available business day)
- 2-day check delivery
- 3-day check delivery
Expedited checks are delivered via UPS by default with tracking include. However, if the payment is going to a PO Box, a US Territory (outside the 50 US States) or a non serviceable address for UPS, it will be sent via USPS.
An ACH Pay faster payment needs to be scheduled by 6pm PT to process the next banking day
- Overnight ePayment delivery
- Note: Overnight Pay Faster ePayments made on a Friday will be deposited the following Monday (or next available business day)
Note: The earliest date a Pay faster payment can be scheduled to process is the next banking day.
How to make an expedited payment
Paying a bill faster is just as easy as paying bills regularly using Bill.com:
- Hover over Payables and then click Pay
- Locate the bill and click Pay Faster. A list of options, with fees included, will be presented
- Choose an expedited payment option, and then click Pay
If paying by check, a tracking number notification will be emailed as soon as it becomes available.
- Overnight check delivery = $19.99
- 2-day check delivery = $14.99
- 3-day check delivery = $9.99
- Same day process and deposit (the earliest day you can select is the next business day) = $9.99
Canceling or Voiding
- Payments must be canceled by 12pm PT
- ePayments scheduled after 12pm PT cannot be canceled or voided
- Checks scheduled after 12pm PT cannot be canceled, but can be voided before the check has cleared
- This means that the initial debit from your account cannot be canceled. Voiding a payment before it clears will put a Stop Payment on the check.
Payments per Vendor will be combined when selected in bulk prior to clicking Pay Faster (this is to reduce per-payment fees).
- Note: The combine payment settings will be overridden when selecting multiple payments for a Vendor prior to clicking Pay Faster
If preferring not to combine payments per Vendor, then Pay Faster must be clicked after selecting each bill. In this case, the Pay Faster fee will apply to each payment.
