- To pay them electronically, set them up for ePayment
- If we detect that a vendor has opted in for Vendor Direct payments, their payment method will be updated to Vendor Direct
- Save money - ePayments are much less expensive than checks
- Keep your vendors happy - ePayments arrive really fast, directly into your vendor's bank account. They won't have to wait for a check to arrive in the mail, and then make a trip to the bank!
- Environmentally friendly - save paper and carbon emissions by eliminating a piece of physical mail
Our network of companies accepting Bill.com ePayments is growing every day. When you add a new vendor, large or small, we'll automatically let you know if we think they already use Bill.com to accept ePayments. And for the vendors you've already entered in Bill.com, you have many options:
- See if your vendor already uses Bill.com to accept ePayments - we'll search our network, as well as our network of large billers, and display any potential matches we find. Just check their Vendor Detail page in your account.
- Note: An account number is always required to connect with any vendor in the large biller network
- Invite your vendors to join our network and get paid online for free (email address required)
- Manually enter your vendor's bank account information
Some of your vendors may have opted in for Vendor Direct payments. These vendors have indicated they prefer Vendor Direct payments in lieu of a check or epayment.
Bill.com Vendor Direct payments are a digital alternative to paper checks. They are secure and fast and best of all free to you.
Bill.com only sends Vendor Direct payments to suppliers who have confirmed that they prefer card payments. To opt out of this payment method, contact Customer Support to have this free feature disabled.
- To revert a vendor from ePayment back to check:
- If vendor was invited to create their own Bill.com account
- Unlink the vendor by clicking unlink next to Connected connection status
- If vendor's bank account information was added manually
- Inactivate the vendor's bank account
- On the vendor's record, hover over Vendor Details
- Click ePayment Info
- Click the bank account number
- Click DEACTIVATE
Note: Check arrival dates are estimated because once the check is sent we have no control over the United States Postal Service
