Managing how your vendors get paid

When using Bill.com to pay your vendors, choose whether a vendor gets paid by check or ePayments. By default, all vendors are set up to be paid via check when first added to Bill.com. To pay them electronically, set them up for ePayment.
 
EPayments
 
ePayments have several benefits:
  • 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

Checks

  • 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
        1. On the vendor's record, hover over Vendor Details
        2. Click ePayment Info
        3. Click the bank account number
        4. Click DEACTIVATE

Note: Check arrival dates are estimated because once the check is sent we have no control over the United States Postal Service
