Basic Payables - Overview

We have a growing network of people who use Bill.com to pay their bills and get paid. It's possible that your customers pay not only you through Bill.com, but other companies as well. While they can log into your customized Customer Portal to pay only the invoices you send them, if they pay more than one company through Bill.com, they would benefit from a free Basic Payables account. 

 

What is Basic Payables?

The Basic Payables account allows your customers to organize and streamline their Bill.com experience, and get more out of it than ever before. Rather than having to log into multiple Customer Portals (one for each company they pay through Bill.com) to pay invoices, they can now manage their business contacts, connect with companies using Bill.com, pay their bills, and more all in one place. They're also able to pay their bills using the Bill.com mobile app!

 

What's the difference between Basic Payables, Customer Portal, and paid Advanced Payables?

A Basic Payables account is a lite version of Bill.com Payables, ideal for businesses who want to pay their vendors without more advanced features, like syncing with an accounting system, or reports. Many of our fantastic features are only available to paid users; check out the differences in the table below.
