Adding a bank account with online banking

To pay bills or get paid using Bill.com, you will need to add a bank account to your Bill.com account. If you do not have the online banking credentials to add a bank through the online process, review the Adding a bank account by manual entry article (linked at the bottom of this page) for steps to add the bank information manually and verify the account setup through a test deposit.

By default, the Administrator and Payer roles can add a bank. For any users with custom roles, the "Pay bills via Bill.com" permission is required to add a bank.

You should be a signer on the account, or have permission to authorize transactions on the bank account you are adding.
