When you add a vendor to your Bill.com account, you can immediately schedule a check payment, if you have a payment bank setup. Check is the default payment method until you either manually add the vendor's bank account to send ePayments, or you invite them to setup their own account to accept ePayments.
Vendor was invited
If an invite has already been sent to a vendor, any payment will be made via check until:
- The invitation has been accepted by the vendor
- The vendor has added their bank account to the account after accepting the invitation
Vendor bank account manually entered
If a bank account was entered manually for a vendor, an ePayment can be immediately scheduled for them with a process date 2 banking days in the future.
- Tip: If a payment needs to go out immediately for the vendor, schedule the payment before entering the vendor's bank account.
