Pay bills faster

Sometimes a situation arises in which a payment needs to get to a vendor as quickly as possible. Instead of bypassing Bill.com workflows to wire funds or overnight a check, leverage the Pay Faster feature in Bill.com to get checks and ePayments to vendors quickly and reliably.

Once the payment timing has been accelerated, the account's bank authorized users will have access to Bill.com's expedited payment options listed below. When first starting with the Bill.com service, allow 4 banking days for both ePayments and mailed checks. After 5 completed payments, payment timing will accelerate (for example, ePayments under $5,000 will arrive in 2 banking days).

Checks

The scheduling deadline for expedited checks is 12:00 PM PT to process the next banking day:

  • Overnight check delivery
    • Overnight Pay Faster checks made on a Friday will be delivered the following Monday (or next available business day)
  • 2-day check delivery
  • 3-day check delivery

Expedited checks are delivered via UPS by default with tracking included, unless the payment is going to a PO Box or is a non serviceable address, in that case it will be sent via USPS.

ePayments

The scheduling deadline for expedited ePayments is 6:00 PM PT to process the next banking day:

  • Overnight ePayment delivery
    • Overnight Pay Faster ePayments made on a Friday will be deposited the following Monday (or next available business day)

Note: The earliest date a Pay faster payment can be scheduled to process is the next banking day.
