Basic Payables - Overview

The free Basic Payables account allows customers paying multiple companies to organize and streamline their Bill.com experience. Rather than having to log into multiple Customer Portals (one for each company) to pay invoices, business contacts, connecting with companies using Bill.com, paying bills, and more can be managed all in one place. They're also able to pay their bills using the Bill.com mobile app!

Differences between Basic Payables, Customer Portal, and Advanced Payables accounts

A Basic Payables account is the lite version of Bill.com Payables. It's ideal for businesses who want to pay their vendors without more advanced features, like syncing with an accounting system or running reports. Many of our features are only available to Advanced accounts. Check out the differences by account type in the table below:
