If you've scheduled a payment and you believe non-sufficient funds (NSF) are possible, you may be able to cancel or void the payment.
Note: If the payment has already begun or completed processing, Bill.com cannot prevent the attempted debit from your bank account.
Cancel the payment
It's possible to cancel the payment before 2:00 PM PT on the banking day before the process date.
To cancel the payment:
- Click Payments out in the left navigation menu of your Bill.com account
- Click Cancel payment in the Action column on the row of the payment that you'd like to cancel
After 2:00 PM PT on the banking day before the process date, you cannot cancel the payment because processing will have already started. Bill.com will attempt to debit the bank account.
Void the payment
If the payment has begun or completed processing, you may be able to void it. To void a payment, your role must have Pay permissions, and you must be a verified user on the bank account originally used for the payment.
You must be logged in to the desktop website to void payments, you cannot void payments in the mobile app.
If you are going to reissue a voided payment, be sure to make any necessary changes to the vendor, such as pay to, address, email address, etc. before reissuing.
After 1:00 AM PT on the process date (once processing completes), you can void check payments. You have the option to void until the vendor cashes the check, or it expires (90 days).
After 1:00 AM PT on the process date (once processing completes), but before 1:00 PM PT on the banking day before the deposit date, you can void ePayments.
To void the payment:
- Click Payments out in the left navigation menu
- Click Void in the Action column on the line of the payment you'd like to void
- Voiding the payment won't prevent the debit from your account

How to resolve an NSF
If your bank account has insufficient funds and Bill.com is unable to successfully debit the account, we'll send account users with pay permissions an email within 1-2 banking days after the process date. The email includes the payments involved, the date of the payments, as well as a deadline and steps to send us a wire to cover the payments if possible.
- Read the email thoroughly for your wire deadline. We must receive the wire by 1:00 PM PT on the date in the email, or we will stop the payments.
- Be sure to send the wire to the correct account, specified in the email
- Forward the wire confirmation number you receive from your bank, to PaymentProcessing@hq.bill.com
We charge a $50 fee to handle insufficient or unavailable funds. We charge an additional $25.00 Stop Payment fee for each payment if we don't receive the required funds by 1 pm PT on the date in the email.
