Important Facts for Vendors
- When clients or customers invite you to join Bill.com, they’re asking you to help them pay you electronically, rather than by paper check. Such payments are more secure and easier to track and manage. For you, signing up takes just a few minutes. Simply provide some basic information about your company and bank account.
- If you've received an invitation from your customer to be paid through Bill.com, the service is free. You can always choose to upgrade your account if you'd like to use Bill.com's full-service Payables and/or Receivables services.
- Bill.com must first withdraw funds from your customer's bank account before remitting the funds to you via check or ePayment. Bill.com will send you a notification on the day funds are withdrawn from your customer's bank account advising you of the upcoming payment. In the case of an ePayment, you will be sent a second email on the day funds are available in your bank account.
- For mailed checks, factors such as high-volume mail days, holiday weekends, and certain locations may impact mail delivery. Bill.com uses first class USPS mail to send check payments.
- You should contact your customer for detailed information related to payment status, terms, and timing. For privacy and security reasons, we cannot provide payment information to vendors.
