When you create a Bill.com account, we assign a unique Payment Network ID (PNI). The PNI can be given to a vendor or customer to connect your Bill.com account to theirs through the Bill.com network.
You must have manage customer or manage vendor permissions to connect via PNI.
Adding a Vendor or Customer's PNI
- Log in to Bill.com
- Search for the vendor or customer
- Click More actions
- Click Enter PNI
- Enter your vendor's Payment Network ID
- Click Search
- Click Connect & Pay
- Click Confirm
Completing the Network Connection
To complete the connection, both the paying and the receiving Bill.com accounts must have the other account's PNI in the corresponding vendor or customer details. This means that the Payables Bill.com account will display the PNI of the vendor's Receivables Bill.com account in their Vendor details and the Receivables Bill.com will display the PNI of the customer's Payables Bill.com account in their Customer's details. Email notifications are sent to confirm that the accounts are connected.
Once a vendor's bank account is verified, payments made from a networked customer will be made via ePayment.
