What account types can accept ePayments?
There are 2 account types you can have to accept ePayments:
Subscription-free Basic Receivables account: an account with no monthly fee that can only accept or send payments to Advanced Bill.com accounts connected via Payment Network ID through the Bill.com network.
Advanced account: an account where you pay a monthly fee and have access to additional features (sync with accounting software, accept credit card payments, send automatic payment reminders and set up Auto Charge) and the ability to accept payments from more people and businesses, regardless of account type or network connection status.
Benefits of using Bill.com for your Account Receivables payments
For Advanced accounts:
Low, flat transaction fee —most card providers take a percentage of the payment amount for their fees. Instead, we assess a flat transaction fee and we separate out your billing statement to make bank reconciliation easy.
Accept payments from anyone—simply create and send an invoice, and your customer can pay you through your unique customer portal web address that's shown on your invoice, whether they have a Bill.com account or not.
Auto Charge automatically pulls your payments from your customer’s bank account or credit card, so your invoices get paid on time, every time. Learn more about Auto Charge here. Auto Charge for customers
No manual entry—the system automatically applies payments to your invoices and can sync back to your accounting software.
Direct deposit—you can set up one default bank account to receive deposits, and we deposit your money within 3 business days.
Control—you can see all payments received/scheduled, and require your customer to contact you before they can change/delete bank account or credit card information in their account.
