Adding a bank account by manual entry

To pay bills or get paid using Bill.com, a bank account will need to be added to the Bill.com account. If you were unable to add a bank account with online banking credentials, you can complete the bank account setup manually by entering the routing and bank account numbers.

By default, the Administrator and Payer roles can add a bank. For any users with custom roles, the "Pay bills via Bill.com" permission is required to add a bank.

You should be a signer on the account, or have permission to authorize transactions on the bank account you are adding.
