Bill.com lets you pay international vendors electronically, making cross-border business payments just as easy as domestic payments.
By combining your payments onto one platform, you can save time with automated workflows and sync with accounting software. You can also save money by paying global vendors in local supported currencies with competitive exchange rates.
If you are a vendor outside the US and you'd like to receive payments from a customer who uses Bill.com, give your international banking information to your customer and they can add it to their account to send you payments.
