Create your account
When your customer or payer has a subscription-based Bill.com account, they can invite you to receive payments as a vendor in Canada. When they invite you, you'll receive an email notification with the details.
To create your account:
- Select Accept Invitation in the email invite.
- Enter your first and last name, email address, and desired password, and select Create Account.
- Enter your phone number for Multi-factor authentication (MFA)/2-step verification, and select Send Code.
- Enter the code you receive and select Next.
- Select your account type; business, sole proprietor, independent contractor, and select Next.
- Complete contact/company information (all fields required) and select Next
- Add your primary bank information (all fields required) and select Finish.
- Note: be sure to add the EFT/ACH information for your bank, not the wire information
- This must be a CAD bank account, based in Canada; you can add another bank account later to receive payments in USD if needed, but all bank accounts you add to your account must be based in Canada.
All set! If your payer/customer has already created an invoice to pay you, they can now send payment to the bank account you added. See the sections below on how to create an invoice, track payment, or withdraw funds.
Add beneficial ownership information
As a licensed Foreign Money Service Business (FMSB) in Canada and Money Services Business in Quebec, Bill.com Canada LLC is required to collect beneficial ownership information under the requirements of the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA).
If we require owner information in addition to what you provided during sign-up, you'll see a step for this on your overview screen when you login. Select Get Started to provide the info, or select Skip to skip that step for now.
Important Note: you won't be able to withdraw payments until this information is provided.

Select Skip to skip this step if you already have an invoice.
Note: If you'd like to create invoices in USD, your payer/customer must create the first invoice in their account to select USD as the currency.
