A new embedded bill pay capability in QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Online Advanced
As part of our ongoing endeavor to explore new ways to help small businesses manage their outgoing payments more easily, QuickBooks® Online is launching a new, upgraded, embedded bill payment capability to U.S. customers using QuickBooks Online Essentials, Plus, and Advanced. Our new capability, powered by Melio, helps small businesses manage their cash flow by giving them more flexibility to pay bills directly from QuickBooks and choose how vendors receive payment.
- Options to pay a bill: Small businesses have the option to schedule and pay bills right from QuickBooks Online via bank transfer, debit card (for free), or credit card (2.9% fee). By paying with a credit card, small businesses can defer payments and earn rewards.
- Options to choose how vendors receive payment: Small businesses can choose the method of payment a vendor receives: direct deposit or check.
How can I find this in QuickBooks?
You can use Bill Pay by Melio to pay any bill from your expenses page or by choosing any bill on your Pay Bills list. When you set up new bills you can also just click “Save and Schedule” to start the experience right away. Watch this video to walk through this step by step.
When will the new bill pay feature be available?
A small subset of QuickBooks Online Essentials and Plus customers have already joined the Beta experience. In the coming months, we will be rolling this out in a phased manner until all Essentials, Plus, and Advanced customers have it.
