Scheduling the batch payment

You can pay all your bills at once on a specific date, or pay each bill on its due date.

NOTE: You can sort the table by vendor name, deduction date, delivery date and amount by clicking on the column title.

1. You can select a payment method, deduction date and delivery method for every bill separately. 

A green dot to the left of a bill indicates that the payment is ready to be scheduled. A gray dot means that some details are missing.

Ask a vendor to fill out their payment details if you don’t know their delivery method.

Delete a payment that is not ready by hovering over it and clicking  “X” .


NOTE: You can’t schedule the payment until all of the information is completed for all vendors. To learn more about batch payment errors read this article.

Your batch payment is on its way. You’ll receive an email listing all the scheduled payments with relevant details.
