Add a user to a bank account

After you add a verified bank account to your Bill.com account, you can nominate additional users to pay bills from that bank account.

Only users verified on a bank account can nominate other users to use that same bank account. The nominated user must have the required Pay permissions set by their role assigned before being nominated.

Roles with pay permissions include:

  • Payers
  • Administrators
  • Custom roles with at least the Pay approved bills via Bill.com setting enabled
