Invalid bank account notification

If a bank rejects an ePayment transaction or a test transaction when adding a bank account, the bank account is marked as invalid and inactivated in Bill.com. You will need to check the reason code by following the steps below.

Contact your bank to resolve the code, and then re-add the bank once you have addressed the issue based on the reason code, or add a different bank.
