Say you need to pay ten different invoices, all from the same vendor. Sure, you can schedule ten individual payments, or, you can pay them all in one payment.
Save time, money and make life simpler for you and your vendor. That’s what combined payments are all about!
What’s a combined payment?
This feature lets you select the bills you want to pay to a single vendor and pay them all in one combined transaction. So, your vendor will see one ACH transfer or get one check for all the bills. And the same goes for you - all the combined bills will show and count as one transaction on your end as well.
Why should you combine payments?
Combining your payments comes in handy when you want to:
- Take care of lots of small bills from the same vendor in one payment.
- Save on transaction fees when there are any, like when you’re using checks or fast checks (remember that ACH-to-ACH transfers are free!)
- Make life easier for your vendor with less individual payments to track and reconcile.
How to combine payments, in a nutshell
Just check the boxes next to any unpaid bills from the same vendor you want to schedule a payment for. To make things even easier, the default setting is that unpaid bills are combined into one payment. You can control this setting from the “Schedule payments” screen. Be sure to read the full help center article for a more detailed guide.
