Hi there, vincenzo.

 

I'm here to provide you some insights about payments with contractors/vendors. One way to save time by making a vendor payment is through Online Bill Pay. Bill Pay online is a third-party app that has a feature to pay your vendor using direct debit. Let me show you how to enable this feature.

 

  1. Log in your QuickBooks Online.
  2. Go to the Hamburger icon and select + New tab.
  3. Under Vendors, select Pay Bills Online.

 

Here's how to add a direct debit for a vendor:

  1. Login to your QuickBooks Online account.
  2. On the dashboard, select the Bill pay online widget.
  3. Navigate to the Make a payment tab.
  4. Enter payment information for the vendor.
  5. Choose the Delivery method.
  6. Pick Bank transfer or Check.
  7. Select Review and submit.
  8. Click Submit payment.

Hi! Thank you for those details.

 

In regards to direct debit for a vendor/contractor, on my Dashboard I do not see the 'Bill Pay Online' widget. Is that normal? If not, how do I activate that icon?

 

Thanks

Thanks for getting back to us, @vincenzo.

 

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), the Bill Pay Online widget will show in the Dashboard if you've already signed up for the Online Bill Pay itself. If you haven't yet, here's how to do it:

 

  1. Log into QBO, then go to Online Bill Pay Learn More page.
  2. Select Get Started and enter your company information, then select Next.
  3. Follow the on-screen instruction to connect our bank account.
  4. Click Open, then Next.
  5. Enter your personal information and tick Next.
  6. Finally, answer a few identity check questions to complete the process.

 

For more information, consider checking out this article: Sign up for Online Bill Pay.

 

Once done, you can follow the steps shared by my colleague above to pay contractors using direct debit. Just in case, I'll add these articles for future reference:
