Pay vendors with unmatched speed and accuracy.

Don’t let manual vendor payments hold you back.

Managing and paying vendors is still painfully manual and paper-based for many businesses. Using disparate systems to budget, track, and approve spend is all too common and leaves finance teams scrambling at month-end to reconcile payments. Not to mention that 81% of companies still use paper checks and invoices to pay vendors, often resulting in data entry errors and late payments.*

Growing businesses deserve a better, more scalable solution for managing vendor relationships and payments. One that combines the speed and accuracy of the latest AI advancements with the control offered by modern payment methods like virtual credit cards. So that’s exactly what we’ve built for every Brex customer with Brex bill pay.

Streamline vendor payments and control every dollar spent.

Integrated with our total spend platform, the new Brex bill pay makes it easy to automate your AP processes from end to end and to budget, approve, and track every type of spend all in one place — something unique to Brex’s AI-powered spend platform.

Our bill pay solution automates bill drafting, PO matching, and multi-level approvals, saving your AP team hours each month with greater accuracy. With Brex bill pay, you also get complete flexibility and control over how you fund payments – by ACH, check, or wire from any bank account. As always, a Brex business account is the fastest way to make payments and is available for free with up to $6M in FDIC coverage in Brex's Essentials plan.

Onboard vendors faster and more accurately.

We know vendor relationships matter, so Brex bill pay also makes vendor onboarding easier and more accurate. It’s as easy as emailing vendors a secure link to self-onboard, where they can enter their payee details such as account and routing numbers. Say goodbye to manual data entry and the risk of human error and hello to accurate payment details and simplified payments at scale. Only with Brex.

Automate bill drafting with 10x greater accuracy.

Companies that use Brex bill pay’s invoice-capture technology are saving hours each month with up to a 10x lower error rate compared to manual entry. To import invoices to bill pay, simply forward the invoice by email, have your vendor email it directly to your Brex inbox, or drag-and-drop it in Brex. Brex uses OCR technology to scan data from your invoices and populate all required details — with a 95% accuracy rate.

Automatically match invoices to the right POs.

Brex AI will also match your imported invoice to an open PO in your ERP via our two-way accounting integrations, helping to simplify the procure-to-pay process and further automate accounting.

Brex customers process hundreds of invoices every week and rely on PO matching to help prevent fraud and automate compliance. If Brex AI can’t find a match, Brex will display the open POs associated with that vendor for manual selection.

Plus, AP managers can manually search for POs when processing an invoice. Just type in a few characters or the vendor name, and Brex will surface key PO inputs like PO number, date, and amount for AP Manager review. If a PO already has some spending attributed to it, Brex will surface the remaining amount available. Brex customers report massive gains in efficiency by streamlining this process, rather than having to manage them separately.
