Sync your Brex business account with other platforms



To best manage your company funds, you can link your Brex business account with various ecommerce and payroll softwares. You can do so by using your Brex business account details to connect from the dashboard of your desired platform. Other software cannot be linked directly from the Brex dashboard.


Linking an ecommerce platform allows you to make fast externally-originated payments to and from your Brex business account. Here are some examples of ecommerce platforms that you can connect to your Brex business account:

  • Amazon
  • BigCommerce
  • Braintree
  • Deel
  • PayPal
