Bill.com network

The Bill.com network is a collection of customer organizations and vendor organizations using Bill.com. Network connections between customers and vendors enable electronic payments between them.

Verified national vendors (Large billers) include water, power, cable, and phone companies and are part of the Bill.com verified national vendor network. The Bill.com network includes the verified national vendor network.

When you create a customer or vendor using the Bill.com web app, the system automatically searches to confirm whether the created customer or vendor is in the Bill.com network. Search results show any records that are a complete or partial match with the name or address.
