    Horrible. Cannot fix a simple problem, caused by their awful software. No customer service. Takes a week to get a phone appointment. STAY AWAY. I will not work for anyone who makes me use them. Wasted close to two hours of time trying to delete a duplicate invoice, caused by THEM!

    Well, I liked them for years for my clients, but they’ve just gone downhill so badly I can’t take it or recommend them anymore. They keep taking away features to add others, and that’s just a crazy thing to do to customers who need the features that are taken away — basic features, too.Hate the new interface, even though I’m used to it. Tons of extra steps to get what I want now, nothing is streamlined. Have a 10 page bill? You used to be able to enter it using the first page and then click a box to include the remaining pages. No longer. Now you have to go back to the inbox and find the remaining 9 pages and attach them to the bill, which you have to search for. What the HECK. Found this out after an hour-long, extremely frustrating help-chat. SO frustrating.Avoid. You’ll regret it.

      I have been using this company for a few years now and they have reduced our credit limit due to Covid-19 without telling us!!! They are now holding payments to our vendors! I had a previously established credit limit which they are choosing to ignore. I urge you not to place your trust or business with this company!

      I don’t understand why this company does not provide a call support number. They don’t deliver what they promise, too may error in processing invoices and payment data, Very high fees and the support staff is non-existent in my case. As accountant I will not recommend this company.

      The WORST! Bill.com has done nothing but lie to me about their international payments. They lies about comparable exchange rates. They processed an international payment, showed it as “cleared” and then held it for several weeks forcing me to provide additional information on the payment. The vendor never received it and I have still not received the funds back over 2 weeks later. Be careful using their systems as they can hold your funds and really mess up your cash flow.

      I tried to set up this app for outsourcing my AP as a non profit. I connected my bank account and then it asked to self authenticate asking my ss and address info which i’ve done 50 times before. it somehow said i failed and asked me to upload my drivers license. …. seriously? who would i hack soon but bill.com. so i said no, let me re authenticate. they wouldnt let me. i spoke to a human after a week (why did it take a week?) and she would do nothing. terrible customer service. dont use an app that doesnt recognize when it’s authentication process has an error. bad service

      Impossible to reach customer service. In the middle of a billing cycle and can’t get support.

      Sept 9, 10:15 AM PDT Request support through chat (because no phone support).
      Sept 9, 3:49 PM PDT Five hours later, support asks me to clarify question.
      Sept 10, 6:28 AM PDT I clarify my question (I’m on the east coast and long since stepped away from my desk).
      No Response.
      6:33 AM PDT I ask, can somebody to call me on the phone, issue is time sensitive….
      No Response
      Sept 11, 8:12 AM PDT, I send a message, I’m still waiting, is anyone there…?
      Sept 11, 8:38 AM PDT, I send a message, is anybody there?
      Sept 11, 9:14 AM PDT, I receive the ridiculous email to schedule a call (text below). Next available slot. Monday September 16, 11:30. 1 Week to speak with someone.
      So to summarize, they ignore your text request for 3 days, and then give you the best option of a call 4 days later. Good luck if it’s an emergency. Who knows if the person on phone support will even be able to help. Guess I’ll write some paper checks for this billing cycle.

      “Hi Erin,
      I’m sorry that we haven’t been able to resolve this issue via email. I think the best option at this point is for you to schedule a phone appointment so that you can speak directly with a Support Advocate.
      It’s easy to make an appointment. Please click here and you’ll be taken to page where you can schedule a call for a time that’s convenient for you. A Support Advocate will call you at the requested time.
      Since a new Support Ticket will be created when you book the phone appointment, I will close this ticket to prevent any confusion. We look forward to assisting you!

      The sales department was excellent at convincing me (small non-profit Operations Manager) that Bill.com was just what we needed to streamline our A/P process, eliminate redundancies, and reduce errors, while maintaining adequate internal controls and budgetary control by donor. Several sessions of demo made me feel comfortable that the interface would be a big improvement on our out-dated Excel/PDF processes.And then came the sync to QuickBooks Online…Unfortunately, the Bill.com software autonomously chose which of our A/P accounts in QuickBooks should serve as the clearance center for the payables it establishes for all the bills entered. This choice is not part of the customization one can do when adopting Bill.com. We have an account that is used exclusively to track payroll liabilities that carry over between accounting periods–essential for timely accrual of expenses. Somehow, Bill.com decided this was our generic payables account (though we have a designated generic payables account) and dumped all our transactions into that account.At first, Bill.com’s help team tried to push the blame on Intuit for the way QBO works. Then, they realized there may be something on the Bill.com side that they could look into. After I explained my problem and the desired end result, they asked for screenshots of the QuickBooks audit trail ‘showing specifically where it says that Bill.com created the entry’ into our special A/P account. There is no such ‘specific evidence’, however, so they insisted maybe it’s an operator error on the QBO side. I assured them that the transactions originated in Bill.com and showed screenshots with user/creators who don’t have permissions in our QBO (so could not have entered things there by mistake).So, we still have an open issue with the online help team at Bill.com and my accountant is still upset for the mess this has created in her special account for keeping payroll accruals clean. I anticipated that reconciling the batch transactions against itemized expenses was going to be the biggest problem with the new process; that has turned out to be a minor headache compared with the sync of A/P clearance.

      Bill.com is a very convenient service. However, you can not reach a human if there are problems. There is no phone number. You much talk through a chat feature. This is troublesome because they have your banking information and all of your AP in their system.

      Bill.com has a major issue with syncing with QuickBooks. It’s been 1 1/2 months since the problem arose and no resolution. This is unacceptable. How can one run a business if its accounting software is not functioning properly. This is disgraceful. I wish they would fix this.

      Bill.com customer service is so bad and not easy to reach. I feel that we are stuck with this service and it is affecting quality of our vendor care. We use it through QuickBooks online, and I might dump QuickBooks online as well due to WORSE experience with bill.com. I don’t think they even deserve 1 star rating at all.

      I used to think Bill.com was amazing and would have given it a 5 out of 5 just a month ago. However, with the new interface update that rolled out in April 2019 I’m downgrading my rating to 1 out of 5. The layout is just so nonsensical and not efficient AT ALL. My company and I have used Bill.com for several years and it was so easy to use and made our vendor payments a breeze, but now it’s just absolutely awful. My entire finance staff hates the new interface. Nothing is streamlined at all and the way it’s set up now goes against common sense because the flow is just terrible. The bills and the payments section are broken out into 2 different tabs which is just useless in trying to figure out which bill matches what payment without making several clicks to get this info rather than a quick glance. Furthermore, there’s so much wasted space where the vendor details used to be when you opened a vendor profile. There are just 3 lines of vendor info and 90% empty white space which takes up half my viewing screen. Furthermore, I can’t tell if a vendor has cashed their check at a glance in the payment tab. Instead, I have to open the actual payment to get this info since the tab just says whether it’s paid or not. When I edit the vendor details, the country of residence is at a section on top instead of being grouped with the address info. Why did they do this???? When I try to set a vendor up for epayment, I no longer have the option of finding them by email, but only by their Vendor display name. We work with a lot of vendors where the pay to is the agency and not the vendor name and this just completely invalidates the ease of setting up epayments now. I’m going to have my company move to something other than Bill.com now because they have completely ruined user experience. I don’t know who the heck developed this new interface, but it certainly wasn’t an accountant. Steer clear!

        This is the worst software product I have used in 20+ years. I dread having to use it each month to do invoicing. First it took a month to clear my back (BofA) during this process I had multiple wrong directions from customer support. Now I am trying to send an invoice to 2 email addresses…nothing the help or anything else says makes any sense nor does it work.

        I was only researching the software for a client through Quickbooks Online. My client and I decided it was too expensive and there are other payment services that are more effective so we decided to not download the product. Today, however, someone from Bill.com called my client directly at his place of business and tried to pressure him into purchasing. He misrepresented himself by saying that he ‘works with me’ and that was why he was calling! It totally jeopardized my relationship with my client! I’m horrified by these practices.

        I have two companies that I setup on bill.com. I found out after using that this was not the service that helped me run my business. I have been trying to disconnect this service and have had a very difficult time with their customer service. All correspondence has to be done thru their portal and they do not support phone call support. I continue to try to deactivate both companies with the step by step instructions only to have a screen display that replies back and “We’re unable to cancel service at this time”. Customer service has been difficult and unsuccessful!

        This is a terrible product. First off, the cost is astronomical. I can easily print checks and mail them for the monthly cost of this program. Secondly, I didn’t send them a copy of my DL and now they are holding my scheduled payments. Since Sept 13. It is now Oct 2 and I’m trying to figure out why my vendors aren’t being paid. This is not Acceptable. If I knew where to go to file a formal complaint against this company, I would do so right away. I’m going to talk with my owner and see if we can get rid of this product.

        We’ve never been annoyed so much as we have by this company.Received an invoice and followed the instructions to pay it. That was a month ago, yet we get daily emails saying that it isn’t paid!Contacted the company that the bill was from and they confirmed that it was paid and even they got in touch with Bill.com and told them it was paid, yet we continue to get reminders we still have a balance.Would NEVER recommend them to anyone…horrible!

        I have received emails for over a year every Monday through Friday. My bill was paid a year ago but not through them. In order to stop the harassment I need to create an account and give them my personal information. Before I can delete the email, I must give them my banking information.What a disgrace !!I tried to call but am not allowed to talk to anybody. Only emails.The WORST website I have ever seen and that is saying a lot.

          We’ve had the same issues, except ours has only been a month.
          Now they’re telling me that I need to pay my bill when invoiced, which I did and the people we paid it to have confirmed that there is a zero balance.
          Terrible service!

          Absolutely the worst customer service I have experienced within any industry. There is no phone number or support of any kind. In dealing with a very important urgent issue, they offer chat support and demand personally identifiable information be sent to them over unsecured channels. No regulation over securing information. When trying to deactivate the account, they refuse to remove your information to include banking info. They just make it “inactive.” All your information is still in their system. So good luck if you use them.
