Bento Payment Methods

Updated 2 months ago by Chandrika Chandwani

Bento for Business enables businesses to pay their vendors quickly and have the option of initiating payments via:

Bento Pay™
Bento Pay™ allows Bento users to directly send payments to a vendor, contractor, etc., using only the payee’s email address. This eliminates the need to use checks or collect banking information, thereby fostering flexibility and security.

To make a payment, select Bento Pay™ from the Payments tab > Create a new payee or select an existing payee > Enter payee details and payment amount > Next > Review details > Confirm Payment.

After initiating a payment, the Payee will receive an email through which enables them to choose how they wish to receive the funds - via a one-time-use virtual card or a bank transfer.

Payees receiving Bento Pay™ have 30 days to accept the payment, after which the payment expires and the funds will be returned back to the payer's Bento account balance.  

Direct ACH Payment
Direct ACH Payments allows Bento users to send payments to a vendor, contractor, etc., via the payee's bank account and routing number.

To make a payment, select Direct ACH Payment from the Payments tab > Create a new payee or select an existing payee > Enter payee details and payment amount > Next > Review details > Confirm Payment.

Payments sent using Direct ACH will typically arrive in the destination account within 2-3 business days.

Only Business Owners and Admins with Full Access permissions to the Payments section can send and manage payments.
