How does Bill Pay work?

Volopay’s bill payment process is extremely simple and easy to execute. There are two methods of making bill payments. One is non-SWIFT/local transfers to send funds in their local currencies. The other is SWIFT mode to send funds in USD to other regions. SWIFT refers to an expansive messaging network used by banks and other NBFCs to accurately and safely send and receive money transfer instructions. 


One of the most important components of Bill Pay is automation. Set up automatic payments to all your vendors from one single platform. With automated billing, you can keep track of all your future payments with our live dashboard. You can also switch from automatic recurring payments to manual business payments. Automated payment system comes with push notifications and email alerts to tell you whenever a bill is due or has been automatically paid.


Adopt Bill Pay software combined with a spend management solution for your business. From vendor and invoice management, automated approval workflows to accounting integrations.

Streamline your bill payment process

What parts of account handling does Bill Pay automate?

Volopay’s Bill Pay features a host of nifty solutions that take away the time-consuming process of manual data entry and workflow setup

Instant bill creation

Set up an automatic payment through one-click bill creation. All you have to do is upload your invoices to the platform and make manual data entry a thing of the past.

Automatic detection of duplicate invoices

One of the biggest issues in the bill payment process is duplicate invoicing which if left unchecked, can create a big dent in the company capital. With Bill Pay, automatically detect business payments that are either identical or too similar.

Automatic collection of vendor payment details

In case you do not know your vendor’s payment details, don’t worry! Email your vendor for their bank account details and will set up automatic payments when they upload the bank details.

Automatic approval routing with a full audit trail

Set up multi-level approval setups with real-time approval request notifications. The approval gets automatically routed to the next available approver or backup approvers in case others are not available. When business payments get processed, the payment confirmation and transaction details can easily be downloaded or exported to the accounting software of your choice instantly, leaving a crystal clear audit trail for you.

Multiple payment choices

Our unlimited virtual cards are great for setting up automatic recurring payments. You also enjoy amazing cashback offers of up to 5% on all FX transactions, making spending a way to save! Our virtual cards can even get added into your Google Pay app to do payments at POS machines as well. For vendors who do not accept cards, you can do cross-border B2B money transfers, remit services, and even set up automatic payments for recurring salaries of remotely-working employees.

Automated accounting - almost magical

Automatically sync your transactions to the accounting software of your choice, such as Xero, QuickBooks, Netsuite, Deskera, and MYOB. Unlike traditional legacy accounting systems, Volopay requires little to no manual data entry and integrates into your accounting software so well that you get real-time updates on expenses as they occur. The trigger feature helps you set up autofill information for any vendor, user, department, or card. Just fill in the information once and let our magical innovation do the rest!

How can Bill Pay streamline account handling better than manual accounting?

Manual accounting is a time-consuming and chaotic process and is highly prone to human error. Volopay’s automated Bill Pay makes business payments, invoice management, and AP workflow smooth.

Take advantage of early payment discounts

Allocate a certain fund value for early payments, set your expected rate of return and we will surface the offer to your suppliers based on all the invoices we have collated.

Audit your bill payments on a regular basis

Auditing your business payments is crucial in maintaining transparency in your accounting process. Instead of waiting weeks for manual data entry computation, simply audit your transactions. Gather all necessary documentation required to process a transaction so your accounting team never has to chase after invoices and receipts ever again.

Set up a proper workflow

Volopay’s bill payment process fine-tunes your AP workflow to run at optimal efficiency. Our advanced multi-level approval workflow for manual and automated Bill Pay adheres to company expense policies with real-time notifications for approvers and any employee expense non-compliance.

Use secure payments methods like virtual card

Our unlimited virtual cards come with a unique 16 digit number, CVV, and an expiration date, backed with VISA’s powerful security measures. Keep your company capital safe from theft and fraud by using virtual cards instead of your business credit card. Create one-time burner cards for trial SaaS subscriptions or recurring ones for necessary SaaS tools and ad spending. Earn cashback of up to 5% on all FX transactions!

Manage all vendor information in one place

A centralized vendor management system helps you keep track of all vendor data and protects it from getting lost or mixed. Our software acts as a central hub for your entire supplier database so you never have to enter bank details for recurring vendors over and over again.
