Melio is a free & digital alternative to the tedious and expensive bill paying methods many small businesses are still using today. Some people call it a modern accounts payable & receivable tool, but we see it as a 360° payment solution for small businesses.
Melio's bill paying platform is designed to help small businesses pay their bills in ways that free up schedules and extend cash-flow. You can pay your vendors using a bank transfer or credit/debit card - even if cards aren't accepted. That's because Melio transfers the payment to your vendor's bank account or mails them a check on your behalf.
Melio is also great for vendors, suppliers, distributors and everybody receiving business payments. Melio.me is a free & easy way for vendors to set up a simple payment page with a custom URL that they can share with their customers to get paid faster.
Signing up takes less than a minute, you can get started here.
Melio currently supports American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Diners. You can pay using your credit card and Melio will mail a check or complete a bank transfer to your vendor on your behalf. If you're interested in paying using another credit card provider, please send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Melio doesn't charge a monthly fee, but only per transaction, and only for credit cards. When paying by credit card, a 2.9% processing fee applies to the payment sender.
