To make a payment on a bill using Buildertrend Online Payments, navigate to Bills/POs from the Financial tab.

From the Bills/POs list, click on the bill number to open the bill.

Fill out the information including who is being paid, the title of the bill and the bill number (if you want to change it). And remember, the subcontractor or vendor you select must have permissions set for job access.

Once the bill has a cost associated and has been marked as Ready for Payment, select Pay Online within the Pay dropdown in the upper left.

After selecting Pay Online, you’ll see a payment confirmation window, and there will be a step to Confirm recipient info. Make sure the email address for the sub is the correct address for payment - you can edit if you need to.

After everything’s correct, select Next. A payment preview will be the final step before releasing the payment. If the preview looks good, hit Send Payment.

The default settings of the payment to your sub will require them to review and accept payment. They’ll receive an email from and can interact with their payment in one of three ways: a self-printed check, mailed check via USPS First-Class Mail or ACH direct deposit.

For additional information and to track payments, you can go to your Online Payment Report under the Financial tab. In your Online Payment Report, you’ll see a list of transactions for your projects and their status.
