Melio.me enables businesses to request and receive payments from other businesses quickly and easily for free. In just minutes, vendors, distributors, and suppliers can create a custom and secure pay-page so their customers can pay or schedule a payment for any invoice with bank transfers (ACH) and credit cards, in just a few clicks. Then, all payments are quickly deposited directly to your bank account.
Melio.me is completely free for you to receive all payments regardless of how they're paid. Your customers only pay a 2.9% fee if they want to pay you with a credit card, otherwise it's 100% free for them too.
You can even create specific payment requests so that you can track when requests were sent, and whether they've been opened, scheduled or paid.

3. Create a payment request
In addition to using your business's Melio.me link to collect any payment, you can also create payment requests with the amount and invoice pre-filled to share with your customers. Payment requests are also trackable, so you can see when they've been sent, opened, and sent.
- Start by clicking on + button on the top left and then request or on the CREATE NEW PAYMENT REQUEST button
- Then add the request manually by entering details or by uploading an invoice
4. Share your link or payment requests with your customers
Copy and share the custom URL link you set up before (melio.me/yourcompany) and share it with your customers to start accepting payments. Or share a specific payment request with one of your customers and track the payment's activity.
Here's what our example Melio.me payment request looks like:
5. Get paid by your customers
Whether you choose to share your Melio.me link only or send out payment requests, your customers can pay you quickly and easily with free bank transfers, or charge their credit card for a 2.9% fee (for them only).
The first time they pay with Melio, they'll have a pop-up that explains how Melio works. Then they can click through and sign up for an account or just pay as a guest.
To pay as a guest, they can simply enter their email and verify it to choose a payment method and schedule the payment.
For payment requests, you can track when your link has been sent and opened. In either case, you'll get a notification when your payment has arrived, along with payment details.
