About Melio

Melio is an accounts payable solution which allows users to pay bills conveniently online via bank transfer, debit card, or credit card. Melio supports QuickBooks synchronization and automated scheduling, allowing users to connect with their accounting system and schedule payment transactions automatically. Melio is designed for use by small businesses.

Melio enables users to pay vendors for free by bank transfer or debit card, even if they only accept checks. Users can pay by credit card with a transaction fee of 2.9%. Melio works in three simple steps. First, users simply add vendor or bill details. Melio allows users to enter details manually, upload files, or take photos of an invoice. Users can then pay by card or bank transfer. Scheduling tools enable users to schedule payments for whenever they like. Finally, Melio mails or deposits a check to the vendor’s bank.

As an online solution, Melio allows users to manage payments anytime, anywhere, via any internet-enabled device, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobiles.

It has been great overall: saves me a lot of time, great price point, and customer service has reached out to me numerous times to tell me about new functions and to check in.

Pros

The ease of use is incredible. I simply drop one of my invoices into the software and generate a check within seconds. So much easier than writing checks by hand. Melio has saved me hours in productivity.

Cons

I would like more integration into Quickbooks. Also, sometimes when you drop a new vendor's invoice, the software doesn't read it correctly.

Melio has an excellent customer support and resolves any issues quickly.

Pros

We choose this product since it seamlessly integrates with our accounting software. It also allows us to send paper checks without the hassle of printing and mailing them.

Cons

There is nothing really to dislike about the software with how our company is using it right now. I do hope for a much better interface and a more informative dashboard in the future.

Melio cuts down on the need for checks and you are able to schedule ACH payment for free.

Pros

It connects to QBO will ease. You can search for vendors or create a new one on the fly. Set parameters so the admin has to approve payments before they are scheduled. ACHs are free, unless you need it expedited. If you do not have the vendors bank details, it will send a request for them to enter it themselves.

Cons

I have not used the check feature yet, but ACHs take 3 days to process. I also have to manually record in Quickbooks desktop, as Melio only connects to QBO.

FAILED PAYMENTS NO RESPONSE from SUPPORT TEAM/NOT RECEIVING FUNDS BACK

Reviewed on 2022/01/05

Pros

This is an easy feature included with our accounting software. It's a great feature unless you actually need support which is where it becomes a nightmare.

Cons

Since the [SENSITIVE CONTENT], we have been promised a return of funds for failed payments to a vendor. As of the [SENSITIVE CONTENT], no funds have been received. In addition, I emailed 6 (SIX) executives twice imploring their assistance and no one has yet to respond. We have filed a complaint with the BBB as well since they have technically withheld funds since November.

I would highly recommend to stay away from this service until they can improve their customer support team and process.

Pros

Schedule payments in advance, so we are never late, user controls to allow the smaller bills paid that so not require my approval. Side benefit, saves on postage.

Cons

Nothing, much better than any banks bill pay.
