Shopify Bill Pay lets merchants pay bills using their preferred method (credit, bank, or wire transfer) and enables them to select the way in which the vendor receives the payment separately (check, bank, or wire transfer). The announcement also states that merchants will be able to pay their invoices for everything ranging from inventory and shipping to advertising, in the US and abroad, as Melio supports payments to 100 countries.

Commenting on the launch, Matan Bar, Melio's CEO, and co-founder advised that they believe the collaboration with Shopify to help simplify merchants’ bill-paying experience, providing them with increased flexibility to assist with their cash flow and saving them time spent tracking invoices. The spokesperson believes Shopify Bill Pay will bring a new experience to merchants cumbered with managing their cash flow and inventories, preparing their stock for busy periods, and keeping track of each vendor’s payment requirements.
