Adding a bill to Settle is simple and can be done in one of three ways:

  1. Sending an email to your Settle Inbox

  2. Manually in your Settle Dashboard

This article will cover each of these options.

Adding a bill with Settle Inbox (Recommended)

Each business account created on Settle will have a unique Settle Inbox email address assigned to it upon account creation. This email address can be found at any time in the upper righthand corner of most Settle account pages:

  1. Simply click on the box, and the email address will be copied to your clipboard.

  2. Send or forward any email containing 1 or more invoice attachments to your Settle Inbox email address.

  3. In your account, you’ll see the Inbox menu item. The notification badge will update when you receive a new email.

  4. Invoices sent to your Settle Inbox must be reviewed before they’re added to your general list of Bills. Simply navigate to the Inbox page, select a message and attachment, and click Create new bill.

  5. After selecting Create new bill you can update or edit any invoice details.

  6. Attachments converted to bills will now show up in your Bills menu and can be scheduled for payment.

Tip: We highly encourage you to share your Settle Inbox email address directly with anyone who might be billing you. This way, you won’t need to take the extra step of forwarding the email to yourself.

We currently support these file types:

PDF, PNG, JPEG, JPG, CSV, RTF, plaintext, msword, excel, openxml spreadsheets, openxml documents, opendocument spreadsheets, opendocument text
