First: How do you get fiat bills into Request?

In most cases, your vendors are creating and sending their bills to you using another invoicing tool than Request. So, how do you get them into Request?

That's simple: you can send all of your bills to your forward email address or upload them via drag-and-drop and they will show up in your dashboard. From there, you can view and pay them. To learn more about importing bills, visit this article.

How to pay a fiat bill using crypto

As with any fiat payments service, you first need to get verified to get access. The application takes less than 10 minutes to complete. You can start the application directly here.

1. Check if your bill is payable using crypto

Navigate to your open Bills on the Pay menu. Fiat bills that can be paid using your crypto will be indicated with a "Payable in Crypto to Fiat" label.

Fiat bills that are payable in crypto have a label displayed next to them

If you don't see the label, then the bill is not supported. Most likely, that's because the currency or country isn't yet supported.

2. Initiate the payment

Click on the bill and click on Pay Now. Here, you can see two options:

  • "Pay in Crypto": the default option for fiat bills that can be paid in Crypto.

  • "Pay in Fiat": pay the bill via your bank and mark the bill as paid.

3. Choose how you want to pay

Choose the network and currency you want to pay the fiat bill with. You can find the list of supported cryptocurrencies for off-ramping here.

4. Pay using your wallet

Lastly, click Proceed with Chosen Currency & Network to go to the payment step and pay with your preferred wallet.

Optional: enter a payment reference

In this step, you can also optionally enter a custom payment reference for most currencies. This payment reference will be shown in your recipient's bank account and can help them with reconciliation (what does your recipient see in their bank account?).
