Set up AutoPay

This article applies to:AvaTax

Enrolling in automatic payments authorizes Avalara to charge all your Avalara services (including subscriptions, usage, overage charges, upgrades, and renewals) to the default payment method you provide, even if a different payment method was used before the new default payment method was selected. This includes, but isn't limited to, invoices for AvaTax, Managed Returns, Clearnine Cart, and certain Professional Services invoices. 

You must contact your bank to pre-authorize transactions with Avalara. You'll need an Avalara Bank Origin ID:

  • Silicon Valley Bank – 1911718107
  • USA ePay – 9000085010
  • Authorize.net - 1911718107

For legal information or to learn more about billing and fees, see Avalara Service Terms and Conditions. If you have urgent billing questions, contact your account manager.

Default payment methods

All new and existing unpaid invoices are paid automatically with the default payment method. You can change your default payment method at any time. You can't delete a credit card, but you can set a new card or ACH payment method as a default.

Remitting tax liabilities

Automatic payment doesn't include remittances for tax liabilities. Those payments are configured separately and can come from a different bank account than your invoice payments. This applies to Managed Returns, TrustFile, and Excise Returns customers.

If you subscribe to a returns product from Avalara, your tax liabilities are withdrawn from the bank account that you configure in those products. This can be the same bank account you use to pay your invoices, or it can be different. If you use the same bank account for automatic payments and paying your tax liability, this results in separate withdrawals from your bank account.
