To accept or decline an 'Invite to Bill' as an payment application contact.


After creating a new billing period, an payment application administrator can send an 'Invite to Bill to the payment application contact on a commitment. The invite reminds the contact to submit their payment application by the Open billing period's due date. The subject line reads "Project Name: User Name has invited you to bill." Payment application contacts can then accept or decline the invite. 

Missing your 'Invite to Bill'? Payment application contacts can create new payment applications in Procore. See Create a Subcontractor Payment application.

Things to Consider



  1. Open your email Inbox. 
  2. Look for the email message with the subject line, " "Project Name: User Name has invited you to bill." 
  3. Open the invite to bill. 
  4. Review the Payment application Details:
    • Billing Period. The date range for the Open billing period. 
    • Invited By. The name of the sender. Typically, this is the payment application administrator. 
    • Due Date. The date your payment application is due. Payment application contacts cannot create or submit a payment application in the Procore project after this date.  
  5. Respond to the Do you want to bill this period? prompt:
    • Click Yes to accept the invite to bill and change the payment application's status to Accepted. Next, continue with the steps in Submit a New Payment application as a Payment Application Contact.
    • Click No if you don't want to submit a payment application for the Open billing period. The payment application's status changes to Declined.
