How do I manage the funding source for Brex card payments?

Admins will need to choose a bank account to use for card payments during account setup. Payments will be made automatically at the end of your statement cycle, or the preceding Friday when the date falls on a weekend.

Once an autopay account is selected, we'll deposit and withdraw $.01 for validation. Because failed payments result in immediate credit limit reductions, it's critical that Brex is validated by an active bank account with sufficient funds. Please follow the steps below to ensure a successful validation.

Setting up your autopay account

To help us determine your company's credit limit, we'll prompt you to connect your bank to Brex during the account setup flow. Once your bank is connected, you'll be asked to select one account to use as your autopay account for card payments.

If you're unable to successfully connect your bank to Brex, you'll be asked to provide us with your two most recent bank statements, as well as the full account and routing numbers for the bank account from which you'd like to make payments.

In both cases, we'll deposit and withdraw $.01 for validation.

Important: To avoid any service interruptions, confirm with your bank that Brex is whitelisted for ACH payments with these details:
  • Organization name: Brex Inc
  • Organization ID: 7320517957 AND 8195391000
If you're still having trouble connecting your bank account, please refer to I'm having issues connecting my bank account to Brex.

Changing your autopay account

Admins can update their autopay account at any time by following the steps below.

Step 1: Click Settings in the bottom-left corner of your Brex dashboard.

Step 2: Under Connected accounts, in the Autopay account section click Manage account.

Step 3: You can select any connected bank account or your Brex Cash account if you have one. We'll immediately deposit and withdraw $.01 for validation.

Important: To avoid any service interruptions, confirm with your bank that Brex is whitelisted for ACH payments with these details:
  • Organization name: Brex Inc
  • Organization ID: 7320517957 AND 8195391000
Note: The next payment you make after updating your autopay account may take 3-5 business days to become available as spending capacity.
