What's the difference between accepting a payment as a Bank Transfer or a One-Time Use Virtual Card?

Bento Pay™ - One-Time Use Virtual Card

Bento Pay™ one-time use Virtual Card allows you to accept a payment without providing any banking information.

It is important to note the following:

  • This card information is only good for a single transaction
  • This method is intended for you to run the card information your own point-of-sale system
  • If there is an unused or remaining amount on the card following the first use, the remaining card balance will be returned to the Bento customer who sent the payment


Bento Pay™ - Bank Transfer

To receive the payment as a direct deposit to your bank account, select Bento Pay™ Bank Transfer from the secure payment landing page. 

Once you have submitted your bank account and routing numbers, an ACH transfer will be initiated. ACH transfers typically take 2-3 business days for funds to be deposited in the destination account.

The banking information you provide is secured and is not visible to the Bento customer who sent the payment.
