What is the difference between eBill and Direct Debit?

The payment date can be determined manually or automatically by the bill recipient.
What is the difference between eBill and e-mail invoices?
E-mail invoices are sent to the bill recipient’s e-mail inbox, waiting to be manually processed and approved. eBill invoices are submitted directly in the invoice recipient's E- or M-Banking, where they can be quickly reviewed and approved for payment.
How much does sending invoices via eBill cost?
The standard crossinx transaction fees apply when sending invoices to the eBill portal.
How do I register as an invoicing party for eBill?
Once you have registered with x zero, you can configure your eBill biller profile under "Settings > eBill settings". Through this registration, your company and bank details will be transferred to the eBill platform. You may decide whether the data is visible and whether you accept ISR direct registrations. Optionally, you can design a detailed company presentation under the menu item "Network Presentation in eBill".
How do I add a bill recipient?
Under the menu item "Network" you can use the quick link "eBill Look-Up" to check if known customer e-mail addresses are listed in the eBill portal. If the bill recipient has marked himself as visible for all billers, the registration can be initiated by you. Alternatively, bill recipients can register with you if you have activated the "Visible" checkbox under "Settings > eBill settings". Under "Dashboard" you can accept registration requests and find your eBill bill recipients under "Network".
How do I send invoices to eBill?

You are thus logged off as a biller from the eBill platform. A new registration via eBill is possible. Please note that you can no longer send invoices to customers who have actively registered with you via eBill. These customers must be registered again in your private network.
