Can I add a DBA to my account?
Absolutely! If your business is operating under a Doing-Business-As (DBA) name, you will need to contact us to have it applied to your account.
What do I need to provide to have my DBA added?
In order to have a DBA added to your Relay account, we will require supporting documentation that verifies your DBA name. This documentation is provided by your state's Secretary of State.
If you do not have a DBA document on hand, your Secretary of State can provide one upon request. Please see our list of Secretary of State Business Entity Search Links to get started!
Why should I add my DBA to Relay?
If you're expecting to receive payments made out to your business's DBA name, adding your DBA to Relay will be necessary.
Payments will only be accepted into your Relay account if the payment is made out to your business name on file, the name of a beneficial owner on file, or a DBA name on file (if applicable).
Payments made out to any other name(s) not associated with your Relay account will be returned for your account security.
What if I have multiple DBAs?
No need to worry! As long as you have supporting documentation for these DBAs, we can have them all applied to your account so you don't run into any problems with receiving payments.
