Most scheduled payments are sent electronically and funds are withdrawn from your account on the process date. For electronic payments, the process date is the date the payment is debited from your funding account. For paper checks, the payment is debited from your account when the payee cashes the check.
For same day processing, be sure to schedule your payment by 2:00 pm, CST.
These are eBill payments you can make to the lawn man, babysitter, or any person you may owe by email payments.
All you need is your payee’s email address to send them an electronic payment. Follow these simple steps to get started:
eBill is a feature that allows you to receive and pay electronic summary versions of paper bills directly from your online bill pay account.
eBills are delivered directly to your online bill pay account. Once you set up an individual eBill for a company you do business with, an eBill comes directly from that payee to your account. Examples of businesses that offer eBills are cable service providers, phone service providers, utility providers and credit card companies.
To pay an eBill, simply choose the account you want to pay from, enter the amount you want to pay, and schedule when you want the payment delivered.
There are two easy ways to determine if a payee offers eBill. You can check to see if there is a "Setup eBill" link next to their listing on your online bill pay home page, or look for the "Sign Up" icon under their name in the "View Payees" section.
With eBill, everything you need is in one convenient location. Using eBill allows you to streamline your bill pay routine and have online access to your bills. That means you won't have to keep track of paper bills. In addition, you can view past bill summaries at a glance.
You can sign up to receive an electronic alert when an eBill has been delivered to your account. You can receive these notices in the form of emails or text alerts to provide an extra reminder when a payment is due.
Balance due, due date and minimum payment amount are included in your eBill. If you need additional details, there will be a link that lets you login to your account on your payee's website, or you can check your paper statement.
You will also continue to receive paper bill statements unless you contact the payee to stop sending those statements.
Payments are sent one of two ways - electronically or by paper checks. The majority of payments are delivered electronically. Your payment information, such as your account number, is sent via secure transmission. All other payments are made by paper checks that are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service that sends on your behalf.
