Save Time and Money with Bill Pay

Bills. The ever ongoing to do on our list.  It’s a love/hate relationship - love when it’s done, hate having to do it.  Putting it off only makes it worse with the added bank fees, late fees and interest charges. So why not get it off your to do list and put it onto your banks?

Most banks offer free online bill pay to their checking account customers.  Online banking allows customers to pay their bills online, set up automatic and recurring payments, transfer funds and a lot more.  This saves time, money and reduces stress.  No more writing out checks, or buying stamps!

Setting up an online bill pay account is simple and straightforward.

Your bank’s website will walk you through registering your account online, if they haven’t already at sign up.  With your most recent bills in hand, go to the “Pay Bills” section, commonly referred to as: e-Bill Pay, Bill Pay, Online Bill Pay, or some other similar variation.  Next, enter your payees - the people and companies who bill you. You’ll find the necessary payee name, address, phone number, billing account number, and other account information on your bill statement.  Contact information for the major companies will often auto populate with a simple name search.

Once your bills are set up, you're ready to start paying them.  Select your desired payment method.  One-time payments are good for bills that fluctuate, like utilities.  Whereas, recurring monthly payments work well for bills that stay the same, month to month, such as your mortgage or car payment.

To make a one-time payment, select the payee and enter the required fields, usually amount and date to send payment.  Be aware, however, that the date you choose to send is not the date it will be received.  The system should have an estimated date the payee will receive the funds, which is usually one to seven days out. One-time payments are a good consideration when your income is irregular, either in amount or in date received.

For bills that are the same each month, you may decide the automatic monthly payment is the best option. Your bank will pay these bills on the interval and date you specify.  While this method is excellent for avoiding late payments, you still need to monitor your account and your finances to ensure there’s money available for making these payments, or else you will be charged for insufficient funds.  

Be sure to keep a record of the transactions made - jot down the confirmation numbers on your paid bills, save or print the transactions.  For more information about online bill payments, check with your bank or financial institution.  

So go ahead, start simplifying and ease into the easier way to pay - Bill Pay today!
