Should the processing date I give be the payment due date?
No. You should allow a minimum of five (5) business days for payments to reach your payee. Depending on the payee, you may need to allow additional days due to the distance the payment will travel. Remember, although you can schedule a payment at any time, payments are actually sent to payees only on business days. NOTE: Clients in Mountain Time Zone should allow 7 business days, Pacific Time Zone: 8 business days.
How are payments delivered? How can I ensure that my payment is received by the due date?
You may schedule payments to be initiated on the day you enter the information, on a future date or on the same date each month. Although you can enter payment information 24 hours a day 7 days a week, payments can only be initiated on business days.
After funds are withdrawn from your account, we may remit your payments by electronic funds transfer, or if the payee does not accept electronic payments, by mailing a check drawn on an account we maintain for this purpose, or by some other appropriate means. Because of the time it takes to remit your payment to the payee, they will not receive payment on the processing date (the date you instructed Online Bill Pay to deduct the funds from your account). Therefore, in order to provide sufficient time for payments to be received by your payee, the processing date should be a minimum of five (5) business days before the bill’s actual due date. Additional days must be added to this time frame if the payment is traveling outside of a 4 state radius. NOTE: Clients in Mountain Time zones should allow 7 business days, Pacific Time zone, 8 business days.

Why do payments take 5+ business days?
There are a several variables that must be considered. Although a number of your payees accept payments electronically, many do not. For those that do not accept electronic payments, we must send a check to that payee through the U.S. mail. Once the check is received by the payee, it may also take a day or so for the payee to process the check and post it to your account. Even for electronic payments, it may take two or three days for your account to be posted. Holidays must also be taken into consideration.
How far in advance can I schedule a payment?
You can schedule a single payment for up to 90 days in advance.
How soon are funds taken out of my account?
Bill payments are debited from your account on the processing date you requested. There is no float.
What happens if I don't have enough in my account to cover a bill payment?
If funds are not available on the requested processing date, your bill payment will be canceled and a fee may be charged to your account.
What is the difference between a variable/single bill payment and a recurring payment?
A variable/single bill payment is a one-time payment, such as your telephone bill, where the amount fluctuates each time. Or perhaps it is a payment you do not make regularly, such as a florist you use only occasionally.
A recurring payment is one made regularly for the same dollar amount, on the same day each month, such as your car or mortgage payment (at another financial institution). You need only to set up a recurring payment once in the system and access the system only when the payment is to be changed or canceled. Otherwise, your recurring payments will be made automatically.
If the payment doesn't arrive faster, what's the advantage of paying bills online?

If I currently have an automatic debit for a bill coming out of my checking account, should I cancel this debit and use my new bill pay program?
It is recommended that you NOT cancel any auto debit UNLESS your new bill pay program has the ability to electronically remit this payment to your payee. To determine if your payee is electronic with your new bill pay program, simply call the service and this information will be provided to you. Payees who have their own debit program will often times not ALLOW 3rd party processors to remit payments to them. Our main concern is that your bill be paid in a timely manner and safely. Some typical payees are, Insurance companies, Utility companies and Mortgage companies. Some other considerations….auto debits come out of your account on your ‘due’ date, therefore, you have the advantage of the float until then. With the bill pay program, your payment will be deducted from your account on the ‘process date’, which should always be a minimum of 5 business days BEFORE your due date.
Does the bill pay system offer a guarantee?
No. Unfortunately, we do not offer a payment guarantee. Once the payment is remitted, we are unable to control the posting cycle. We do, however, provide support for bill pay issues. In most cases, we are able to successfully have late charges and credit standings corrected for the end user. In the event EasyPay is at fault, a manager at EasyPay will evaluate the case and approve an adjustment to the end user.
