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After funds are withdrawn from your account, we may remit your payments by electronic funds transfer, or if the payee does not accept electronic payments, by mailing a check drawn on an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.

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.
