  • Receive your biller’s statement electronically with e-bills (login to your vendor’s billing site required)
  • Pay bills with a click with PicturePay
  • Set alerts and reminders for bills and payments to keep you on track
  • Create reports and search records
  • Send expedited payments when you’re in a pinch for time

Processing Timeline
Same-day payments are debited from your account immediately and sent to the payee for posting on the next business day. Paper payment (check) posting depends on the payee’s address and the speed of the USPS but should take 5 days or less. Same-day payments scheduled after 6:00 pm ET will process at 8:30 am ET the next business day for posting the following business day. All processing occurs on business days only. Future dated and recurring payments process at 8:30 am ET on the send-on date then follow the same schedule as same-day payments.

The system will not process an electronic payment if you have insufficient funds in your share draft account.** If you have insufficient funds at the time an electronic payment processes, your payment will be put on hold. The system will attempt to process electronic payments for 3 consecutive business days. If funds are available, the payment will process. If funds are not available, the payment will remain on hold. After the third attempt, your payment will be rejected, and you will be notified.

If your payee is not eligible to receive electronic payments, a paper check payment will be made on your behalf. Check processing procedures are as follows:

  • Checks will be printed on your checking account, starting with checking number 15,000.
  • Funds will be debited from your share draft account when the check clears, not on the send-on date. Therefore, check payments will be sent on your behalf regardless of your available balance on the send-on date. (This does NOT apply to electronic bill payments. See above.)
  • Checks can be returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF). Checks returned for non-sufficient funds incur a fee. (Refer to Fee Schedule for current rate.)
  • You will be able to place a stop payment on a check that has not yet cleared.
  • Check images will be available in “Recent Payments” in bill pay as soon as the check is sent. And images of cleared checks will be available in your share draft history in online/mobile banking.

How do you know which payments go by check? Look for the envelope icon associated with your payee. (The lightning bolt icon indicates an electronic payment).

The envelope icon indicates a check payment.

*Each bill payment over 10 incurs a nominal per-bill fee of $0.75 and is debited automatically from your share draft account.
**Automatic transfers from a share account or overdraft loan are not supported at this time.
