Enter Payee info

If you selected a payee in the last menu, their billing information will automatically populate in the "Add Payee" section. If the payee is not on the list, enter their billing information in the form shown below. Finish by entering your account number with this payee, and other information at the bottom of the form.

Make a payment

After you have added your bill payees, making a payment is fast and easy. In the "Make a Payment" section, you can pay multiple bills at the same time! For each payee, add the following information:

  • The account you want the funds to come from
  • The amount you want to pay
  • The date you would like funds withdrawn to make the payment (note that you should select a date that will have an estimated delivery before the payment is due)
  • The frequency of a bill pay (select one from the list of options)

When you have entered all the payments you want to make, click "submit" at the bottom of the screen.
