Authentication

Syncing means that your bill information wasn’t readily available. Your bill should update within 24 hours.

If your bill is taking longer than 24 hours to sync select the “let us know” option on the syncing notification. This lets us know we need to investigate further.

 

Bills

Go to “add a bill”, search for the provider you wish to add in the search box, select the provider, enter your login credentials and select “verify”.

Your provider has posted additional charges to your account or a new statement has posted to your account. Our system is collecting the new balance due and the new due date that your provider is now displaying on your account.

Of course! We will never pay a bill unless you tell us to pay it. If you add your providers, but never schedule a payment, you will only receive updates on your bills.
Be sure you have bill notifications turned on so you receive email and/or SMS updates for your bills.

 

Payments

You can turn autopay on or off any time you want for any bill by selecting the bill, go to settings and choose automatic payment scheduling. From there, you can either turn it on or off. The default setting for autopay is off, so you must turn it on if you want your bills set for auto payment.
Don't forget to turn on/off autopay for each bill.

You can change your payment schedule any time. Select the bill you want to change, go to settings and payment schedule. You can then choose to have your bill automatically paid ten days before the due date, five days before the due date, the day before the due date, on the due date or when the bill is issued.
If you have your bill on autopay, the default payment setting is the day before the due date. Don’t forget to change it if you would like your bill paid on a different day.

For immediate payment: Select the bill you want to pay, choose a payment method and click “pay now”.
To schedule a payment in advance: Select the bill you want to pay, choose a payment method, click “schedule” and select your desired payment date.

Your bill will be paid by the end of the day on your desired payment date. However, it may take up to 24 hours for a bill to be paid.

If your bill wasn’t paid, check to make sure you do not have a message on the bill stating that your attention is required. The “attention required” message could be in place because of a declined payment, a problem with your login credentials or a problem accessing your bill to make a payment.

Your bill will be found under the “paid” section once it is paid. You will also receive an email and/or push notification depending on your bill notification settings.

If you schedule a payment, you can cancel and reschedule the payment up until the payment date. Once your bill is processing, you cannot cancel the payment.

No, you cannot make a partial payment on a bill.

Payments may show up immediately or they may take 1-3 days to post to your account depending on the provider and payment method used to pay the bill. There may also be delays on weekends and holidays.

It’s important to us that your bills are paid on time. If you choose to have autopay on, your payments must be made on or before the due date based on your payment settings. If autopay is off and you prefer to schedule payments, you must schedule your payment on or before the due date. If you forget to schedule a payment for a past due bill, we allow you to schedule the payment for that day only.

Your payment could have been declined for a number of reasons. The most common reason for a declined payment is insufficient funds. If your payment via ACH is declined, be sure to check that you have enough funds in your account and that your account number was correctly entered into Biller Direct. Please be aware that if you have excessive declined ACH payments, the provider may require you to use a debit or credit card for payment.

Your bill will be paid by the end of the day on your desired payment date. However, in some cases it may take up to 24 hours for the bill to be paid.

 

Settings

We highly recommend you keep notifications on for bill updates and important notifications. If there is a problem with your bill we won’t be able to notify you if you turn off notifications.
To turn on/off notifications, go to the circle with the 3 lines in the bottom right hand corner and select settings and notifications. To turn notifications off, move the circle to the left. The button will change from green to grey. To turn notifications on, move the circle to the right. The button will change from grey to green.

If you would like to remove your payment method, go to the circle with the 3 lines in the bottom right hand corner and select settings and payment methods. Next to the payment method you wish to remove, select the trash can.

If you would like to pay a bill with a different payment method, select the bill you would like to pay, go to settings and preferred payment method. From there, you will have the option of selecting a different payment method or adding a new one.

You will receive an error message if you are entering incorrect debit, credit and ACH information.
If you are attempting to add a payment method from a different financial institution, you will also receive an error message. You must use a payment method associated with our financial institution if you would like to use our bill pay feature.

We are constantly working to add providers. Keep checking back to see if your provider becomes available
You can also utilize "Bill Pay" also through your Digital Banking account to coordinate a check payment to your provider.

If you select, “fix now” we will direct you to your provider to login and complete the required steps to fix the account. Once you go to your provider directly to make changes, you can select, “I fixed it” and we will attempt to authenticate with your provider, present bill details and/or pay the bill. If you receive the “attention required” details and go directly to your provider without selecting “fix now”, you can select “I fixed it” after you make the changes with your provider.

The provider must have an online payment portal for bill pay in order for us to configure the provider. If the provider does not have an online portal we are unable to capture bill details and make a payment on your behalf.
There are also a handful of providers that we can’t configure just yet. If you request one of these providers, we will let you know why it can’t be added. We will also let you know once the provider is configured.
