Payments will be sent out to ensure that your payee receives the payment on the date that you specify. You should schedule electronic payments using the due date of the bill. Other useful tips:
- Each payment is assigned a confirmation number that you should retain for your records (remember that you can easily track and see history for every payment made through the system).
- With our Bill Pay Payment Guarantee, you can be sure that you won’t be charged late fees if a properly scheduled payment should be late.
- The Bill Pay system will display the first date a payment can be made at no extra cost. In some cases you can choose to expedite the payment for a small fee.
