Payments you make through Bill Pay are delivered in one of three ways:
- By electronic transmission. Accounts that are paid in this way receive your payment through secure electronic transmission.
- By corporate check. Accounts that are paid in this way receive a check that is drawn on our account (deducted from yours as instructed) and mailed to the Pay To account address.
- By personal laser check. Accounts that are paid in this way receive a check that is drawn on your account and mailed to the Pay To account address.
Laser checks are sent when the biller is not setup to receive electronic delivery.
The funds are removed when the payee receives the funds on a date determined by you.
- With an electronic item, it could be as early as the same day.
- If a paper check is mailed from your account, it would be removed from your account once the item has been deposited by the payee and then received by the bank.
Receipt time would depend upon delivery method.
- An electronic item could be as early as the same day. Generally, they arrive within two business days.
- Paper checks would depend upon mail time – generally between 2 – 5 business days.
No, only business days will show as available pay dates. If you have a recurring payment that falls on a weekend or federal holiday that payment will automatically be adjusted to the closest previous business day.
You may change or cancel any payment that is in a “Pending” status. You may review your previously scheduled or pending payments in the “Pending Payments” box within the Payment Center.
You can set up “Reminders” and have the option to receive email notification when a bill is due, if a bill has not been paid by the due date, and when a payment has been sent. You can also view the status of recent payments in the Payment Center under the “Bill History” tab.
If you need to stop payment, please call at 1-855-712-0503. An agent will advise if it is possible to stop your payment and if a fee applies for the stop payment request.
A non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee will be charged to your account. A second redeposit attempt will be made and if that is also unsuccessful due to insufficient funds, then the account will be charged another NSF fee.
Account-to-Account Transfers (A2A) allow customers to transfer funds between their accounts from Austin Bank as well as to accounts held at other financial institutions. Account-to-Account Transfers require two test deposits to insure proper verification (See online demo provided for specific details)
Electronic versions of your paper bill are called eBills and you can receive them through Online Banking. An eBill comes directly from the biller to your Online Banking service. In addition, a notification that you have received an eBill in your Online Banking account can be sent automatically to an email address. You can view balances, transactions and other statement information in an eBill. (Each biller offers unique features associated with their eBill).
With eBill, everything you need is in one convenient location. Using eBill allows you to streamline your bill pay routine and have online access to your bills. That means you won’t have to keep track of paper bills. In addition, you can view past bill summaries at a glance.
If your biller can provide electronic statements, you will see an ebill icon (as shown below) next to their name.
Simply choose the account you want to pay from, enter the amount you want to pay, and schedule when you want the payment delivered. You may also setup eBills for automatic payment.
You will continue to receive paper bill statements unless you contact the payee to stop sending those statements.
Popmoney® allows users to ‘Pay Other People’ anywhere, at anytime, using only the recipient’s email address, mobile number, or bank account. It can be used through online bill pay, as well as mobile bill pay. A small fee is charged for each transaction.
Popmoney® payments can be sent to any personal payee (contact) within the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii; however not to U.S. territories, or internationally.
