How do I make a same day payment?

To make a same day payment, the payee must first be set up. Follow the steps provided in How do I set up a company or person to pay? To make a same day payment to your existing payees, follow these steps:

Step 1: In the Make Payment section of the Bill Pay Overview page, enter or select the Amount for each payee you want to pay. A payee that accepts same day payments has the (eligible for same day delivery) symbol displayed next to the Payee Name and the corresponding Delivery By date.

If you have more than one payment account, use the dropdown to change the Payment Account for the payment.

Note: Click Show Payment Summary to view all pending payments, the 3 most recent payments as well as the payee’s address and phone number.

Click Continue.

Step 2: On the next page, verify the Amount and click the Same Day radio button for each payment you want to make. Please note that a checking account must be used as the Payment Account to make a same day payment.

You should also note the Cutoff Time for making a payment that will be credited the same day. If payment is past the Payee cutoff time, it will be posted the next business day, as indicated in the Credited On column.

Category, and Memo will default to the information you selected when you set up this payee. To change these options, use the dropdown menus or type over the information displayed.

Important Information: Changes you make on this page to Category and Memo will only apply to this payment. To change information for all payments to a payee, go to the Payees page.
