Pay Today - Instant Bill Pay Processing

This product will be available in May 2020

Pay Today allows you to make bill payments instantly using your debit or credit card! Traditional bill pay takes one day to process and transfer from your account. However, we understand that sometimes you have to pay a bill immediately. With Pay Today, the biller receives payment on the same day as you send money using your debit card. No more stress in those emergency situations.

Pay Today is a sister product to the Bill Pay that you already know and love. Use Pay Today to streamline and simplify payment with some of the largest national and regional companies, and make payments same day. Use Bill Pay for the flexibility to make payment on any bill and set up reoccurring payments to avoid surprises.

Pay Today Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I already have Bill Pay. How is Pay Today different?
A: Pay Today is separate, but related to Bill Pay. Bill Pay is great to schedule reoccurring next-day payments, while Pay Today allows you to make same-day bill payments using a debit or credit card.

Q: How do I schedule a payment?
A: 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.

Q: How do I turn on/off notifications?
A: 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.

Q: What if it is taking longer than 24 hours for my bill to sync?
A: 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.

Q: Can I make a partial payment on a bill?
A: No, you cannot make a partial payment on a bill.

Q: I paid my bill directly on the provider site. Should I see that payment in my bill history?
A: The payment will show in the calendar when it is coming due. If you made a payment directly to your provider, you will not see that payment in the calendar once it has been paid. Pay Today only display payments submitted through this portal. Exit Pay Today and you will see the debit within the appropriate account in your account summary.

Q: Can I just receive updates on my bills and not have payments made on my behalf?

A: Select the bill you want to remove, go to settings and select “unlink”.
