Pay Your Bills Online?

A new service offered by the United States Postal Service, USPS™eBillPay, enables you to pay and view your monthly bills online for a monthly fee of $6.00 per month for up to 20 transactions. You are able to pay anyone in the United States that you would normally pay by check or automated debit, with the exceptions of, state and federal tax payments and court-ordered payments.

The service allows you to set up a payee by entering payee information such as payee account number and the payee's address and phone number. Once you enter the payee information, you can make payments to the payee at any time. When you receive your monthly bills through the mail you can add those account numbers to your Payee list without having to mail in your statement or check; it is done all electronically. You are able to schedule recurring payments in advance, and can change the status of your payments at any time.

Electronic payments are debited from your account on the scheduled payment date you have specified in your payment account. Otherwise, funds clear your account when the payee deposits or cashes the check. All payments are processed through a secure site with the CheckFree Guarantee, so that you can be assured that your electronic payments are safe and reliable.
