Send Green Bill Pay

Can I pay bills through online banking?

What is the difference between Payment Date and Deliver By Date?

The Payment Date is the date that your payment will process, or debit your account. The Deliver By date is the estimated date that your payment will arrive to your payee. (The Deliver By date is populated below the Payment Date.) When you're scheduling payments, make sure your Deliver By date in Send Green is on or before the due date that appears on your bill.

Yes, when entering your date, click the calendar icon in the Payment Date box. (This appears to the right of the date.) A calendar will appear. Hover your cursor over the date you plan to process your payment, or debit your account. In the bottom, right-hand corner of the calendar screen, you will see the Deliver By Date, or the estimated date that the payee will receive payment. When you are ready to select a process date, click that date on the calendar.

External Account(s) Verification: Before you can begin making transfers to or from an external account, the external account(s) you wish to use must be verified to prove that you are authorized to it. Your external account will receive a small ACH credit for an undisclosed amount. You will need to enter the amount of the credit in the External Transfer section of your Online Banking in order to complete the verification process.
  7. Establishing Transfers: After the verification process is complete, you may begin establishing transfers. You can establish one-time transfers, or if you want to set up a recurring transfer, you have a variety of transfer frequencies to choose from. You will be limited on the number of transfers you can establish per day and on the dollar amounts you are allowed to transfer.
