Enrolling in Bill Pay

How to Use Online Bill Pay

January 17, 2024
by Team SESLOC

Bill Pay is a secure and convenient service that enables you to receive, view, and pay your bills from one centralized place. You can use Bill Pay to send money to anyone in the United States that you would normally pay by check, automatic debit, or cash. Bill Pay sends payments electronically when possible, but if the biller can’t accept electronic payments, the service will print and mail a check for you. Plus, Bill Pay payments are guaranteed — if you schedule your payment according to the terms and conditions of the service and it arrives late, any late charges up to $50 will be covered by SESLOC.


Enroll in Bill Pay

Enrolling in Bill Pay

To get started, select Pay My Bills from the Menu bar.

The first time you attempt to access the bill pay section of online banking, you will be prompted to confirm your enrollment by selecting Get Started and agreeing to the terms and conditions. And that’s it! You’re ready to start using Bill Pay. 

Adding Billers in Bill Pay

Your billers can include any merchant, biller, or individual. On the Pay My Bills tab, select Add a Biller.

Adding a Company

Many national and local billers are linked to Bill Pay. Use the search bar to find and select them. If your billing company is represented, you just have to select it from the list and enter your Account Number to add them to your contacts.

You can also manually enter a company not listed on the Company tab by providing the Company’s name, address, telephone number, and your account number.

Double check that your account number is correct — inaccurate information can delay or prevent your payment, and late fees, finance charges, or service disconnections may result.

Adding an Individual

You can also add individuals in case you need to pay a friend, family member, or a service provider like a babysitter. To add an individual, click the Person tab and enter their name, address, and phone number.

Editing or Deleting Billers in Bill Pay

You can edit or delete a biller’s details by selecting them on the Pay My Bills tab.

Enrolling in eBills

Some billers can even send your bills electronically directly to Bill Pay.

Here’s how it works: Companies that offer eBills will display an option for you to request the service through Bill Pay when you select the contact on the Pay Bills tab:

Get eBills

Your request will process and you will start receiving your eBill with a month or so depending on the billing cycle. Please note that some companies will stop sending paper bills once eBilling is active. Once your eBills are established, you can set up Autopay.

You can elect to stop receiving eBills at any time. Once you cancel your eBills, any scheduled automatic payments will be cancelled. It may take one or two billing cycles before the company stops sending eBills, and it may take one billing cycle before you start receiving paper bills again.

After you cancel an eBill, you can still pay the bill through Bill Pay but you won’t be able to access the bill online.

Scheduling Payments in Bill Pay

Scheduling a Payment

  1. On the Pay Bills tab, select the Pay button next to the contact you wish to pay.
  2. Enter the amount.
  3. Enter the delivery date. Bill Pay uses a “Due Date Focus” which means you select the date you wish for the check to arrive to the biller. Please note:
    • Standard delivery is free, but there is a fee for next day Rush Delivery. Any fees will be displayed at date selection.
    • Payments are made electronically whenever possible, but if the biller cannot accept an electronic payment, a paper check is printed and mailed. Electronic payments are typically delivered within one to three business days, and mailed paper checks typically take between three to five business days.
  4. If you have multiple checking accounts linked to your Bill Pay, you will be able to select which account to pay from the drop down.
  5. Input a memo if you wish to have it printed on the check.
  6. Click Pay to review your payment and make any corrections.
