All SBW customers have access to the Bill Pay Menu within Online Banking. Go to Transactions and select Bill Pay to access this feature.  Already have Bill Pay and want to make some changes? Send us a Secure Message and we will be happy to help

Getting Started with Bill Pay

With Bill Pay you can pay your electric company, your dog sitter, and even make your car payment. With Bill Pay you can:

  • Pay several bills at once or make one-time payments. You can also view your pending and recent payments.
  • Receive some of your bills electronically. We can receive electronic bills from hundreds of billers nationwide.
  • Set-up automatic payments to pay your electronic bills or to automatically schedule payments of a set amount at regular intervals.
  • Review your bills and payments for the past 24 months

If you are paying a company, you will need your latest bill with billing account number, billing address, and phone number. If you are paying an individual, you will need their name, address, and phone number.

After you add the company or person to pay, the payee will appear within the Bill Pay Menu.

Note: Remember to keep your bill information updated. If the name, address, phone number, or account number changes, click on the Options link and click on Visit Bill Pay Site. There you can make the appropriate updates to ensure that the bill information is correct.


Electronic vs. Check Payments

The Bill Payment system completes a search of each biller you add to see if they are available to receive electronic payments. If the biller is available to receive electronic payments the Bill Payment system will send the payment electronically, usually within three business days.

If the biller is not available to receive electronic payments, the Bill Payment system will generate a check and send the check in the mail. If we send the payment by check, it can take 7 business days for the biller to receive it. However, the estimated time of arrival may vary based on the postal service.

When is the money for the Payment Withdrawn from my Payment Account?

If the payment is sent electronically, the money for the payment is withdrawn from your payment account on the pay date. If the company or person cannot receive electronic payments, Savings Bank of Walpole Bill Pay prints a check and sends it to the billing address. For payments processed as a check, the money is withdrawn when the company or person deposits (or cashes) the check.


eBills

eBill is a feature that allows you to receive and pay electronic summary versions of paper bills directly from your Bill Pay account.  To enable eBills go to Bill Pay and click on the Options link and Visit Bill Pay Site.

eBills are delivered directly to your Bill Pay account. Once you set up an individual eBill for a company you do business with, an eBill comes directly from that payee to your account. Examples of businesses that offer eBills are cable service providers, phone service providers, utility providers and credit card companies.


Person to Person Payments (P2P)

Person to Person Payments allows you to add an individual as a payee and send them funds via email or phone.  To use P2P you will need to go to Transactions > Bill Pay.  Within the Bill Pay page you will need to go to Options and Visit Bill Pay Site.  There you will need to Add a Payee to Pay an individual.


Stop Payments

Submit a “written” stop payment request to the bank by entering information in each required field. Start within the Services Menu and select Stop Payment. To place a stop on a single check, select Single Check. If you would like to stop payment on a series of checks, select Multiple Checks.

If you submit your stop payment request from within Online Banking, your request is considered a written request. The stop payment request shall remain in effect for six months or until written notice is received from you to revoke the stop payment order, whichever occurs first. You may renew the request when the six month period has expired by submitting a new stop payment request order. You will incur stop payment charges as disclosed in the current fee schedule for the applicable account.


External Accounts

To request the ability to make transfers between your account at another financial institution and SBW you will need to submit a request. To get started go to the Services Menu and click on the Add External Account.
