Your credit union will be launching a new, enhanced, online bill pay. Our new system will include features that will make this valuable tool even better, including:
In order to roll out the enhanced version, the current ItsMe247 bill pay site will shut down for a short period beginning July 19, 2016 and ending July 20, 2016. During this time the site will not be accessible. Please plan accordingly and review the guide below for more details.
1) Document your current payees, including your account number, payee name, contact information, etc. Watch this video learn how to obtain your payee data.
2) Note the dates of the system upgrade:
3) Call, email or visit your local branch for any questions or concerns regarding the upgrade: St. Paul office 651-765.4132 or the St. Cloud Office 320.251.3971.
YES. Our upgraded system is easy to navigate, allowing you to quickly enter payees.
Record your current payees prior to the upgrade:
We have created a payee data collection form (PDF) which will allow you to record your payee information. If you are interested, you can use our collection form to record your current billers. To record a list of your billers, you must login to the current bill pay system no later than July 18, 2016.
Follow these simple steps to obtain your Payee Information, or view the video above.
YES. While you will not have access to bill pay for a short period of time, your scheduled payments will process during our upgrade window. We encourage you to complete the payee data collection form (PDF) to ensure you can verify your scheduled payments post upgrade.
NOTE: If your payment is scheduled to be delivered on or before July 18, 2016, your payment will be scheduled to process. If your payment is scheduled after July 18, 2016, you will need to log in and reschedule the payment using the new system.
NO. If reoccurring payments are scheduled after July 19, 2016, you will need to reschedule the payments using the new system.
NO. Your payment history will not be able to be carried forward into our upgraded system. If you want your payment history you must download or print out this information prior toJuly 18, 2016. After this date your payment history will no longer be available. To download your bill pay data, please follow these steps:
With the current bill pay system, your payment could be sent as a member draft check, corporate check, or an electronic payment. The new system will no longer send a corporate check from your account.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT CHANGE! – You will no longer select the ‘deliver by’ date when scheduling payments. The new system will ask you what day you want to ‘send’ your payment. Here is an example of the difference:
Current Method: You would schedule a payment to be delivered by 08/12/16. The bill pay system will then send your payment prior to the payment date so that your payment would arrive by said date.
New Method: You will pick the day that you want your payment to be processed. You will notice that we will display the estimated delivery date for your convenience. If your payment is due by 08/12/16, you would need to login before your due date and schedule your payment.
Electronic Payment – You would need to send on or before 08/11/16.
Check Payment – You would need to send on or before 08/03/16.
NO. Your electronic bill will not carry over to the new system. If your payee is currently sending your bill to bill pay, you will be automatically un-enrolled when we turn off bill pay.
To switch to paper bills prior to the system enhancement, you would need to login to your current bill pay account and un-enroll from the electronic copy. This should be done at your earliest convenience so you can work with your biller to determine your new billing preference. If you do not request an un-enrollment prior to the enhancement, we will be notifying your biller to no longer send your bill electronically to bill pay. You should contact your biller to confirm how your bills will be delivered moving forward.
When the new bill pay service is available on July 20, 2016, we encourage that you enroll in the eBill service to re-establish electronic statements.
The payment inquiry tool will no longer be available within bill pay. If you have a question about your bill, you can contact our member service department by giving us a call or stopping by your local branch.
We have two ways of communication with our enhanced system.
You will receive an email notification from our bill pay system. The communication will be sent by firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage that you add this email address to your address book to ensure that it is correctly delivered to your inbox.
ONLINE BANKING NOTIFICATION:
ITSME247 will display the same communication within the bill pay message center.
The Account-to-Account (A2A) feature will no longer be available with the enhancement. If you have added an external account for these transfers, the information will not be carried over to our new system.
We are excited to announce that we will be offering a Person-to-Person (P2P) program. You will have the convenience of sending money to anyone located in the United States by sending a secure text message or email.
The Person-to-Person program allows you to electronically send money to any individual located in the United States. You will not be asked to enter their account number and routing number. Instead – you will be asked to specify how you wish to send the payment. You will be able to send either a secure text message or email communication. With your transfer, you will enter a password that should be provided to the recipient. They will be sent a secure website that walks them through the steps of collecting the money you sent.
If you currently do not use ITSME247 bill pay you will not be affected by this upgrade. If you have been thinking about enrolling in ITSME247 Bill pay we recommend waiting until after July 20, 2016 to enroll so you can enjoy our upgraded system.
Electronic Payee: Merchant allows payments to be processed electronically.
(Processing Time: 1-2 Business Days)
Paper Check Payee: Merchant will receive a physical check in the mail delivered by the United States Postal System (USPS). (Processing Time: 7 Business Days)
Managed Payee: The bill pay vendor and the payee have established a relationship to better deliver payments on behalf of the member. The payment address is not displayed to member because the information is considered proprietary information to the vendor.
Recurring Payments: User-defined request for automatic payments for a specific payee. The member will define the payment amount, frequency, start date, and end date.
eBill: Payment (bill) information will display within your Bill pay Dashboard. This information will provide you with the important items such as Payment Date, Amount Due, and Available Balance (if applicable).
