Using Bill Pay
Remember the days when everyone wrote checks? You received a bill in the mail with a due date. You endorsed a check and then mailed it to the biller’s address, allowing enough time for your payment to be received by the due date. When the biller received your check, they cashed it and the funds were deducted from your account.
Basically, GTE’s online Bill Pay works the exact same way…but with major benefits!
- Login to GTE Online Banking and complete enrollment.
- To access Bill Pay, please click on ‘Bill Pay’ under ‘Additional Services’ in the main navigation. Once you are on the Bill Pay page, use the top navigation to ‘Add a Bill’ (this is where you would input your biller and account information), view history, manage bills, access Zelle®, view your account and update your profile.
- When you are getting ready to pay a biller, here are the steps:
- You reference your bill’s due date and schedule a payment date prior to your due date so that your payment arrives on time. The calendar feature will help select the earliest possible Pay Date.
- Bill Pay is like your personal assistant! You tell us what Pay Date you want, and then we make sure your payment is there on time.
Electronic: The vast majority of payments are made electronically, and funds will not be deducted from your account until your Pay Date.
Check: For payments that must be made with a check, GTE sends the check for you. Funds are deducted when the biller processes the check – just like a check you would send.
View: GTE will choose the best option between electronic and check payments based on biller specifications. Within the Bill Pay system, you will be able to view how your payment was made.
Best of all, your payments are protected by advanced security, unlike checks that sit in a mailbox that could get lost, and all payments are GUARANTEED to arrive by their scheduled Pay Date. If we fail to process a payment in accordance with your instructions, we will reimburse any late charges assessed by the payee.
EXTRA BENEFITS! When you pay your bills online through Bill Pay, it cuts out the paper waste and extra time it takes to mail in a check. You also save money. No more paying for envelopes, paper checks and stamps.
If you ever get stuck, click the ‘Help’ button next to the ‘Sign out’ button on the Bill Pay screen.
How Money is Deducted
Bill Pay works exactly like a check, except no more stamps and envelopes. Plus, GTE sends your payment for you! In Bill Pay, funds are deducted from your account when the biller receives and processes your payment, which allows you to keep your money for longer. Although you’re scheduling payments online, versus writing checks, Bill Pay uses the same familiar process. The money will only be deducted from your account when the biller processes your payment!
