  • Pay bills electronically around the clock
  • Includes person-to-person payments
  • Set up recurring payments for greater convenience
  • One convenient password to remember
  • Payments credited sooner than by mail (when using ACH)

What is Bill Pay?

Bill Pay is a fast, easy and secure way to pay bills online. Simply put, it’s the best way to manage payments!

What services does Bill Pay offer?

Bill Pay offers many services including, but not limited to 24/7 access to pay bills electronically, the ability to set up recurring payments and a faster payments credited rate for payments than by mail (when using ACH). Bill Pay makes it easy to pay virtually anyone, and makes life easier with payment reminders and eBills.

How does it work?

To pay your bills online, you will complete a simple process of adding people and companies you would like to pay. Part of this process requires the account number from your bill. In some occasions, the vendor will also ask you to put in their billing address (which would show on your bill).

Once you add your bills, head to the "Payment Center" where you will find the "Pay Bills" section. In this section, all of the people and companies (the bills) you’ve added will be available. To pay a bill, simply enter the payment amount and the received date in the section of the bill you want to be paid. It will then become a "Pending Payment". You can view any pending payments and payments paid in the last 24 months. You can pay as many bills as you want at the same time.

How do I know my information is secure, especially since I’m using an online service?

Bill Pay uses multiple security measures to ensure the security of your finances and information including SSL, encryption and automatic sign out. Find a list of recommended secure online browsers here. 

Why should I choose to use Bill Pay over other bill payment services?

Bill Pay is a more innovative technology compared to competitors when it comes to paying bills. Bill Pay is simple, secure and links with your Popmoney® account. In addition, Bill Pay’s payment speed averages the next business day (when using ACH).

What are the advantages to Bill Pay?

It makes paying your bills quick and easy since it’s all at the same time and in the same place. Not only can you easily pay your bills, but you can also request money from friends and family. Bill Pay makes organizing your bills easy with the option to group payments into categories. Automatic payments make it easy to pay recurring payments such as a car payment or mortgage. Most importantly, Bill Pay is completely safe; it’s more secure than mailing checks!

External Transfers

Do you have other banking relationships? Bank-to-bank transfers make it easy for you to send money to and from your checking and savings accounts, no matter where your money is.

What is Popmoney?

Popmoney is a safe service that moves money directly from your bank account to another person.

What are the advantages to using Popmoney, especially in today’s technologically advanced society?

Popmoney is convenient for all. Transferring money between friends is as easy as asking someone for their email or mobile number; and sending it right to their phone! They will receive a notification directing them on how to deposit their money directly into their account. The money is then deposited within one to three business days. It can’t get much easier than that! 

How is Popmoney different from other money transferring apps such as Venmo and PayPal? 

PayPal is done directly through the website and isn’t accessed through text. It also is a more expensive and slower service, at three to five business days per transaction. Venmo doesn’t offer direct bank account to bank account transfers, holds the money in your Venmo account and charges three percent on payments made via credit card.

How do I know my money and bank account information is secure?

Popmoney is a peer-to-peer payment service offered by thousands of financial institutions. Security measures are taken throughout the payment process to help keep your transactions safe. When signing up for Popmoney, new recipients provide a verification code when claiming money to ensure the email address or mobile number belongs to them.

What about fees?

Popmoney offers two deliver methods. These methods are free or low-fee features, depending on the method you choose. TS Bank offers the standard delivery method at a cost-free rate. We also offer rush delivery for a small fee of $1.50 or if you request money from another person and/or bank, we charge a fee of $0.50.

Why should you use Popmoney?

In today’s society, everyone is focused on convenience and what’s going to save a little time. Popmoney is a quick, easy way to receive and send money. This saves you time by not having to run to the nearest bank or ATM and worrying about having the exact change. You can set it up to pay for childcare, little league entry fees or split the bill with your friends or family at dinner.

How do I sign up for Popmoney?

Signing up is simple! You go online to your bank’s website and simply sign into your account. Click on “Pay Bills” and accept the terms and conditions. You can then select Popmoney, where you can start sending or requesting payments.
