Information on your Home Banking & Online Bill Pay Account

 

Access Your Account 24 Hours a Day/7 Days a Week with Home Banking
With our BankIT Service, “Home Banking,” you can obtain the balance on any of your listed accounts (checking, savings, money market accounts and many more) on a simple consolidated account list. Your balance information is delivered with up-to-the-minute accuracy. In addition, you can check other important information, like your next payment date on your loans and dividend information on investments. Every account can display current transaction history at the touch of a finger, so you can keep your checkbook register up-to-date and your statement balanced.

 

Welcome to Online Bill Payment “PayIT” - the faster way to pay bills
PayIT is a new bill payment service offering an alternative to the traditional method of paying bills. Instead of writing the check and mailing the payment, you can handle all your payments automatically through PayIT. You can schedule payments to be made on certain dates utilizing funds in your checking account with the Credit Union. In addition, PayIT gives you a confirmation number for every payment and keeps track of your previous 18 months' payment history. You no longer have to keep track of payments made - PayIT does it for you.

 

How to Set Up Your Personal Merchant List
To pay a bill with PayIT, you must add the merchants you want to pay to your personal merchants list along with their associated account number. You can request any merchant to be paid. Once set up and active, you can make payments right away. PayIT does not make the following payments:

·         Tax Payments

·         Payments for other government obligations such as court directed payments

 

How PayIT Processes Payments
Pay
IT begins processing all payments scheduled for each business day at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time. If you need to schedule, change or delete a payment for that day, you must do so before 2:00 p.m., Eastern Time. Payments scheduled for non-business dates are processed on the next business day.

 

How PayIT Manages Insufficient Funds
If you do not have enough money in your account to cover your payment, the payment is failed and you receive a "failed payment" message when you access the MailIT system. The MailIT messaging service is an added benefit. You get an individual message mailbox in which to send private messages to our Member Services department and receive a reply.

Services

You authorize us to utilize Fiserv to provide the Services to You on Our behalf. Payment of taxes or court directed payments via the Service is prohibited. We reserve the right to refuse to make any payment and/or transfer. Funds will arrive at your targeted Merchant and/or Account as close as reasonably possible to the date designated by you in your payment and/or transfer instruction (Payment Date). Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Accounts and Services Booklet of Greenville Heritage Federal Credit Union, you authorize us, and any third party acting on our behalf, to choose the most effective method to process your payment and/or transfer, including, without limitation, electronic, paper or some other draft means. For each properly instructed payment to an eligible Merchant and/or transfer to a targeted Account, you will receive a transaction confirmation number (Confirmation Number). The Payment Date indicated by you must always be a Business Day (as defined below). If it is not, the Payment Date will be deemed to be the first Business Day after the date indicated.

 

UNLESS YOU RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION NUMBER, WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY FAILURE TO MAKE A PAYMENT AND/OR TRANSFER, INCLUDING ANY FINANCE CHARGES OR LATE FEES INCURRED AS A RESULT. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT THAT THE PAYMENT DATE BE ON OR BEFORE THE MERCHANT DUE DATE, NOT THE LATE DATE, AND, SINCE THE TIME FOR US TO PROCESS YOUR PAYMENT VARIES ACCORDING TO THE PARTICULAR MERCHANT, YOU MUST BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE PAYMENT PROCESSING TIME FOR EACH MERCHANT YOU DESIRE TO PAY, AND ALLOW THE APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF BUSINESS DAYS BETWEEN THE DAY YOU INPUT YOUR PAYMENT INSTRUCTION AND THE PAYMENT DATE. SUBJECT TO THE LIMITATION DISCUSSED BELOW, IF YOU FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES DESCRIBED IN THIS AGREEMENT FOR PAYMENTS, AND YOU ARE ASSESSED A PENALTY OR LATE CHARGE, WE MAY REIMBURSE YOU FOR THAT LATE CHARGE UP TO A MAXIMUM OF FIFTY DOLLARS ($50.00). IN THE EVENT THAT YOU DO NOT ADHERE TO THE OBLIGATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, OR YOU SCHEDULE A PAYMENT LESS THAN THE NUMBER OF BUSINESS DAYS BEFORE THE DUE DATE REQUIRED FOR A PARTICULAR MERCHANT, YOU WILL BEAR FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL PENALTIES AND LATE FEES AND WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SUCH CHARGES OR FEES. THE SERVICE ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR THE LATE POSTING OR MISAPPLICATION OF PAYMENT ONCE FUNDS ARE RECEIVED BY MERCHANTS. THIS ABSENCE OF LIABILITY, HOWEVER, DOES NOT PRECLUDE SERVICE FROM WORKING TO RESOLVE THESE TYPES OF ISSUES WHEN THEY ARISE. IF REQUIRED, WE WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING PROVISIONAL CREDIT IF PAYMENT DISPUTES THIS ACTION.

 

Limitations

Dollar Amounts. There is a dollar limit of $10,000 (or the available balance in your designated funding account, whichever is less) per Merchant transaction on your Bill Pay account.

 

Available Funds Required. All bill payments initiated through PayIT are subject to sufficient funds being available in the affected account to cover the payment on the Bill Payment Date.

 

Payees. Any payee you wish to pay through PayIT must be payable in U.S. Dollars and be located in the United States. Each payee must appear on the payee list you create within your Merchant Account listing and the account you are paying with must be in your name. You may not use PayIT to make payments to a federal, state or local governmental or tax unit, or to pay child-support or alimony, or to make payments to other categories of payees that you establish from time to time.

 

Payment Dates. If a payment is due on a Saturday, Sunday, or Federal holiday, PayIT will schedule the payment to occur on the first business day after the payment is due. In these cases, you should plan to have the payment initiated on the last business day before any of these days in order to ensure your payment is made on time.

 

Telephone Access. The following may not be accomplished over the phone: User Access Code changes (including passwords); setting up payee accounts; and canceling or modifying a Bill Pay transaction. (See paragraph entitled "Canceling or Modifying Bill Pay Authorized Payments.")

 

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY OTHER LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY, WHETHER CAUSED BY YOUR EQUIPMENT OR SOFTWARE, THE SERVICES, OR ANY TECHNICAL OR EDITORIAL ERRORS CONTAINED IN OR OMISSIONS FROM ANY USER GUIDE/BROCHURE RELATED TO THE SERVICES. WE SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE INSTALLATION, USE OR MAINTENANCE OF YOUR EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE OR THE SERVICES, EXCEPT WHERE THE LAW REQUIRES A DIFFERENT STANDARD.

 

Canceling or Modifying Bill Pay Authorized Payments

Bill Pay payment transactions with today's date for the bill payment date or start date cannot be canceled or changed once your PayIT session is terminated. You may, however, edit or delete these transactions up until the PayIT session is terminated.

 

In order to request a cancellation of a payment or change a Bill Pay transaction designated with a future bill payment date or a "Recurring" date, you must use PayIT and follow the instructions provided to you. You must cancel the payment using PayIT by midnight of the day before the scheduled processing day.

 

If Home Banking is not accessible, however, you understand the Credit Union will only accept a verbal or written notice to cancel a Bill Pay transaction if it relates to a payment designated as "Recurring" or with a future payment date. You understand that this notice is acceptable only if it is received at Greenville Heritage FCU, P.O. Box 2564, Greenville, SC 29602 no later than three business days before the scheduled date of the payment. If you call, the Credit Union may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to the Credit Union within fourteen days after you call. If the payment was designated as “Recurring,”, the notice must detail whether the cancellation applies to only one of the recurring transactions or all transactions in the recurring stream. There may be a fee associated with canceling a payment.

 

New Services

We may, from time to time, introduce new services or enhance the existing Services. We shall notify you of the existence of these new or enhanced services. By using these services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the obligations concerning these services, which will be sent to you.

 

Care of Your Security and Security Code

You understand that to have Home Banking access, you are required to acquire the necessary equipment, services and software. These include a personal computer, modem, Internet Service Provider (ISP) and Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer browser software. As browsers are updated over time, older versions may not function effectively for Home Banking. It is your responsibility to upgrade your browser, when it becomes apparent it is needed, to ensure that you can access the Home Banking system. These requirements are more fully described in the Accounts and Services Booklet with the Credit Union, the terms and conditions of which are incorporated herein by reference. You agree that you will not give your Home Banking Security Code or make it available to any other person. If you believe that your Security Code has been lost or stolen, or that someone has made payments and/or transfers using your Security Code without your permission, notify the Credit Union AT ONCE by phone any time during Business Hours or send an electronic message through Home Banking.

 

Your Liability for Unauthorized Payments

If you believe that your Security Code has been lost or stolen, notify the Credit Union AT ONCE as provided above in order to keep your possible losses down. If you notify us within two (2) Business Days after you learn of the loss or theft, your maximum liability is $50.00.

 

If you do NOT notify us within two (2) Business Days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Security Code, and we can prove that we could have prevented someone from using your Security Code if you had told us in time, your maximum liability is $500.00.

 

Also, if your statement contains payments and/or transfers that you did not make, notify the Credit Union AT ONCE. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.

 

If a good reason (such as extended travel or hospitalization) kept you from telling us, we may extend these time periods.

 

In Case of Errors or Questions about Transactions

Contact us as soon as possible at the address or telephone number described above if you think that a payment and/or transfer listed on your statement is in error or if you need more information about a payment and/or transfer listed on the statement.

However, if we need more time, we may take up to forty-five (45) days (ninety (90) Business Days for a new account), to investigate the complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will provisionally credit your account within ten (10) Business Days for the amount you think is in error in order for you to have use of the money during the time it takes to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your question or complaint in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) Business Days, we may not provisionally credit your account.
