Q Can I pay my bills on the weekend?

A You can set up your payments during the weekend. However, the system will prohibit you from scheduling a single payment and the first of a recurring payment on the same weekend. This is because payments scheduled for the weekend are always processed on the Friday before. Therefore, when scheduling payments on a weekend, the first day for which you can schedule payments (single or recurring) is the first business day following the weekend.

Generally, single or recurring payments that fall on a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday are processed on the previous business day and are debited from your account within two business days. If a bank holiday falls on either a Friday or Monday, the debit will occur within three days.

Q If I make an error in selecting an electronic payee and it results in a late fee, am I responsible for the charges?

A If you select an electronic payee with an address that is different from that indicated on the payment coupon, then you are responsible for the late fee. You always have the option to manually enter a different address for a payee.

If you select an electronic payee with the address that matches that indicated on the payment coupon, and I-Pay routes the payment incorrectly, then I-Pay will take responsibility for the late fee.
