A. You can pay virtually any business or individual with a mailing address within the United States and Puerto Rico. For example, you can pay utilities, cable bills or credit cards, or individuals such as a landlord, babysitter or relative.
A. Murphy-Wall Online Bill Pay is a service that allows you to pay virtually anyone or any company through your online banking account. You determine who you want to pay, when you want to make the payment and which account you want the payment to come from. It’s safe, secure and easy to use.
A. Bill payments that have not been processed can be cancelled through your Bill Pay tab in online banking. If the payment has been processed, we may be able to place a stop payment on your account. Electronic bill payments posted to your account are not eligible for stop payment. Contact us at 1-877-358-6554 during regular business hours to inquire about stop payments or submit a Stop Payment form from the Support tab in your online banking. Forms submitted through internet banking after business hours will be viewed and processed on the next business day. Please refer to your Account Agreement and Disclosure for more details on stop payments and the associated fee.
A. Paying bills online is one of the safest ways to pay your bills. Murphy-Wall Online Bill Pay helps guard against identity theft from lost or stolen checkbooks, bills and statements. It also increases your privacy because only you can access your account information, account numbers and payment history. As a result, you maintain tighter control of your account with real-time access to your payments activity.
A. Payments are sent one of two ways—electronically or by paper checks. The majority of payments are delivered electronically. Your payment information, such as your account number, is sent via secure transmission. All other payments are made by paper checks that are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service.
A. Here’s a quick list of the many ways you can benefit from using Murphy-Wall Online Bill Pay.
Save time. With Murphy-Wall Online Bill Pay, you can receive and pay your bills online, all in one place. That means no more visiting multiple websites to pay bills or trips to the post office to mail checks. In addition, smart features such as recurring payments allow you to automate regular bill payments.
Save money. Paying bills online saves on postage, envelopes, late fees and checks. If you pay just 10 bills per month, you can easily save over $110.00* per year.
Stay organized. Your payment history is stored in your online account, so you won’t have to sort through paper receipts or visit multiple websites to access past transactions.
Gain peace of mind. Paying bills electronically means no risk of mailed checks getting lost or stolen. Plus, you can stop worrying about missing a bill payment when you set up reminders and automated recurring payments.
Help the environment by saving paper. With Murphy-Wall Online Bill Pay, there are no checks to write or envelopes to mail. That’s good news for you and the environment.
*Savings are approximate and based upon the average annual cost of stamps, envelopes and checks required for paying 10 bills per month.
A. You can sign up to receive an electronic notice to alert you when an eBill has been delivered to your account. You can receive these notices in the form of emails or text alerts to provide an extra reminder when a payment is due.
A. Balance due, due date and minimum payment amount are included in your eBill. If you need additional details, there will be a link that lets you log in to your account on your payee’s website, or you can check your paper statement.
A. With eBill, everything you need is in one convenient location. Using eBill allows you to streamline your bill pay routine and have online access to your bills. That means you won’t have to keep track of paper bills. In addition, you can view past bill summaries at a glance.
A. eBills are delivered directly to your Murphy-Wall Online Bill Pay account. Once you set up an individual eBill for a company you do business with, an eBill comes directly from that payee to your account. Examples of businesses that offer eBills are cable service providers, phone service providers, utility providers and credit card companies.
A. If you are planning to travel, please fill out a Travel Notification Form or call to inform us. Our card fraud prevention system may block the usage of your card when transactions are outside of your normal spending patterns.
A. Debit cards are issued every three years. The expiration date may be found on the front of your card. Example: If your expiration date is 10/19, then your card will stop working on November 1, 2019.
A. This is dependent upon the merchant and the merchant’s processor. Some transactions may be deducted from your account immediately, but others may take three or more days. Pending transactions indicate that your purchase is in the process of being completed but have not yet been finalized. A Hold for the amount of the purchase will be placed on your account to ensure that the funds will be available when the transaction has been completed.
A. Choosing to run your card as credit processes your transaction through the VISA system and allows a limit of $1,500.00 per day subject to your Available Balance. Running a transaction as credit does not mean that you have a credit card. The purchase amount is taken from your checking account.
A. You may withdraw up to $500.00 from an ATM per day by using your 4 digit PIN. Up to $1,500.00 in goods and services may be purchased per day. Note: Limits are subject to the Available Balance in your checking account at the time of purchase.
