For some individuals, the task of writing checks to pay monthly bills can be a hassle. Fortunately, many financial institutions offer Bill Pay, which allows account holders the convenience of paying bills online from any computer or mobile phone with Internet access. After enrolling in the Bill Pay program, paying your bills online is easy.
Navigate to your financial institution's web page and log into your account using your user ID and password or account number and password.
Locate and click the "Bill Pay," "Pay Bills Online" or a similarly named menu tab. Select the account you wish to link to Bill Pay, such as a checking, savings or money market account.
Click "Add Payee," "Add a Bill" or a similarly named option. Enter the business or individual's contact information and click "Enter" or "Submit." Most online banking account's bill pay payee feature automatically saves this information so that you don't have to re-enter this data for future transactions.
Enter the bill amount and payment date. Click "Make Payment" or a similarly named option. Check your Bill Pay's dashboard to confirm the transaction details. Most banks list the transactions by date.
