Get Started with Payments


Mailing checks or paying bills with Simple?

We offer fee-free bill pay that you can use to pay most bills. You can also mail a check to any person in the United States.

Payments take 2-4 business days, and you can learn more about the timeline in the Sending a Payment article. When you schedule a payment, you'll see the date the payment will be withdrawn and the date it's guaranteed to arrive.

Before you can start sending payments, you’ll need to add the contact details for the person or company you’d like to pay.

Adding a person or company you’d like to pay using Simple

  1. Click the Payments & Transfers button from your main activity page.
  2. Select either Pay Bills or Mail a Check.
  3. Hit the plus sign to add a new contact.
  4. Enter their name and address. If you chose Pay Bills, you'll also have the option to add your account number or a short memo. This will be included in every payment you send to this contact.

Can I send a check for someone else to my address?

Sure thing. When adding the contact, put the payee name down normally, and add a 'care of' line in the address space with your name and address. You can also send a payment ‘care of’ someone other than yourself. Here's an example: the check is made out to Daphne, and it will be sent to April.
