How are payments sent, and how long do they take?

  • If the recipient is part of our payment provider's electronic network (most large companies are) the payment will be sent electronically. It'll arrive within 2 business days after it's withdrawn.
  • If they're not part of this network, they'll be mailed a paper check. Payments sent by check should arrive within 5 business days after they're withdrawn. (That's generally a week, unless a Federal banking holiday happens to occur.)
  • When you schedule a payment, you'll see the date the payment will be withdrawn and the date it's guaranteed to arrive.

Are there limits on the amount I can send?

You can send up to $5,000 in payments per day and $18,000 in a rolling 30 day period. If you need to make a payment that exceeds these limits, give us a call at 888-248-0632 or send us a support messagesend us a support messagesend us a support message. We can help you find the best alternative!

How will I know if a payment check is cashed? Do checks expire?

  • If a payment is sent as a paper check, we'll send you a quick notification when the check clears. (This usually happens a few business days after the recipient cashes it.)
  • Payment checks are valid for 90 days from the date it is sent. This expiration date is printed on the check. If a check expires, it can't be cashed and the funds will be automatically returned to your account.
