Q: How does it work?
A: Simply sign into online banking or your mobile app to access the invoice and payments system. After inputting your business information you will have access to create and send custom invoices to your customers, take payments, or use your personalized URL to email to customers or to add to your website in order to receive payments. You can keep track of your payments and invoices all in one place.
Q: That sounds great, but how much does it cost?
A: Sending invoices and taking payments is a free service that has been added your your online banking experience. Each time you accept a payment there is a small percentage transaction fee for each deposit item.
- The rate for card-based transactions is 2.89%
- The rate for ACH-based transactions is 1%
- There is also an option to upgrade the service to include Accounting and Reporting. The upgraded version is free for 2 months and then $9.99 a month thereafter.
Q: Do the transaction fees come out of my payment?
A: Once a payment is received, the money will be deposited into your account and a separate transaction fee will be deducted.

Q: Can I include the transaction fee in the payment amount to my customer?
A: You are fully in charge of the payment amount. You may choose to add 2.89% as the sales tax to be included in the invoice or you can calculate the fee and add it to the amount owed. This will be between you and your customers.
Q: How long does it take for payments to be deposited into my account?
