If the account balance permits, then the selected checking account will be debited for the amount of the payment(s) that you scheduled.

Therefore, the application will not permit you the customer to select a Scheduled Payment Date less than four (4) business days from the current date. When scheduling payments you the customer must select a scheduled payment date that is not later than the actual due date reflected on your payee statement / bill unless that due date falls on a non-business day.

Scheduled payments dates should be prior to any late date or grace period.
9. How Bill Payments are Delivered

Payees who have a relationship established to receive electronic delivery of payments by us will receive your payment information by a computer link. Electronic payments are generally received and credited by most Payees within two (2) Business Days after the Withdrawal Date. We may also send payments by a paper check drawn on an account we maintain for this purpose. We send all checks through the United States mail. Payments made with a paper draft are generally received and credited by most Payees within five (5) Business Days after the Withdrawal Date. We are not responsible for postal delays or processing delays by the Payees. Occasionally, a Payee chooses not to participate in the Service, or may be unable to process payments in a timely manner. In such cases, we may decline to make future payments to these Payees.
10. Future Bill Payments
You may schedule a payment for a future Business Day up to one year in advance.
11. Repeating Bill Payments
You may schedule payments for a fixed amount on the same date every month (a "Repeating Payment"). If the specified Delivery Date does not exist in a certain month, the Delivery Date will be the last Business Day of the month. For example, if the specified Delivery Date is for the 30th of each month, the Delivery Date for the month of February will be on or before the 28th of February. If the specified Withdrawal Date falls on a day other than a Business Day in any month, your Withdrawal Date will be the previous Business Day.
