Payables payment timing

Pay a bill

  • Enter details on the bill and schedule a payment (Schedule a payment by 4:00 pm Pacific Time / 7:00 pm Eastern Time, and we'll start working on it on the same bank business day)
  • The pay screen will always show an "Arrives by" date for ePayments, and "Est. arrival" date for checks
    • Check payments may take longer than 4 bank business days to reach the vendor
    • Check arrival dates are always shown as estimates, since we cannot guarantee USPS delivery times
  • Bank business days are Monday through Friday (excluding bank holidays)

Things to know

Weekends and holidays do not count in the banking world; if the process date selected is a bank holiday or weekend day, the system will automatically push the process date to the next available bank business day.

  • Example: If attempting to schedule a payment on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday), the system will automatically make the process date Friday, which is not a bank holiday
  • If a weekend or bank holiday falls within the regular processing time for a payment, the payment will be delayed, since banks do not operate on those days. That delay will be reflected in the "Arrives By" Date.
