You may make payments on our Website ("Online Payment") through our online payment portal ("Payment Portal"). If you chose to do so, you agree to these Online Payment Terms.
You may log into our Payment Portal by providing the requested verification information. Once you have gained access, your account(s) information will show the original creditor, the merchant, account balance and any account offers that may be available. You may pay your outstanding obligation by initiating a one-time payment or enrolling in a payment plan. If you initiate any Online Payment through the Payment Portal, you authorize us to charge your debit card or credit card or initiate a debit from the bank account you enter on the Payment Portal. You represent to us that you have the legal right to use the debit or credit card you designate for payment through the Payment Portal.
- One-Time Payments: You may initiate a one-time payment through the Payment Portal using your debt card, credit card or by Electronic Funds Transfer ("EFT") from your bank account. You may designate the payment date and we will process the payment on that date. Your financial institution may have limits on your ability to initiate a payment. We will not accept payment for more than the full obligation on your account. You cannot make changes to a payment on the same day that the payment is scheduled to be debited. Any changes you make will go into effect on the next business day. We may also reject any payment if we suspect fraud, unauthorized use of the payment account or as otherwise required by law.
- Payment Plans: We may also permit you to schedule regularly recurring payments to be deducted automatically from your bank account on the date you select, or to charge your credit card. You may cancel these recurring payments by changing the settings in your account in the Payment Portal. You cannot cancel the recurring payments on the day that a payment is scheduled. If you enroll in a payment plan, we will send to you notices of the next recurring payment and payment amount via the method you have selected (email, text, or mail). On occasion, we may determine that you are no longer eligible to participate in recurring payment plans and we reserve the right to terminate the recurring payment plan in our sole discretion. If we terminate the recurring payment plan, we will notify you and you will thereafter be required to make payments using an alternative method.
- Updated Payment Information: You are solely responsible for keeping your payment information current and for ensuring you have sufficient funds to cover the full amount of any payments you make to us. Your bank may charge your insufficient fund charges ("NSF") for any payment authorized by you in which you do not have sufficient funds. We are not liable for any such NSF fees. You also agree that we may obtain financial information regarding your payment choices, such as bank account, or credit card information, from your financial institution for the purpose of performing the payments you have authorized, resolving payment issues and to ensure verification of your account information.
- Unauthorized EFTs and Processing Errors: If there is an unauthorized EFT to us, you must immediately report it to us or to your bank. You may notify us by calling, emailing or writing to us. For any subsequent transfers, you are solely liable to the extent permitted by state law. If you believe we have applied a payment in error, you must notify us by email, telephone or in writing. You must be able to provide to us your name, account number and tell us why your believe an error exists. We will promptly investigate and report the results to you, typically within 30 days of receipt of your notice of the error. If we determine that no error occurred, or that an error occurred in a manner or amount different from the error you notified us about, we will report our results to you in writing. Upon your request, we will provide to you copies of the relevant documents.
