From the Payments icon, click on the Picture Bill Payment submenu to get started.


Follow the instructions to take the best picture possible. Click the Take Picture button when ready to continue.

  1. Detach the Payment Coupon from the billing statement before taking the picture.
  2. Place the Payment Coupon on a dark surface.
  3. Provide enough light.
  4. Keep the camera flat and stable over the document.
  5. Center the Payment Coupon within the rectangle.
  6. Take the picture.

Center the payment coupon in the rectangle on a dark surface, trying to hold as still as possible. MAKE SURE TO ONLY TAKE A PICTURE OF THE PAYMENT COUPON, NOT THE ENTIRE 8.5 X 11 INCH BILL; YOU WILL RECEIVE AN ERROR MESSAGE. Then click the camera button.


If the image is not blurry or you are satisfied click the save button to continue the process. If the image is blurry you can click the retake button to take the picture again. Or if you changed your mind you can click the cancel button to stop the process.


Make sure to verify the information auto filled from the picture payment process is correct. Correct any errors or fill in missing fields as needed.


You can give your Payee a nickname; this will not be auto filled.


You will notice the phone number field was blank that was because it was located on a different area of the bill. It can easily be added here. Click ok to continue or cancel to stop the process.


In some cases you will receive a One Time PIN either to the SMS mobile number on file or the email address on record depending on your preferences. You will only have a few minutes to retrieve the security code before it resets.


After receiving the email or SMS text message, enter the number in the security code box and click the submit button to continue. If you want to stop the process click the cancel button.
