Yes, all previous bill pay data has transferred to the upgraded service, including your pending and reoccurring payments, payee information, and payment history.
Some payees may need additional information to complete a payment. If any payees are highlighted with yellow and tagged with “update biller,” we will need additional or updated information on this payee.
Simply use your monthly statement or invoice from this payee to complete the necessary information.
Bill Pay will be available under the Send Money menu option, listed as “Pay Bills.”
Your eBills are not available in the new Payments Solution right now but will be reintroduced at a future date.
If any of the payee’s information changed between the time you originally set up the payment and our enhancement to the system, it may have caused the payment to be sent as a check rather than electronically. To resolve this, you can re-enter the payee information using a recent statement to ensure that it is current and accurate.
Check copies are available after the payee presents the check for payment and it clears successfully. You can review check images in your account history in Online Banking and the Mobile App.
Stop payments can be placed on paper checks in Online Banking under the Secure Forms tab and selecting Stop Payment. You may also call 850.505.3200 or a visit any Pen Air location.
Recurring payments were brought over with the most recent transaction showing a recurrence of “once”. All future payments show with a recurrence of “monthly”.
If your payee is paid electronically, the mailing address of the payee will not be displayed.
We are actively working with our bill pay vendor, as well as Gulf Power to find an electronic resolution as soon as possible. In the meantime, when scheduling Gulf Power payments, please allow enough time prior to your due date to account for mailing time.
In converting payees from our previous vendor to our new vendor, it may be that some account information needs to be updated, such as account number or address. If your biller is highlighted in yellow, please complete the requested information.
Please note that payments cannot be scheduled until the information has been updated.
Pay a Person & Transfer Money
Pay a Person is a free service that allows you to pay anyone in the United States with a bank account. All you need is their email address or mobile phone number to get started.
External transfers allow you to transfer funds between accounts you own at other financial institutions.
Will my previous accounts and automatic transfers, set-up through external transfer and PopMoney, convert over to the upgraded service?
No, for security purposes all previous External Transfer and PopMoney users will need to re- enroll their external accounts and payments to other people inside the upgraded service.
The new services will be available under the “Send Money” tab, listed as “Transfer Money and “Pay a Person”. The Transfer Money service will allow you to set-up your external accounts for future transfers.

Electronic payments are deducted from the account on the day you select as the “Send Date and will be delivered the following business day, known as the “Deliver Date”the payment is sent.
Checks will be deducted from your account once the payee processes the check and it clears your account.

Your payment will be sent on the first business day following the non-business day.
