In a previous blog post, we let you know that Northern Utility Services is now accepting credit card payments through the credit card processing company PayClix. When we posted that blog, PayClix was not able to handle recurring payments, however, that has all changed! PayClix new auto withdrawal feature is here and it is a lot nicer and has many more features than the ACH auto withdrawal that we have been using.
The PayClix auto withdrawal feature known as JITAPS (Just in Time Automatic Payment System) allows our customers to not only automatically pay their bills each month via credit card or eCheck, the day before they are due, but also sends an email two days before the bill is due, allows customers to see their payment history, monthly charges and more. To start using this feature you must have a registered account with PayClix via the NUSalaska.com/payment page.
If you have not yet created an NUS PayClix account, registration is fast and simple. We advise you to have your most recent water bill on hand to help speed up the registration process. If you are already registered, then you can easily change to “Auto Pay” when you pay your next bill.
To register, visit NUSalaska.com/payment, and use the orange register button. This need only be done once, after that you may use the orange Payment button each time you return to make a payment, view a bill, view history or modify the AutoPay settings
Because of this new service from PayClix, we are in the process of phasing out our ACH auto withdrawal system. If you are currently signed up for the ACH auto withdrawal service, you must switch over to PayClix auto withdrawal by OCTOBER 31, 2012 or your auto withdrawal service will be stopped.
