Using Online Bill Pay
Bill Pay is a free service offered to Pyramid FCU members through your online account. Rather than writing your own checks and mailing payments, with Bill Pay you can set up payments to individuals and merchants on a one-time or recurring basis. The Bill Pay provider then processes those payments on your behalf. Many merchants now participate in Bill Pay programs and accept electronic payments so your payments arrive in just a few days. There are still some merchants who require check payments, so you need to make sure you are scheduling your payments with enough delivery time to reach the merchant on or before the payment is due.
You must have a Pyramid checking account to enroll in Bill Pay.
We recommend that you first login to your Online Banking account on a desktop/laptop computer to enroll in Bill Pay.
From the main menu, select Bill Pay. You will be asked a number of validation questions and will set up challenge phrases to secure your Bill Pay account.
Once you have enrolled in Bill Pay, you can add payees and schedule payments within the Mobile App as well.
There are some helpful video tutorials in your Bill Pay dashboard.
Once you are enroll in Bill Pay, you can begin to set up your Payees - these are the merchants, businesses or people you would like to send payments to. From the main Bill Pay menu, select Add Payee and begin entering the requested information (account number if applicable, name, address and phone).
After your Payee is set up, you will be able to see whether payments will be sent as electronic payments or as regular mailed checks. Electronic payments are typically processed in 1-2 business days, where mailed checks can take up to 10 days to reach the payee. Be sure to plan accordingly to avoid late payments.
After you have set up your Payees, you can begin to schedule Bill Pay payments. Enter the amount and the date you want to schedule your payment. Be aware of the processing time (electronic or mailed payments vary from 1-2 days up to 10 days delivery time) when scheduling payments.
Your funds will be withdrawn from your Pyramid checking account on the process date.

Depositing Checks with the Mobile App
First, you must download the Pyramid FCU Mobile App. This service is not available through a desktop (browser-based) login.
From your mobile device or tablet, login to your Mobile App and then select ‘Deposit Check.’ Follow the steps to take a photo of both sides of the paper check.
Be sure to carefully follow the instructions regarding check amount limits and proper endorsements. DO NOT destroy the paper check until you have confirmation that the deposit was accepted and credited to your account.
This is a very important step. You must write the words “For Mobile Deposit Only to Pyramid FCU” on the back of the check, as well as writing your account number and signature on the back of the check.
Some checks have a small box to check that says Mobile Depost. This is NOT a sufficient endorsement and your mobile deposit will be rejected.
Failure to include any of the above endorsements on the back of the check will result in the mobile deposit being rejected.
The daily limit for all mobile deposits is $5,000. Single checks or multiple check deposits exceeding those limits will be rejected.
DO NOT destroy the paper check. If you receive a message that you did not include the appropriate endorsement - to hand write "FOR MOBILE DEPOSIT TO PYRAMID FCU," you should make the corrections to write the above endorsement and re-scan the check again through the Mobile App.
Even if your Mobile Deposit is submitted successfully, DO NOT destroy the paper check for at least 30 calendar days after the deposit posts to your account.
Just because your mobile deposit was submitted sucessfully, it doesn't mean that the money is immediately available for use.
All mobile deposits are subject to our Funds Availability Policy and may not be available for 1-2 business days after deposit. Some deposits may be placed on additional holds before the funds are released.
See page 17 of the Membership Agreement for details on the Funds Availability Policy.
