Telpay’s bill payment feature has streamlined the payables process for many Canadian businesses. We process payments for thousands of vendors and suppliers every day. Telpay’s bill payment feature is designed as an all-in-one solution where you can pay any bill, including utilities.
We have specific features built around our utility payments to help streamline these tedious payment tasks.
Here are a few features that help make utility payments easy when processing through Telpay:
Multiple account numbers for one supplier
If you have multiple account numbers to pay to for one supplier, you can set up multiple account payments. For example, if you have 10 Rogers Wireless cell phone accounts to pay, you can pay multiple account numbers and allocate the total amount due to each account number. To learn more about how you can start allocating payments to multiple account numbers, follow our step by step instruction guide.
Next day payment deposits
You have the option to fund your utility payments by sending your money to Telpay using your online banking system. This option requires only 1 business day lead time to process your payments. Your utility bill payment file and the funds for the file must be sent to Telpay by 3:00 PM, CST, 1 business day prior to your payment date.
No need to collect banking information
Utility payments are one of the most common payments processed by Telpay. We have a large biller database for all utility payments types for across Canada. This makes it easy for you to simply import your payments and click ‘pay’. There is no need to collect banking information for your utility payments as Telpay already has this information stored for you.
Telpay will notify the utility supplier when the payment has been made
Once a payment has been made to your utility supplier, Telpay will notify them via email or fax when the electronic payments will be deposited. The remittance report also summarizes who is paying them and the account numbers to make for an easy reconciliation process. You can view an example remittance report here.

Are you feeling the stress of another tiring, tough and downright taxing season? Tax season doesn’t have to be stressful and overwhelming. Here are five strategies to help you manage:
Be positive: Your mental health and state of mind have a significant effect on your professional and personal life. It has been well documented that people with a positive attitude are more upbeat and peaceful. Even during tax time, you can choose to be positive amongst the chaos of the season.
We all hear talk about the good old days. What you could buy for a dollar back then is worth more than a Toonie now. Yes, prices have doubled (sometimes more than doubled!), but not Telpay fees. Let’s take a nostalgic look back to see the rising costs for individuals and businesses. Continue reading
Telpay is thrilled to be celebrating the second year of our wildly successful Save a Tree-Plant a Tree Program. In partnership with Tree Canada, when a Telpay customer makes 100 electronic bill payments, Telpay will plant a tree in one of the 5 designated Tree Canada regions throughout our country.
Congratulations to all our customers for reaching the milestone. By switching to electronic payments, not only do our customers enjoy the convenience of going cheque free, but they are also doing their part for the planet.
How Trees Make a Difference
Here are 5 reasons, why trees are important:
- Trees help remove atmospheric CO2 from the air, which makes the air more breathable and reduces the Greenhouse effect.
- Trees have medicinal uses. In fact, 1 of 4 pharmaceutical products is plant-based.
- Trees’ root systems help prevent soil erosion, which prevents water pollution.
- Trees planted in fields shield against wind and snow and help protect crops.
- Trees provide shade that cools water, benefiting certain species of fish, plus their roots and branches provide space for fish to hide from predators
