‘Tis the Season – Payment Tips for the Holidays


The holiday season is approaching and it’s never too early start preparing for the holidays.  If you are anything like me, you make a plan to start your gift shopping early, but that plan slips away as the holidays grow closer.  There are a lot of things to plan for over the holiday season and it can be hard to prepare for them all. 

Here are a few tips to help you start preparing your payroll and payables for the upcoming holiday season and non-processing days:

  1. Confirm your funding deadline dates using our Holiday Funding Schedule.  Find the date that your payroll or payables are due and check the chart for your adjusted funding cutoff date.
  2. Take advantage of Telpay’s remote email approval which will allow your signing officer(s) to approve payroll and bill payment files while on holidays or out of the office.
  3. Make your holiday donations  with Telpay’s electronic payables feature.  Register for a payables webinar and learn how you can set up and pay a charity electronically this holiday season.

There is still hope for starting your holiday shopping early.  Not only do we want to help you get an early start with your electronic payments, we also want to help you get started with your electronic online shopping.  Join one of our bill payment training webinars and get a kick start to your holiday shopping with a $50 Amazon gift card*!
