For overnight checks, payments initiated prior to the daily cutoff time will be delivered by the next business day.

Availability of expedited payment options will be limited based on biller capabilities, time of day, payment delivery mechanisms and other factors. Expedited overnight checks will be unavailable for delivery to PO Box addresses or locations in any foreign or U.S. territory outside of the contiguous 48 states and District of Columbia.

People Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure
This People Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure supplements and constitutes a part of the Peoples National Bank Internet Banking Service Agreement/Disclosure and Bill Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure (the "Agreement"), and sets forth additional terms and conditions for use of the Peoples National Bank People Pay (the "Payment Service"). The Agreement remains in full force and effect and is supplemented by this People Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure. To the extent there is a conflict between the terms of the Agreement and this People Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure, the terms of the People Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure will govern your use of the Payment Service. Further, by enrolling in the Payment Service, you agree that the terms of this People Pay Service Agreement/Disclosure apply only to your use of People Pay and do not apply to other products, services, or transactions under the Internet Banking Agreement/Disclosure or any other Agreements you have entered into with Peoples National Bank (the "Bank").
Payment Service Introduction. People Pay is a fast and easy electronic person-to-person payment service that facilitates transfers between your account and any person or entity with an eligible financial institution account or PayPal® account. Additionally, you may receive funds through the Payment Service from a payment generated by another user of the Payment Service. In order to utilize the Payment Service, you must maintain an eligible funding account ("Account") and enrollment in the Peoples National Bank Internet Banking Service. An eligible funding account is an account with check-writing privileges that is linked and accessible via your Internet Banking account. Often this is the account you also utilize for the Bill Payment Service. You can facilitate a transfer ("Payment") to a person or entity ("Recipient") utilizing their financial institution information, mailing address, email address, or mobile telephone number.
Payment Service Authorization. You (the "Sender") authorize the Bank to follow Payment instructions we receive from you through the Payment Service when you provide us with the names, mailing addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, or bank account information for Recipients to whom you wish to direct Payments. When we initiate processing of such Payments you have authorized through the Payment Service, you also authorize us to debit the Account for the amount of the Payment, plus any service fees in effect at the time the Payment instructions are received, and to remit funds to the Recipient as indicated in the Payment instructions.
The Bank is relying on information you provide when you enter Payment instructions. Any errors, including incorrect Recipient names, mailing addresses, email addresses, mobile telephone numbers, or bank or account number information, are your responsibility as the Sender, and the Bank does not confirm or verify the information you enter prior to sending the Payment.
Payment Criteria and Limitations. Payments made through the Payment Service are subject to the following criteria and limitations:
|Payment Methodology||Recipient Information Needed||Transaction Limit||Daily Limit||Debit to Sender's Account|

Payment Edits or Cancellation. Account-to-Account and PayPal Payments begin processing immediately after you click the button to submit the Payment and cannot be edited or canceled.

Inquiries and requests to edit or cancel Payments should be directed to Customer Service at 1-866-900-6550, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please see the Electronic Funds Transfers – Your Rights and Responsibilities for complete information about your rights and responsibilities in facilitating Payments utilizing the Payment Service.

Declined and Expired Payments. If a Payment is declined by the Recipient, you will receive an email or text message notification from the Payment Service.
The following criteria apply to Payment expirations:
|Payment Methodology||Expiration Period|
