A bill pay account is a bank account not associated with a specific individual. Individuals with online banking capabilities can use the Bill Pay feature to submit a gift amount to the church. The individual's bank or bill pay provider sends checks to the church. The checks contain the same bank and routing number, but include the personal information of the individual giving the gift.
When a check for a bill pay account is scanned in Quick Entry, the Find Person window displays and you select the individual that contributed the gift. The scanned check image is then associated with that individual's record.
