How do I set up autopay for bill payments?

We are in the process of enhancing our online banking bill pay. Your experience may be different from this article. To view the new process, check our Digital Explorer page.

You can set up automatic payments for bills you pay on a regular schedule. Here's How:

Online banking steps:

To get started, log into online banking and follow these steps:

  1. Select Bill Payments from the main menu, then choose Pay bills & U.S. Bank accounts.
  2. Locate and select the desired biller from the list, then choose Show Details.
  3. Select Autopay set up now in the biller details located on the right. 
  4. Provide the amount, choose the frequency and the start date, select the account to pay from, then Start autopay.

U.S. Bank Mobile App steps:

For the best mobile banking experience, we recommend logging in or downloading the U.S. Bank Mobile App.

  1. Select Pay bills & transfer, then select Pay a bill.
  2. Locate and select the desired biller from the list, then choose Autopay Set up now.
  3. Provide the amount, choose the frequency and the start date, select the account to pay from, then Save.

Additional information:

Please be aware express delivery payments aren't eligible for the recurring payment option. Safe debit accounts default to the standard delivery payment date, which is the earliest date the electronic payment can be made. 

If you chose Twice a Month as the frequency, the first payment will be made on the date you selected. The second payment will occur two weeks later. For example, July 10 is selected as the first payment date; therefore, the second payment date will be on July 24. This schedule will repeat monthly on those two dates until the recurring payment is stopped.

If you don’t have digital bills for the biller, you’ll only have the option to set up your own schedule. You can add e-bills to schedule automatic payments based on your billing dates.
