  1. Bill Pay Service
    1. Using the Service
      The Wadena State Bank Online Bill Pay Service allows you to schedule bill payments. You can schedule, at your option, for the payment of your current, future, and recurring bills from the checking account you designated on your Setup form. There is no limit to the number of payments that may be authorized. You may pay any merchant or individual through the use of Wadena State Bank Online. We are unable to process any payment of taxes or court-directed payments through Wadena State Bank Online Bill Pay services.

      By furnishing us with the names of payees/merchants, you authorize us to follow the payment instructions to these payee/merchants that you provide us through Wadena State Bank Online. When we receive a payment instruction (for the current or a future date), we will remit funds to the payee on your behalf, from the funds in your selected checking account, on the day you have instructed them to be sent (“Payment Date”). However, we shall not be obligated to make any such payment unless your account has sufficient funds or credit availability to pay the bill on the Payment Date. Funds for ALL bill payments (whether these payments are made electronically or by check) will be withdrawn from your account within two business days of the scheduled payment date.

      Your bill payment is sent on the Payment Date you selected and in some instances beyond our control (such as delayed mail delivery, slow responding companies or financial institutions), a bill payment may actually be received by the payee & presented after its actual due date.

      For this reason, it is recommended that all bill payments be scheduled at least (5) five business days before the actual due date, not the late date.

      If you properly follow the procedures described herein, and Wadena State Bank Online fails to deliver a payment on the scheduled payment date, we will pay any late fees or finance charges as long as your account was in good standing with the merchant prior to this incident. In any other event, including, but not limited to, choosing a payment date less than (5) five days prior to the actual due date, the risk of incurring and the responsibility for paying any and all charges or penalties shall be borne by you.

      Wadena State Bank Online will use its best efforts to process all your payments properly. However, Wadena State Bank Online shall incur no liability if it is unable to complete any payments initiated by you through Wadena State Bank Online Bill Pay services because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:

      1. Your account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction.
      2. The Wadena State Bank Online processing center is not working properly and you know or have been advised by the service about the malfunction before you execute the transaction.
      3. You have not provided Wadena State Bank Online with the correct names or account information for those persons or entities to whom you wish to direct payment.
      4. Circumstances beyond the Wadena State Bank Online’s control such as, but not limited to, fire, flood, or interference from an outside force that would prevent the proper execution of the transaction. Wadena State Bank Online has taken reasonable precautions to avoid those circumstances.

        Wadena State Bank reserves the right to terminate your use of Wadena State Bank Online bill payment service in whole or part, at any time without prior notice.

        If, for any reason, you should ever wish to cancel Wadena State Bank Online bill payment services, we strongly suggest that you cancel all future bill payments at the same time that you cancel your service, either by deleting those payments yourself using Wadena State Bank Online or calling Wadena State Bank’s Customer Service at (218) 631-1860. This will ensure that future payments and transfers made by you will not be duplicated. We will automatically delete all outstanding payment orders (all individual payments and all recurring payments) once we have been notified that your service has been terminated. We will continue to maintain your accounts until you notify us otherwise.

    2. Bill Pay Service Fees
      The monthly fee for Wadena State Bank Bank Online Bill Pay services is $5.95 per statement cycle, for unlimited access. The first three months of this service is free. This fee covers bill payments to anyone you wish to pay in the U.S. These fees cover service for the previous month and are effective after the three month trial period. Fees will be charged to your payment account, whether or not bill payments are made out of that account, or any other account linked to Wadena State Bank Online Bill Pay services.

      Additionally, you agree to pay any special charges in effect as announced by the Bank from time to time. These charges are in addition to the fees and service charges specified in your applicable checking, savings, overdraft protection account agreements (for example, uncollected or overdraft charges on your checking account).

      If the payment account has insufficient funds to cover fees, the Bank will deduct the fee from any other account you have with the Bank (in any order we may choose). If the fee cannot be paid, we may cancel your bill pay service. After cancellation, your bill pay service may be reinstated by contacting Wadena State Bank Customer Service once sufficient funds are available in your payment account to cover the bill payment fees and any other pending transfers or debits.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign-initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (5 business days for VISA Debit Card point-of-sale transactions and 20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation.
