THIS IS A WIKI TO AN OLD THREAD THAT IS NO LONGER BEING MAINTAINED!

This is a new thread for 2017. The previous discussion can be found here.
The new thread for 2018 is here.

DETAILS:
Bill Pay cannot be done at a regular register. BP must be done at Customer Service/Returns or at the Money Center in stores that have it.
WM offers two BP services: CheckFreePAY and MoneyGram. The cashier can initiate CheckFreePAY by selecting Money Services followed by Bill Pay on the register for a fee of $1-1.88. Moneygram is $4.99.
ONLY 4 successful debit card swipes can pay for a transaction. ONLY 5 payments per 16 digit account number per rolling 30 days.
CheckFreePay (800) 676-6148. - Look up payments using CC number and time of transaction

Standard BP- Once your CFP account is set up, you can add CC. When you want to BP give them your phone# to look up your account under Money Services. They often get confused and think you want MG, but just say it is under Money Services. Make sure you get 2 receipts, one from WM and a small one from CFP showing the CC# and Biller name you paid.

WM App - The Money Services works in express lane for BP, but has issues making 2 or more payments in a row. Make one BP, then come back or do another trans, then another BP to avoid issues. Make sure you get a BP receipt in the app and it shows the BP info and the CC you paid before leaving the store.

Some tips: If you don't get a receipt and they have to print you one, make sure the CC you paid appears on the printed receipt. If not on receipt, call CFP with the manager to verify there is no payment processing. They can cancel any transactions and pay you in cash right away. If they cancel the transaction and their cash drawer opens, that means they should pay you in cash, if it doesn't open, the money will probably return to your cards. Not sure what happens on the same day? Watch their drawer when they cancel the transaction to see if it opens. If they say the money will return to your DC, make sure to write down the managers name in case it doesn't.

BUSINESS DAY transaction completion time is 18:59:59 EST (Holidays change post day)
Friday after 06:59PM EST, until Monday BEFORE 07:00PM EST arrives Tuesday
Tuesday BEFORE 7:00PM arrives Wednesday
Wednesday BEFORE 07:00PM arrives Thursday
Thursday BEFORE 07:00PM arrives Friday
Friday BEFORE 07:00PM arrives Monday
But when a next-day payment will post and be visible depends upon the CC issuer.

Im used to the limit causing an issue that wont allow you to even swipe. In this case it let me swipe and only after caused the issue. This was my first MC payment for the given CC in 30 days.

The extra c38 is not the issue, but I am wondering will the payment go through properly? Any DP?

TIA
When they ask you to approve the fee on the keypad, click no and explain that it's $1.50 rather than $1.88. They just selected the wrong biller. I just used it two days ago, and it's still $1.50. To answer your question, though: yes, they'll still get the funds.

Are most people on here doing the full 5x BPs per month?

Also, does anyone have DP of 5x BP/month to any US Bank cards on an ongoing basis?

I've searched the shutdown threads and find virtually nothing about US bank, and can't find anything on reddit, which I think that is related to the fact that not many people MS on US Bank cards.

Has anyone recently tried to use their Mango debit card for billpay? What about MO, whether at WM or elsewhere?

We do 5 BP to Barclay A+ using the MC option for 1.88. I know I could do 5 more using the bcard option for less. I also do a few other cc here and there.

I read through this thread about WMBP and went to local WM in MI for the first time. When I was paying a cc bill using SM FB, the lady said I can't use GC to pay. She asked manager and he said the same. Also, she said I could use max two of my own debit cards to pay! Seems like different WM locations have different rules? What are my options?

a. go back another shift and try with a different cashier;
b. go to a different WM;

as part of YMMV, stores not just WM (sometimes just individual cashiers), make their own policies. It is best not to argue with them, take note of the store personnel and come back again later to try with a different cashier.

can I use "bcard" to pay Barclay Arrival+?

my local WM does not have Mastercard or Visa in their checkfreepay, so can I use "bcard" to pay Barclay Arrival+?

It's not actually in the system as "bcard" - it's Barclaycard or Barclay card, something like that.

Usually they do, but they have to search for "visa" or "mastercard".

That is MY Walmart! Hop that this isn't a trend. Although I'm not using billpay I don't want it to trickle over to the MOs. So far, I've found the customer service desk to be pretty agreeable with everything in the few months I've been using the Novi location. They seem like they want to get it the high dollar amount right more than being suspicious or worried about policy.
