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

DETAILS:
As of Nov 1, 2018, WM Billpay is limited to a total of $8000 total per person to all accounts per rolling 30 days.


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 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BP by phone number lookup- 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 Bill Pay.

Receipt 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.

Payments:
Most cc can be paid 5 times by Visa/MC and 5 times by the issuing bank in rolling 30 days with a total of 10. There might be an 8K limit per rolling 30 days starting Oct 2018.

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.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Choose to pay by Visa/MC card issuer OR by issuing bank - see the 2 sections below.

VISA and MC - card issuer-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If your particular card isn't on the list below, try "VISA" or "MASTERCARD."

"VISA" and "MASTERCARD" payee can no longer be found by search at some stores. If the employee can no longer find "VISA" or "MASTERCARD" by searching in CheckFreePAY, then you cannot pay either, end of story.

Anyone have problems doing two payments in the app yesterday? I preloaded two BP's and neither would go through, but when I deleted one , the other went through. I then added the other one back and it also went through.

Where they for the same biller? I usually do 2 different billers or different amounts.

Friday I tried doing one and it rejected it twice, but accepted it the third time.

This morning I tried doing four and it rejected them three times, and we gave up and did them manually.

So there appears to be a system glitch.

Maybe I'll try loading just one although it's not clear that will make a difference since it rejected a solo.

FWIW the one it did accept was for $100 + fee (a non MS bill) but the ones today were all $2K including fees.

I gave up on pre-loading multiple BPs. I pre-load one, do it, and go away for a minimum 20 min, then load another. Rinse & Repeat. Haven't had a glitch, rejection, or freeze in many many months. Not worth the hassle.

it works fine on my buddy's iphone....my is Android...not sure if it matters

it turned out either WM billpay or MG is wanting to deter me from using BP. I can set up any amount less than $100 payment in the app, nothing over $100. over $100 goes to error message : "oops, we are having temporary system issue....."

2nd edit: after midnight, BP $1995.01 can be set up normally again....false alarm.

Temp got this message as well on Thursday afternoon, eventually added the payment to Amex successfully.
Just checked the payment wasn't posted on Friday. Some issues exist indeed.
