What are Inclearing check transactions?
An inclearing check as specified on the NetTeller™ system is a check transaction that was deposited to a bank other than Monticello Banking Company. For example: Let's say you write a check to John Doe Enterprise for $500.00. Then John Doe Ent. cashes your check at some bank other than Monticello Banking Company. That bank then processes the check and sends it to Monticello Banking Company to be processed through our system. Since the check was deposited at another bank besides MBC then it is referred to as an Inclearing check.

No. Any merchant that is on electronic payee database can go electronically. If a merchant is not on the list you may send the payment as a check. Make sure that you enter your merchant account number exactly the way it appears on your bill. If you choose a merchant on the electronic database that requires an address match, choose the correct remittance address listed on your bill.
When will the money be taken out of my account?
For an ELECTRONIC PAYMENT, funds are debited the same day that the payment is sent, providing it is sent by 1:00 PM ET. Electronic payments submitted after 1:00 PM ET are debited the next day during bill pay processing.
CHECK payment funds are debited from the account when the check clears your account at the bank.
What if I do not have enough money in my account?
CHECK payments are handled in the same manner as a check written out of your checkbook against an insufficient balance.
ELECTRONIC payments are verified for funds availability during processing. If the funds are available, the account that you selected for the payment will be debited and the information sent on to the electronic vendor for processing. If the funds are not available, the payment will not be processed and you will receive a message to inform you that the payment could not be sent due to insufficient funds. Each day the payment will be resubmitted for you until either you delete the payment or the funds are in the account to make the payment.
How late in the day can I enter, edit, or delete a payment?
You may add, edit, or delete a payment up to 3:00 AM ET on the day the payment is scheduled to be sent. If a same day payment is submitted between 3:00 PM ET and 1:00 PM ET it may be edited up until 1:00 PM ET.
