- E-Check and Automatic Draft (ACH) information
- Please be aware when paying by E-Check or automatic draft (ACH), your GMWSS account, as well as your bank account, may be updated immediately and funds must be available to cover your payment.
- In the event of non-sufficient funds in the bank account you will be responsible for your bank fees, a $25.00 fee charged by GMWSS and possible disconnection fees.
- Invoice Cloud will safely store all your financial information
using Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant systems.
- This includes truncating (abbreviating) account numbers so that even GMWSS does not see your complete account information.
- Credit/Debit Card transactions are validated by Invoice Cloud to confirm the account number, expiration date, billing address, and zip code are correct. If so, the amount is deducted from the account and credited to GMWSS and the customer account.
- GMWSS does not receive actual account numbers, only the funds
deducted from the transaction.
- Credit / Debit Card Company Billing Statement information
MUST match what is entered on the payment screen (including any
abbreviations), or the transaction will not be processed.
- When making a payment, the GMWSS Service Name and Address are listed by default.
- GMWSS Service Name/Address and Credit Card Company Billing
Name/Address do not have to match; it is the GMWSS account number
that determines where the service credit is applied. The Name,
Address, and Zip Code are authenticators for the Credit/Debit Card
- Declined Debit / Credit card payments
- If an online payment is declined, it may temporarily show a charge to your bank account.
- Certain banks will debit the requested amount from the account before the transaction is completed. Basically, they put a hold on the funds while the process is validated.
- GMWSS only receives payment for the validated transaction; any others are the banks’ responsibility to return to the customer’s account as they were prematurely held.
- It is the specific bank’s policy which determines how and when the electronic transactions are processed; GMWSS has no control over that. Usually within a business day they replace the funds.
- For this reason, it is important that Billing information is entered correctly.
- If applicable, please configure any spam filters to allow e-mail
- GMWSS is not responsible for blocked or misrouted e-mail bills or receipts.
- E-bill preferences can be changed in the GMWSS Portal.
- E-mail addresses are not shared with third parties other than Invoice Cloud, nor used for any purpose other than to send e-bills, payment receipts, or for contact from GMWSS Customer Service.
For customers facing termination of service,
payment must be received by 4:30pm on the day before the scheduled
termination date to avoid service shut-off.
