    • Your payment method

Benefits of Speedpay


  • Speedpay could save you more than $20!

    Many payment vendors have a processing fee that is charged for the convenience of making a payment online or by phone.

    Peoples wants to provide you with the convenience of paying by phone or web while offering a lower processing fee. With Speedpay, the fee to make a phone or online payment to your Peoples account has been reduced to $1.95. This is a savings of more than 50% over the previous processing fee of $3.95. If you pay online or by phone every month, that's a savings of $24 dollars a year!

    It is important to note that this fee is not charged by Peoples.

  • Speedpay accepts American Express.

    You can now use American Express cards, in addition to Mastercard, Visa and Discover, to make a payment to your Peoples account.

    Debit/ATM cards with the STAR, PULSE, ACCEL or NYCE logos are also accepted.

  • Speedpay is secure, convenient, and easy to use.

    With Speedpay, you can make a payment to your Peoples account anytime, anywhere. All you need is an internet connection, your Peoples account number, and the zip code at the service address. Payments can also be made by phone 24/7.

    And, you can feel safe when using Speedpay to make an online payment to your Peoples account. Speedpay.com transactions are secured by SSL encryption.

  • Speedpay can be used on the go!

    You can use Speedpay to make payments on your Peoples account by phone, from your computer, or from other internet connected devices like smart phones and tablets. At home or on the go, Speedpay will work for you.

Why is Peoples making this change?

Many payment vendors charge a processing fee to make a payment online or by phone. Peoples wants to provide you with the convenience of paying by phone or web while offering a lower processing fee. Starting August 1st, the fee associated with phone and online payments to your Peoples account will be reduced from $3.95 to $1.95 – a savings of more than 50%.

It is important to note that this fee is not charged by Peoples; it is a fee charged by the company processing your credit card payment.  

What does this mean for me?

Well, along with the lower processing fee, you will now be able to use American Express cards in addition to Mastercard, Visa and Discover. Debit/ATM cards with the STAR, PULSE, ACCEL or NYCE logos are also accepted.

You may have used the Payer Express or Bill Matrix systems to make past payments to your Peoples account. These vendors will no longer be processing Peoples' payments, but don't worry, it's easy to get started with Speedpay! Check out the easy steps at the top of this page.

How can I make an online payment to my Peoples account without a processing fee?

You can enroll in automatic direct debit with your bank account. Peoples does not assess any fees, but make sure to consult with your banking institution about any fees they may charge.

The payment amount you select will be automatically deducted directly from your bank account on the date of your choosing.
