Payment Authorization Terms and Conditions
Welcome to the secure bill payment technology service provided by Paymentus Corporation. We are an authorized provider for the billing company to which you are about to make a payment. If you use this service to make your payment, you accept these terms and conditions. Please read them carefully.
Refund Policy: Where applicable, Paymentus charges a non-refundable service fee based on a schedule of fees to process your payment for the use of its software and technology platform to handle this payment. This fee is separate, over and above your bill payment amount to be paid to the billing company.
Acceptance: By Clicking on the “I agree to the terms and conditions”, you agree to pay the Total Amount Charged, which includes both the bill payment amount to be paid to the billing company and the service fee to be paid to Paymentus Corporation. All authorizations are subject to the agreements governing your credit or debit card. Payment transaction will only be completed after receiving successful authorization from your card company for the Total Amount Charged.
For card payments except for tax and govt. payments, you will see one line item on your cardholder statement “Total Amount Charged”, charged directly by the billing company you are making a payment to. For tax and govt. payments you will see two line items: one charged directly by the billing company and, if a fee applies to your payment, a second by Paymentus for the use of its technology platform.
When a fee applies for ACH payments, you will see two line items on your bank statement. One charged directly by the billing company and another charged by Paymentus for the use of its technology platform. For ACH payments where a fee does not apply, you will see one line item on your bank statement charged directly by the billing company.
Westfield NSF Fee: Effective October 22, 2018, if your payment is returned unpaid for any reason Westfield will apply a returned payment fee to your account in the amount of the lesser of $25, or the maximum amount allowed by state law.
