IREA historically has passed on to customers transaction fees charged by payment processors for certain payment methods. We recently have renegotiated fees for payment processing and the Board of Directors has approved elimination of all payment fee pass-throughs. Beginning this spring, residential customers may pay via credit and debit cards without paying transaction fees. Fees also will be eliminated for all customers – commercial and residential – who pay their bills using any other method.
IREA offers a number of other free payment methods that can help make your bill payments more convenient and reliable. If you are not already signed up, please consider enrolling in any of the following:
IREA Auto Pay
The amount due on your monthly bill is automatically deducted from your designated checking or savings account on the due date noted on your bill. You won’t have to write a check, use a stamp or initiate electronic payment. Enroll by visiting www.IREA.coop and logging into My Account.
Your monthly bill is emailed to you as a PDF attachment that includes a free and secure payment option. Sign up at www.IREA.coop/ebilling.
Available only to customers who are enrolled in eBilling, and who have opted to Save Payment Details at least once, One Click allows you to immediately pay by selecting the Pay Total Amount Due option within the body of your email.
Available only for residential accounts, Budget Billing sets a monthly amount due based on the previous 12 months of usage at your service address. The amount due will stay the same for the first 11 months of enrollment. On the 12th month your account will be settled with either a higher or lower bill, depending on your actual usage. Call (800) 332-9540 to see if you are eligible for Budget Billing.
