Easy, free ways to pay your U.S. bills, no matter
where you are
Online Banking and Bill Pay
Online Banking & Bill Pay is one of the most flexible and convenient options for paying your bills. Pay bills you receive from any U.S. company or pay U.S. individuals or merchants simply by filling in their name, address, and your account number. Even more convenient, you can schedule regular U.S. payments so they occur even when you’re in Canada. That’s an important service, since post-dated checks are not accepted in the U.S.
- Set up one-time or recurring payments to U.S. companies or individuals up to a year in advance
- Make next-day electronic payments to many companies
- View and manage your scheduled payments, companies or individuals who bill you electronically, and bill reminders
- While you’re signed in, you also can switch to your RBC Royal BankTM (Canadian) accounts to access and pay your Canadian bills
Online Banking & Bill Pay
If you prefer, pay your U.S. bills by writing a check drawn on your RBC Bank account and sending it by U.S. mail.
Automated payments (ACH)
At your request, many companies will set up monthly payments drawn directly from your checking account for regular bills, such as mortgage payments, credit card payments, homeowner association dues, and more. It’s faster than writing a check and is automated so the payment is made each month, assuming your account has the funds to cover the payment.
