Pay bills online

Pay a company or person using Bill Pay.

The Pay a Bill feature in Personal Internet and Mobile Banking allows you to pay a company or a person within the U.S. from your HSBC checking account with no fee.

Your online payments are guaranteed to arrive on time1 and also backed by our $0 Liability, Online Guarantee2 against unauthorized access or misuse.

Pay a Company

Control who gets paid and when you pay them, unlike automatic debit on a biller’s website.

  • Know exactly when your payment will be made and if it will be sent via electronic payment or paper check
  • Set up one-time or recurring payments for bills like tuition, utilities, mortgage or taxes
  • Make up to five one-time bill payments at a time using our convenient dashboard 

Pay a person

Send money to any person in the U.S. even if they’re not set up online. We’ll deliver your payment as a paper check via postal mail, eliminating your need for a checkbook or a stamp.

  • Arrives as a paper check within 5 business days
  • Set up one-time payment or recurring payments to a person, such as your landlord
