You can pay anyone in the United States except Government Agencies and payments can be made from $.01 to $9,999.99.
- How do I sign up for online bill payment?

Payments can be entered, edited, or deleted Sunday through Friday until 11 p.m. EST the day before the scheduled payment date.

Electronic bill payment transactions will be posted to your account on the business day of the scheduled payment date. Payments sent by check will post to your account just like checks you have mailed.
- How many days must I allow for a bill payment to reach the payee?
Electronic payments must be scheduled three days prior to the due date. Check payments should be scheduled seven days prior to the due date for delivery to the payee by the due date. In most cases, payments will reach the payee in five to seven days.
- How do I know that my account information will be secure?
Bank-by-Net features multiple levels and types of security including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to ensure all data is encrypted. Multifactor authentication and transaction monitoring provide a secure Bank-By-Net environment. Consistent invalid ID attempts result in user "lock out" and suspect report generation. Customers will also be logged off after a period of inactivity.

* Your cell phone provider may charge additional fees for text messages. Consult your phone provider for details.
- How do I enroll in Text Banking?
- Login to Citizens Bank-by-Net
- Once you are logged into Bank-by-Net, select the Options tab and click Mobile Settings on the menu bar. Select the Option for "Text Mobile Banking"
- Select "Enable text access for your mobile device" and enter your cell phone number
- Select the accounts you wish to be able to access by text and assign a "Mobile Short Name" to each account. The Mobile Short Name can be used to access information about that specific account. For instance if you assign "checking" as the Mobile Short Name for your primary Citizens Bank checking account, you could text "BAL checking" to get the current balance of this account.
- After you have selected each account that you want to access by text and assigned a Mobile Short Name press Submit. Check the "I accept these full terms and conditions" after reviewing the Mobile Banking agreement and press Confirm.
- After you press Confirm, an Important Notice will appear at the top of your screen. This notice will ask you to text a validation code from your cell phone to Citizens Bank to confirm your enrollment. You will receive a text message confirming your enrollment.
- What are the restrictions on the type of mobile devices that can be used to access my accounts?
Citizens Bank Mobile Banking works with any web-enabled mobile phone device whose network allows secure SSL traffic. Text Banking works with any device that supports SMS. Check with your provider to ensure your device is supported.
- What happens if I lose my cell phone or it is stolen?
With Citizens Bank Mobile Banking your account information is not stored on your cell phone. Therefore, your account number and other confidential information cannot be stolen from a lost or stolen phone. However, if you use Text Banking and your phone keeps old text messages, previous automated responses from Citizens Bank regarding your account balance and transaction history could be viewed. Be sure to delete text messages that respond to account balance and transaction inquiries if you are concerned about this information being accessible in the unfortunate event your phone is lost or stolen.
- What do I need to do if I get a new phone?
If you simply get a new phone, but are using the same phone number and provider, no changes are necessary. If you switch providers and/or phone numbers, log in to Bank-by-Net on your PC and update your provider and number information under Options > Mobile Settings (on menu bar).
- What functions can I perform from my mobile device?
- With Mobile Banking, you can view transaction history, view account balances, deposit checks (apps only), transfer funds between accounts, pay bills to existing payees and view alerts.
- What functions and commands are available with Text Banking?
Text one of the following commands to Citizens Bank to receive a response
- BAL – Balance in All Enrolled Accounts
- BAL [Mobile Short Name] – Balance in Specified Account
- HIST – Recent Transaction History for All Enrolled Accounts
- HIST [Mobile Short Name] – Recent Transaction History for Specified Account
- HELP – Shows list of available mobile commands
- STOP – Ends Text Banking Enrollment
- Can I access my accounts from devices other than the one I sign-up?
Yes. Go to www.citizensbank24.com/cbmobile for our mobile formatted site. If your device is web-enabled and allows secure SSL traffic, you will be able to login to your account. However, confirmation text messages (SMS), confirming transfers and bill payments, will be sent to the device you sign-up, not the device you are using.
- Can I add a new payee in bill pay or delete a bill pay transaction from my cell phone?
No. Mobile Banking is limited to sending payments to already established payees. To add a new payee or delete a bill pay transaction, login to Bank-by-Net on your PC, select Bill Payment and complete the action. However, once you have setup a new payee, you will be able to submit payments to this payee from your mobile device. Citizens Bank reserves the right to reject or return any items presented in accordance with the terms and conditions of your account agreement and other agreements with us, even if a check is initially accepted for processing by EZ Deposit Mobile.
- How do I know if my transfer or bill payment was completed successfully?
Each time you make a transfer or bill payment with Mobile Banking, a confirmation will be sent to your cell phone. If you do not receive the confirmation message, double check to make sure the transaction went through, especially if your cell phone loses signal.
- When I try to enter an amount for a bill payment or transfer, I can't enter any numbers, just letters. Why?
Check your phones settings and documentation to ensure that your keypad is not set to Alpha-only. For some keypads, you may have to press the button associated with the number more than once to make a number appear.
- How far back does the transaction history go?
You can view up to 30 days of transaction history on your mobile device.
- What if I no longer want to be a Mobile or Text Banking user?
Login to Citizens Bank-by-Net. Select Options > Mobile Settings (on menu bar) and deselect "Enable web access for your mobile device" under Web Mobile Settings and click Submit to end your enrollment in Mobile Banking. Text Banking users can end their enrollment in text banking by texting "STOP" to the Citizens Bank text banking number or by deselecting "Enable text access for your mobile device" under Text Mobile Settings and clicking Submit.
- Why will my mobile device not work with Mobile Banking?
Although Mobile Banking works with almost every mobile device, devices that are not web-enabled and do not support secure SSL web traffic will not work with Mobile Banking. Check with your mobile provider to ensure your device meets these requirements. If you know your device is supported and you continue to experience problems, contact Citizens Bank Customer Support at 866-882-2265 for assistance.
