How to set up ongoing bill payments in the Manulife Bank online banking site

Set up ongoing or recurring bill payments, so you don’t have to remember to pay them individually every month.

Before your start…

Add your bills to your account

  • Before you pay any bills, you need to add bill payees to your account.
  • If you get a new billing account with a company that’s already set up in your Manulife Bank account, check to see if the billing account number is the same. If it’s changed, you need to delete and re-add the bill.

Keep in mind

  • It can take 3-5 business days for your bill payee to receive your payment.
  • You can set up one-time or ongoing bill payments.

Eligible accounts

  • Advantage Account (Canadian-dollar, personal, or business)
  • All-In Banking Package
  • Manulife One main account
  • Manulife Bank Select chequing account
  • Line of credit

Step 1
Get started

Sign into online banking, click Bills in the left side menu, then click Set up ongoing bills.

Step 2
Pick the bill you want to pay

All your bill payees will appear on this page. Select the bill you want to pay and click Next.

Step 3
Enter the bill payment details

On this screen, you’ll enter a few key details for the payment:

  • The account you want to pay the bill from
  • The amount you want to pay
  • The payment frequency (how often you want to pay this bill)
  • The start and end date for the ongoing payment. The start date is the first day the payment will be made from your account.

Once you’ve entered the payment details, click Next.

Step 4
Confirm the bill payment details

Review the details, make sure everything is correct, then click Confirm and pay. To make changes, click Back or Cancel.

  • If you set up ongoing payments, the money must be in your account the day before the payment is scheduled to be made.
  • If you schedule a payment for a weekend or holiday, it will be processed the following business day.
