What does it mean when I get a BLANK screen and cannot login?

ANBTX Online requires 128-bit encryption (a high level of coding for security purposes). If your computer browser does not have this level of encryption, a blank screen will be displayed. At the very top of the screen you may see a message displaying the need of 128-bit encryption and JavaScript.


How can you secure my banking information?
We have extremely high criteria for security of your online banking information. A few of these are listed below:
     · Your banking information never travels the Internet without encryption protection.
     · Login sessions have a time-out limit and after the limit is reached you are required to login again.
     · Password guessing is deterred and reported.
Why can’t I transfer funds online between my corporate and personal accounts?

Banks are required to limit potential liability with respect to funds being improperly moved from corporate accounts to personal accounts. A check being written from the corporation by an authorized signer, to a specific payee, provides a paper trail that can be used if, at any future date, there is any question as to why corporate funds were moved to a personal account. This applies to Corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLC), and partnerships. However, those customers with Sole Proprietorships will continue to have the ability to transfer funds between their business and personal accounts.


How does ANBTX Online Bill Payment feature work?

Bill Pay allows you to pay all of your bills at your convenience from any PC connected to the Internet.


Are there fees associated with Online Bill Pay?

Consumer Bill Pay service is free with unlimited check writing. * Fee subject to change


How do I sign up for Online Bill Pay?

If you are a current ANBTX Online user, simply contact our customer service center during regular banking hours at 800-837-6584 for assistance. Current ANBTX customers not enrolled in either service are welcome to complete and submit our Online Application or stop by one of our convenient locations.


How do customers’ accounts get charged for online bill payments?

Check payments are encoded with the customer’s account number and a sequential check number beginning at 1000000001 is encoded on the check. These checks clear against the customer’s account as if they had written a check from their own checkbook. The signature line on the check will be printed with "Signature on File". Electronic payments are verified for availability of funds during the noon processing. The customers’ account is debited for the payment if the funds are available.


How do customers establish electronic payments?

Select the Add New Payee from the Bill Payment drop down menu. To set up an electronic payee, click on the binoculars. Select the first letter of the payee name from the alphabet list or type in the payee name. Click on the Help link for further information.


When are transactions (payments) processed?

Payments are processed each day Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) at 12 noon Central Time. Any payments issued via check will be printed and mailed (postal) the same day if entered up to noon Monday through Friday (excluding holidays and weekends). Electronic payments will be processed the same day if entered up to noon Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).


What is the lead-time for a payment to be made?

Since check payments entered before noon CST Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) are mailed that day, sufficient time must be allowed for the post office to deliver the check. Please allow 5-7 days (excluding grace period, holidays or weekends) for paper check payments. Allow 3-4 days (excluding grace period, holidays or weekends) for electronic payments. If a scheduled payment falls on a weekend it will be processed on Monday (except holidays). New payments scheduled during the weekend will be processed on Monday (except holidays). All payments scheduled for a holiday will be processed the day after the holiday. Helpful Hint: To see how Bill Pay works you may want to send a payment to yourself. This will allow you to see what the check looks like and verify all of the information on the check, such as your name, address, and account number.


Why are there two lines for one of my payments?

If you setup your payee’s with the information on your bill, it may not be the correct address for electronic payments. Our Bill Pay provider may substitute addresses when it transmits the payments. If this occurs an additional line will be on your Schedule.


Why do I have two sets of passwords?

The Cash Management product allows for you to set up separate ID’s and passwords for all your employees. Each company will have an ANBTX Online ID and password and then each employee will have their own ID and password. When setting up your employees, you can also specify which of your accounts the employee has access to.


Who do I call with questions?

Call our customer service center at 800-837-6584 Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to noon.
