If your payment method is checking or savings, it could take from one to five days for your payment to reject and you will be notified by email when this occurs. If you believe that your payment was not made, and it should have been, please contact StratusIQ at 719-573-5343.

If Recurring Payments is making your payment today, it may not show in your payment history until after daily processing which usually takes place at 3:00pm Central Time.
