I've read about that too, but it seems it'll take a while to fully implement.

Besides, that's talking about the time between the payee receiving the check, and the time it clears. I'm more concerned about the time between the check being written and the payee receiving it. If I wrote the check myself, there's no way it'd be debited from my account immediately. By using online billpay, the bank writes the check and debits my account immediately, then charges me a low balance fee.

I guess my main gripe isn't so much with the billpay policy, so much as it is with the minimum balance requirement. I mean, I don't want to keep $500 in an account that doesn't bear interest. Granted, I'll have more than that most times but as paydays near it's not uncommon for me to drop down to $200 or so. But I don't want to pay $9/month for the privledge of doing so either.
