Can anyone use the MID Customer Self Service for online bill payment?
Anyone who has residential service with MID and access to the Internet can make their payment online with a Discover, Visa or Mastercard credit card. Anyone who has commercial service with MID and access to the Internet can make their payments online using a checking account. Customers must first register their MID account using account number, current email address and phone number.
What does this service cost?
MID Customer Self Service is free. If you decide to view and pay your bill through another Web site, such as your bank or portal, the provider of that Web site may charge you processing fees.
If I don’t receive my email notification, am I still responsible for a late fee?
Unfortunately, as with regular US mail, there is no way to guarantee the delivery of your email notification once it is sent. Therefore, it is the customer's responsibility to check the online site for the posting of your current bill, and late charges will be applied if not paid on or before the due date. If you do not receive your email notification, log on to the online system to view your bill. It will be posted to the site at least one week before the due date.
What payment methods are accepted for online bill payments?
Residential Customers may use Discover, Visa, and MasterCard credit card and ATM or debit card.
Non-Residential Customers may use a checking account. This is a free service for all customers.
Who processes the online payments for MID?
For online payments, Wells Fargo handles the processing of payments for us.
Can I still pay my bill with a check?
Yes. You may mail a check to our address that is listed on your bill. Please be sure to print your MID Account Number on your check so that we can post the payment to your account as soon as possible.
