How Does It Work
Here at Half a Payment, we want you to understand exactly how biweekly payment plans work. We are not a lender. We’re a bill payment service that automatically collects payments from you and sends them to your lenders on your behalf. You can make biweekly mortgage payments, auto loan payments, auto lease payments, student loan payments, credit card payments, and any other type of recurring bill payment using Half a Payment.

Pay Half a Payment Every Two Weeks
Instead of paying your bill in full each month, you can take control of your finances and pay Half a Payment every two weeks. Most lenders won’t actually accept partial biweekly loan payments, but we will, and we’ll pass along a full payment to the lender every month. This means you’ll never miss a due date, and you’ll pay your bills on a schedule that works for you. Plus, you’ll pay off your debt faster because you’ll actually make two extra half payments each year. These go straight toward reducing your principal balance, which also lowers your interest cost in the future.

Pick Your Debit Days to Match Your Paycheck Cycle
One of the hardest things about paying bills every month is having them not match up evenly with your paychecks. At Half a Payment, you are in control of deciding when you want to pay your bills. Because we collect Half a Payment every two weeks, this corresponds perfectly with your pay cycles. Most people choose to pay their bills a day or two after they get paid so they aren’t tempted to spend their bill money.

We Automatically Send Extra Payments to Your Lender
Because most months have slightly more than four weeks, you end up making an extra Half a Payment every six months. On these occasions, we’ll send the extra half payment directly to your lender and instruct the lender to apply it toward reducing your principal balance. Once we start applying your extra payment toward reducing your principal balance, the portion of all of your future payments that goes toward interest is lower. This means all of your future payments include more principal repayment than originally scheduled. These small effects add up, especially as another extra Half a Payment goes to your lender every six months while you’re enrolled in the program.

We give you the freedom to pay more than Half a Payment every two weeks if you would like to reach your payoff date sooner. Just add any fixed amount, from $1 to several hundred dollars, to each payment and we’ll automatically deduct that amount. We’ll send along your extra payments every month to help you reduce your principal balance even more quickly and cut your interest cost.
