CheckOut by PayGo FAQ
CheckOut is a convenient, new cash-based payment application allowing utility consumers to pay their bill with your utility using a CheckOut barcode and cash at over 50,000 retail locations across the country.
First, the YEC member obtains their unique barcode. The member can visit any participating local retailer to pay their bill. The cashier at the retailer scans the member’s barcode and accepts their payment. The member’s payment is posted in real-time to his or her account.
Payments made at participating retailers are applied in real time to the account balance.
Over 50,000 retailers participate in the network including Dollar General, CVS, Walgreens, Speedway, 7 Eleven, and Family Dollar. Use this interactive map to find retailers in your area.
A fee of $1.50 per transaction is charged to the member at the retail location when a payment is initiated.
Yes. All members will have their unique barcode printed on the back of their billing statement.
No. While the member has the ability to make multiple payments across member account numbers, they must have downloaded or printed the barcode for each of the individual accounts they wish to pay.
No. The retailer does not have access to the balance information. The member is required to tell the cashier at the retailer how much they want to pay.
At the time of the transaction, the retailer can cancel a payment prior to a receipt being generated. If a member requires a refund after the payment has been made, he or she will need to contact York Electric Cooperative.
Do some retail locations only accept a printed/physical barcode and others accept digital as well as printed?
The acceptance method is specified on the map of CheckOut retailers. The current retailers participating in the program accept both paper and digital, but it is possible for an individual retailer or even a new retailer to have legacy scanning equipment that can only accept printed barcodes. In this case, members would need to provide a printed copy.
