Is it permitted to enlist in autopay, which will pay bills for you even on Yom Tov?
Details: I have a repetitive bill which is paid weekly. I want to pay using online banking where my bank will automatically issue and mail a check to the vendor every Monday.
Is there an issue using this service if they will send out the weekly check every Monday including Yom Tov?
Thank you

Answer:

Presumably this is done with a computer generated automatic system that does not require human intervention. If that is in fact the case there is no problem of it being done on Yom Tov. It is forbidden to request a non Jew do Melacha for you on Yom Tov, even if the request was done before Yom Tov.
