Question:

Is it permitted to set up an automatic payment for a bill or the like from my bank website to be processed on Shabbos or Yom tov?

Answer:

It is permitted. The reason is because you are not doing any action on shabbos, and it is also not “avsha milsa” (a loud action of melacha) since it isn’t noisy or publically noticeable, therefore it isn’t considered a disrespectful that it happen on shabbos.
