You share your thoughts online through blogging, you download movies and music online either for free or for a price, you love online gambling and you make it a point to indulge thrice a week, you met your wife online… There are thousands of things that are now possible once you go online, even paying the bills. Online payment is yet another reason why many people embrace technology and the convenience it offers.
Just to be clear, online payment is the term used when funds are transferred from a credit card or debit card to a company or a person via a website when there has been a purchase of products and services.
While making payments online is indeed handy, there is more to online payment than the convenience it provides both payers and payees. First, it is very environmentally friendly. You will not believe how many trees are saved because of this paperless payment option. Bills are made of paper, which means they are made from trees. Since you are not going to hand in paper bills to pay off a loan, you give the deteriorating forests in the world a greater chance of continued existence. The same holds true for checks.
Also, since online payment is available, online billing is not far behind. Companies need not send bills via mail. They can give clients bill updates through email or even text messages thus saving lots of paper, and ultimately, trees and forests.
Aside from saving forests, online payment saves money too. Since you can pay your bills without mailing the money or going to the bank, you do not have to worry about postage costs and gas prices. Plus, it is less likely that you will be late in paying your bills since online payments can be made wherever you are so you can say goodbye to additional fees.
Online payment is easy. You simple have to register then you can start paying bills.
1.Double check all the details especially the billing information and the credit card number.
2.It is better if you go to a website where you can pay not just one kind of bill. There are a number of sites where you can pay your credit card bills as well as your utility bills, and other bills for that matter.
3.Set up your account in a way that funds are only transferred when authorized. As they say, better safe than sorry.
