When I ask customers if they would like to try online bill pay some say they already pay their bills online, but they go through their providers’ websites. “Same thing right?”
Well not quite! You are paying your bills online, but you are doing it the hard way. Online bill pay from a bank gives you one stop shop to pay all your bills at the same time, instead of going to numerous websites to pay each bill individually. You enter in the name of the payee you want to pay, how much, and when. Just log in and take care of everything all at once.
You can process payments online to anyone, even if they do not have their own online payment system set up. The payments are processed on whatever day you choose. Some larger companies accept payments electronically aka ACH (Automated Clearing House) while others still require a check to be mailed. Either way this is a fast, convenient way to pay your bills. Anyone with a mailbox can get a payment from online bill pay!
At Central National Bank you can test drive bill pay for up to six months to see if you like the convenience. So forget the stamps, envelopes, and going to several websites to pay your bills!
