How Bill Pay Works

Have you ever heard of bill pay?  If not, bill pay is a great thing that a lot of banks are now providing for their customers.  We all hate paying bills because it is always a hassle, we have to mail out 10 different bills to different addresses, get stamps, envelopes, and it can be pretty time consuming.  Since none of us like paying bills, the banks have provided an extremely easy way to do it now.

If you’re bank has bill pay, many do for example one bank that does it Bank of America.  What you’ll do is go online into your bank accounts.  Sign in and go to your home page.  You’ll see something that says bill pay, click on that, and you can pay your bills right there.  All you need to do now is simply type in the address of the bill that you’re going to mail, and then type in how much money you want to send them.  Click send, and right there, they will send the person or company your money. 

What is great is that all your billing companies and names will be saved so that the next time you want to pay your bill again, they will be saved, and ready to go.  That means all you have to do is type in how much you want to pay them. 

Bill pay is extremely easy, and is very beneficial.  People have been doing this for a while, haven’t seen any problems, and the money always gets delivered.  Once your bill goes through, your bank account will be deducted that certain amount of money.  You’ll just always want to make sure you have money in your account to avoid any fees.   Because obviously if there is no money in your account, you can’t pay your bills

So, if you’re looking for an extremely easy way to pay your bills, check and see if your bank has bill pay.  It is the best way to pay all your bills, and literally only takes a minute or two for your bills to be sent out.  Also, did I mention bill pay is FREE?
