Long lines and late fees are a thing of the past; today’s bill payment office is compact enough to fit in your pocket.
Yes, we’re talking about online bill payment and utility payment portals. Although we now have some very safe and common options for online bill payments, most of us are wary.
In reality, according to a recent survey, 80% of Indians still use cash to pay for our various utilities. Although this isn’t always a bad thing, online payments are quickly becoming a necessity.
Here are five ways that online payment will simplify your life.
- Theft Risk Is Minimal
If we have cash on hand, we’re all on high alert.
Meanwhile, online payment portals allow you to pay your bills directly from your bank account, eliminating the need to withdraw and hand over cash and risk losing it.
- Minimizes Human Error
We’ve all had experiences where the cashier on the other end of the line forgets to register our transaction, resulting in late payments and the inconvenience of repayment.
Online payment portals take care of this for you by sending you (and them) an instant receipt of the transaction.
- Instant Transactions
Remember when you had to queue at the BSNL office with your bill and cash in hand to get your monthly broadband?

A significant benefit is that you don’t have to wait for your BSNL bill payment to be processed in queues; payments and recharges are made instantly.

Online payment eliminates the need to print bills or fill out several forms.
It is easy enough to use that anyone who can read and write can conduct business online.
Most significantly, as we saw during the pandemic, you can pay your bills from the comfort of your own house.
