Here’s how some folks do it. First, there’s the frantic hunt for the bills, which have been stashed away in a drawer or on top of the fridge.
Then there’s the frenzied search for the checkbook, which has mysteriously disappeared from the desk. Next, the futile quest to find a pen that works. Also stamps – let’s hope someone remembered to buy them after last month’s bill-paying marathon.
Sorting through the bills, writing the checks, and addressing the envelopes take up more precious time. Finally, there’s the trip to the nearest mailbox or post office, in hopes of catching the day’s mail pickup.
Does any of that sound familiar? Fortunately, there is an easier way.
When you sign up for online banking with WWFCU, you can use the online bill payment system to send money to almost any company or individual.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of online bill pay.
The process of online bill payment is designed to be quick and easy. Making a payment is as simple as logging into the WWFCU website, typing in a few numbers, and clicking the mouse.
Once you have set up the bills to be paid, it will take you literally seconds to make a payment.
All you need is your computer and an Internet connection.
You have great flexibility in the way you pay your bills, too. For example, pay bills manually by going online and selecting the ones you want to pay right now.
Or schedule payments in advance, and set up automatic payments for recurring bills. This reduces the chance of late or overlooked payments.
Have you ever mislaid a bill or forgotten to make a payment? Paying all or most of your bills online can help you stay organized and keep track of your finances.
With online bill pay, your account and billing information is stored in one location. You have an electronic record of every payment, showing the date and the amount. You can easily refer back to it at any time and print out the information.
Online bill pay is safe and secure. In fact, online banking is considered safer than paying by check through the mail. It’s also a good way to guard against identity theft.
Fraudsters can use the information from discarded bills and lost checkbooks to steal your identity. When you switch to online bill pay and receive your bills electronically, you eliminate those documents and reduce your vulnerability.
