Bills, Bills, Bills: Your Complete Guide to Online Payments and Platforms

(SPOT.ph) Two years and counting of COVID-19 has made bills payment an electronic, rather than a manual chore. Fees aside, online settlements are convenient and safe compared to masking up and going outdoors.

Most utilities and services can be paid via GCash, ShopeePay, or through the Bayad app, Bayad Center’s official mobile application. If you want to streamline using a single account, debit and credit card payments are also accepted.

Before you proceed, take note of your account numbers, subscriber numbers, and due dates. Apps like GCash, ShopeePay, and Bayad come with features that let you set reminders so you don’t forget to pay. They’ll also let you save the numbers for later so you can go straight to payment.

Most utilities have their own websites that provide the exact amount you need to pay every month. If you don’t have accounts registered for the specific service provider, write down your monthly bill ahead of using third party apps or partner banks so you know exactly how much you need.
