Direct Bill Payments and its consumer benefits

Direct Bill Payments is a form of electronic bill payment that allows consumers to pay their bills for services or products over the internet through their banks. This ensures that bills are paid on time even if you’re travelling on business, ill or even on vacation. 

Direct Bill Payments eliminate late payment fees because payments are automatically deducted from your account on the bills due date provided the account has sufficient funds. 

Direct Bill Payments transactions occur in the form of money transfer from a user’s account arranged either through an online bank or any other financial institution, which provides users with an account and routing number for the party they wish to pay bills to. 

This service is used by customers who have ongoing bills, allowing them to authorize regular monthly withdrawals by service providers as payment for those bills.  The payments are may be processed immediately. Once they are authorized, they can’t be typically halted. If the customer doesn’t have enough money to pay a given bill, the financial institution may charge an overdraft fee to the account.
