The Best Ways to Pay Bills in the Philippines

In this section, let us take a look at the different methods for bills payment and create a guide pay bills. Some of these are online, some are not.

1. Bills Payment Centres

A bills payment service is an establishment. It has a physical location (for example in business centers), and it has tied up with financial services companies to be able to transmit your funds to your biller.

Here are some of the most common payment services:

7-Eleven

This is a 24/7 convenience store spread out all over the country. You simply have to go there with your billing statement, and then tell the cashier that you want to pay. The cashier will take your payment, input something in the computer, and then give you a receipt.

Robinsons

This is a big mall that has lots of branches in the Philippines. There is a section in each mall, mostly in the Customer Service area, where you can pay  bills. Just hand them over the bill and cash, and they will process your payment.

Cebuana Lhuillier

This is a pawnshop that has many branches and franchises in the country. Their primary business is to offer loans with your jewellery as collateral. You get bills payment here like you would in the establishments we mentioned earlier.

Bayad Center

This is a company that has kiosks in business centers. Sometimes, you will find Bayad center in malls. Most Bayad Center businesses are seen inside malls. They also have a partnership with other businesses in the country like pawnshops.

SM Payment Centre

Like Robinsons, this is a big mall with a country-wide presence. The payment centre is also located in the Customer Service area.

Take note that many of these facilities do not accept bills payment if you are already overdue. As such, it is best that you pay  bills before the due date.

2. Mobile Apps of Banks

The second method by which you can pay  bills is through the mobile apps of banks. You can do the same from a browser if the bank has no app yet.

The beauty of this is that paying bills no matter where you are. For example, you can pay bills it while you are on vacation. The way it works is that the bank will take the funds from your savings or checking account. What this means is that you cannot get bills payments if your bank account does not have enough balance to cover the bill. Also, you only have to register your biller’s account number once. You do not have to type the numbers again.

To get started with this, you must have an online account with the bank for bills payment or credit card. This is the only hassle because some banks in the Philippines require you to appear in person before they activate your online account.

3. ATMs

Banks also allow you to pay your bills through the machines. You can do this if you have an ATM card or credit cards. To do it, just insert your card and enter your PIN. Then, press on “Others,” and you will be presented with an option to pay your bills.

From there, you will choose your biller, input the amount of your bill, and the biller’s reference number for your account.

4. E-payment systems

The last on our list is e-payment systems. These are third-party companies where you integrate your funding source. They are like PayPal, but they work for Philippine companies only.

Here are the most popular e-payment systems in the country:

GCash

Owned by Globe Telecoms, this is one of the pioneers of cashless transactions for bills payment in the country.

PayMaya

This is an app where you can get bills payment and send money to another person. You can even pay someone to his or her GCash through your PayMaya account. It is easy to learn how paying bills online with this system.

Coins.ph

This is primarily a trading platform for coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum, but they have added ways by which you can pay bills from the system.

ECPay

An all-in-one platform where you can pay your bills online. They also have physical locations like Bayad Center. As of this time, they have more than 5,000 physical locations.

It is up to you to choose which of these systems you prefer. The best, of course, is an online payment system. With an app, you no longer have to go and queue. Even if they charge fees like ₱10, it is still worth it compared to paying for gasoline and wasting time.

FAQ

  • What is the best way to pay your bills?
    You can pay your bills both online and offline. Choose the best method for you.
  • How do I pay my bills out of the country?
    There are several payment options: - By Credit Card - By International Money Transfer Online - By PayPal - By Western Union.
  • Is paying your bills automatically a good idea?
    Automatic payment of bills can help you make payments on time. This is a useful option.

Why is it important to pay your bills on time?

You have to get bills payment on time to prevent getting charged with late fees. This is especially so for credit card companies. If you pay your bills on time, you will also have peace of mind. Unpaid bills can stress you out.

The worst possible thing that can happen is that the service is cut-off. For example, if you do not pay your electric bill on time, they will cut off your power supply. If this happens, you can no longer pay your bills from any of these facilities. Instead, you have to go to the utility provider’s office, and pay your bill and late fee from there.

On top of that, you have to pay a reconnection fee. And even after you pay your reconnection fee, do not expect the company to reconnect your service right away. It can take days or even weeks.

How to prioritize your bills in the time of COVID-19

This time of the pandemic is crucial for everybody. There is just no legitimate reason for you to spend money on frivolous things. To be able to survive, you have to set your bills in order of priority to avoid debts.

First, you have to pay your rent. Second, pay your utilities. This is the proper order of bills payment. If you do not pay bills, you may get evicted – the last thing you want is not to have a place to stay.

You can buy extra time to pay your bills. But you can’t get away from them. Missing deadlines can affect your relationship with the invoice issuer and even ruin your credit rating. Remember that some payment centres send payments in real time and some payments take two to three working days. So remember to pay your bills at least three working days before the deadline so that the payment arrives on time and you avoid being late.
