Over Half of Internet Users Pay Some Bills Online — Do You?

I love being able to do my banking online, in the comfort of my home and mainly away from long line-ups at the bank. Unless I absolutely have to, you're rarely ever going to see me stepping into a bank.

A new study shows that 51 percent of Internet users in Canada and the US are now paying at least one monthly bill online. Unlike back in 2004 when only 33 percent were doing so. I guess more people are stepping up with the times, saving trees and putting their good ol' Internets to work!

What about you? Do you pay your bills online?

I pay a couple of things online but not everything. I usually call in my car payment, insurance payment and credit cards

I pay all my bills online, except for my car payments. For whatever reason, my lenders don't offer it, which is a bummer!

100% and Tidalwave is right! Most bank offer it and it gives you more control than when having to log in to EACH company. You can even send payments to a person instead of a company. I send my bf's mom his car insurance pmt through our bank; she gets a check on my behalf. It's sooo much easier and cheaper; especially now that postage is so high!

I only pay my Comcast and AT&T bills online; the rest I pay through checks and mail. My grandma sends me new stamps every month; gotta use them up! It really sucks that the postage rate keeps changing on me.

I pay all of them online, except rent, which I take to the office. I don't know how I was able to pay with checks through the mail before.

Yep, though some are automatic, and some I have to initiate each month. Saves paper and postage!

I HATE banks. They are notorious for poor customer service. If I had to go into a branch every time I needed something, All my money would be in a box under my mattress. And thats what I did for years until online banking came along. So online banking has made a world of difference for me.

Phone and credit card- always. Insurance about half the time. Neither insurance company we use has their online bill pay setup in a really great way, so I can only do it when I have the policy numbers sitting in front of me.

For those of you saying that the company doesn't offer it, does your bank? I have completely stopped making account through every bloody company and just use my BillPay through my bank. That way I just go to my online Banking and I can check on all my bills sent and it can be automated. You can sell an electronic check to ANY company or ANY person! Definitely go look into that! It's free for me.

All my bills are paid online. (Except a few that are paid by credit card... but then I pay off my credit card online.) I looked at my checkbook a few days ago (to get my account number so someone could pay ME online) and it turns out I've only used seven checks ever. Two of them were voided.

We pay almost all of our bills online. The only one we can't pay online is our water bill, but city hall is only four blocks away, so we just drop it off there on our way somewhere.
