Fiserv has doubled the number of bills that consumers can pay using the CheckFreePay NextDay walk-in bill payment service, which ensures next business day payment delivery, bringing the total number of bills available for this payment option to more than 600. The expansion accommodates America’s sizeable population of cash-preferred consumers and their increased demand for faster, in-person bill payment processing.
The CheckFreePay bill payment service from Fiserv enables consumers to walk in and pay common household expenses such as utility, mobile phone, insurance, auto and credit card bills via a nationwide retail agent network.
“In-person financial services provide a way for consumers to actively manage their financial lives, which is particularly important in the current economic climate,” said Paul Harrison, senior vice president and general manager, Walk-In Solutions, Fiserv. “The CheckFreePay NextDay bill payment service allows consumers to hold onto their money longer, and is much less expensive than typical ’emergency’ payment products.”
