Want to Get Smart About Paying Bills? There’s an App for That.
If you’re paying your bills late every month, you’re not alone. With the majority of households managing an average of 10 bills per month on a variety of platforms, it’s not surprising that even the most organized consumers can miss a payment. Studies show that more than 20 million consumers pay at least one bill late per month and that late fees continue to grow exponentially. Paying bills late can have more implications that simply losing money each month; it can also affect your credit score and mortgage rates.
While Billshark fights to lower your monthly bills, new intelligent bill pay apps like BillGO are helping consumers manage and pay their bills on time.
