Gmail Could Add Bill Pay Service


Recommended Posts

Google is reportedly working on a new service "that will allow Gmail users to more easily receive bills in their email inbox instead of their mailbox," and it "also is designed to let people pay their bills within Gmail, rather than having to go to a telecom or utility company’s website to complete a payment." The service is currently known as Pony Express and is expected to be made available in the fourth quarter of this year. Documents reviewed by Recode indicate that Google is likely "partnering with third-party vendors that print and mail out bills on behalf of service providers such as insurance companies, telecom companies and utilities." Users will be required to provide personal information such as mailing address and Social Security Number to verify their identity before enrolling in the service. After verification, users will be able to pay their bills directly from their inbox using linked credit/debit cards or bank accounts.
