Bills Payment: Where To Settle Your Dues When You’re in a Rush?

Forgetting to pay your bills can have some pretty serious consequences. For example, if you’re late for a few days, you might incur penalties. Even if the additional fee is just a few pesos on top of your original bill, it can still accumulate if you’re always late on payments.

Late payment fees are just the tip of the iceberg, though. It becomes an even bigger problem if a few weeks have passed after the due date. If this happens, your services might get cut off, and you would have to endure not having access to water, electricity, and internet for a few days until you’ve made your payment. What’s worse is that you may be charged reconnection fees, with the amount depending on your service provider.

If you’re having a hard time settling your dues at the billing offices themselves, don’t worry because we offer a simple solution. Here at Cebuana Lhuillier, our branches also act as bill payment centers. Simply ask our staff about our bills payment services, and they will be more than happy to assist you!

Where Can You Pay Your Bills

If you’re an ordinary Filipino, it’s understandable if your daily grind is already eating up much of your time. All the work you have to manage may be the reason you forget to settle your dues. However, as a responsible citizen, it’s still your duty to pay your bills, even if it’s a bit late. Here are a few places or establishments you can visit to process your payments:

Billing Offices

You can always go to the billing office to settle your dues, but there are a few downsides to doing so. The first one is that each service provider has a separate establishment, so if you’re paying for electricity, water, and internet, you will have to visit three different facilities.

Another disadvantage of going to the billing office is you might have to line up for a while. By the time you get served, it’s highly likely that both you and the cashier behind the desk are already worn out. There are ways to avoid long lines, though, such as going as early as possible, perhaps even before the establishment opens. You can also pay your bills a few weeks before the due date when no one else is hurrying to pay.

Bill Payment Centers

If you’re in a bit of a rush, you can go to a bill payment center. These facilities or establishments help you settle your monthly dues for a small fee. The primary downside, apart from the tiny amount you will be charged, is that the transaction isn’t processed immediately. Given this, it might not be a good option if the due date for your bill is just a day away.

However, there are still many benefits of settling your internet, electricity, and water bills at payment centers. One major advantage is that you do not have to line up too long.

Now, you might be wondering, “where can I find a bills payment center near me?” Don’t worry because they’re easy to find. You can go to the following commercial facilities or establishments:

  • Malls and Supermarkets – If you often go to the mall or grocery store to unwind or buy essentials, it’s a good idea to pay your bills there, as well. You can go to the establishment’s service center and ask the staff if they offer bills payment solutions.
  • Convenience Stores –Convenience stores are one-stop shops for anything you need, and of course, you can pay your bills there, as well. In many cases, these stores have self-service machines that can process bill payments. If you don’t know how to use it, you can always seek help from the staff.
  • Cebuana Lhuillier – There are more than 2,500 Cebuana Lhuillier branches nationwide, and all of them can help you pay your bills. The staff will walk you through the entire process, so all you need to do is follow the steps they provide.

At Home

Nowadays, you can pay your bills at home or anywhere else as long you have a mobile device with access to the internet. All you need to do is download a bills payment app and use it to make your internet, water, or electricity bills payment. It’s a very convenient way to settle your dues because you no longer have to travel and can process the transaction while sitting comfortably on your couch.

When paying your bills with your mobile device, it’s best to research which apps you can download. You can also consider using the eCebuana app. It is linked to your micro savings account at Cebuana Lhuillier, so you can access your money anytime. From the app, you can press the bills payment option to settle your monthly dues.

The eCebuana app is easy to use, so you can learn how to pay your bills with it almost instantly. More importantly, it’s a safe option because you will be given an electronic confirmation if a transaction is successful.
