ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 Feedback

Many people are ditching the old checks and stamps. Instead, they're getting online to pay bills. For many companies it isn't a new concept. But it is new at Albany Water, Gas, and Light. Last month customers first got the chance to pay their utility bill online or by phone. Since June 16th, about ten percent of Water, Gas, and Light's 40 thousand customers have made the switch to online payments.

Sherry Harbuck, the Sales Manager at Heritage bank in Albany says many of their customers use online banking to pay most of their bills.  "The benefits of online banking are they're safe, convenient, fast, you don't have to buy a stamp, you don't have to worry about going to the post office. You don't have to worry about writing a check. So you save your fees there," she says.

Heritage Bank is taking convenient bill payment to the next level in September. Bank customers will be able to make payments over the phone with a new mobile banking system.
