Before you say anything, I couldn’t think of a better title. The real irony is I have worked in the bill pay world for over 12 years and have seen plenty of growth, change, and true evolution. The better part of my professional career has been spent advising, managing, partnering, or selling bill pay. So why, after 12 years, do I need to make the case for it? The answer is simple … more than 10 times a week I am told bill pay is a commodity and old news. Not to mention, last year Gonzo Banker wrote an article titled, “Is bill pay dead and gone in 5 years?” Now let’s be realistic, dead and gone? Are the billions of bills that go out to consumers and businesses going to stop? Are we going to immediately have all our bills automatically withdraw from our account as soon as they are due? This is where the true dilemma comes in for “killing” bill pay. The Gonzo Banker article is only looking at one fraction of bill pay (that is currently responsible for almost 50% of the payments made every month). There is a whole other world of bill pay out there and it is not dying, it is growing by the day.
